Kinde Durkee

Kinde Durkee, the campaign treasurer for many California Democrats who is accused of taking campaign funds for her personal use, was slated to be released from jail on $200,000 bond on Friday. [LAWeekly]

last week, FBI agents arrested Durkee for allegedly siphoning $677,000 out of state Assemblyman Jose Solorio’s 2010 campaign to pay for an array of debts.

Durkee allegedly admitted to the FBI that she has been misappropriating her clients’ money for years. Durkee had control of more than 400 political bank accounts.

Her extensive current and former client list includes the Coalition for Local Control, a committee at one time headed by San Luis Obispo mayor Jan Marx.

From today’s information on another site, it appears she got to Diane Fienstien’s money, too. LMAO!!

The Dems are getting a good solid taste-test of what they’ve been doing to Taxpayers for years and years! Poor Diane…she’s whining that she’s been wiped out!

Perhaps she and her husband can scoop into their accounts of millions and millions that they’ve been bilking from the US Taxpayers or call on the Chinese connections to replenish her campaign account!

Really? What makes her any different than the people she stole from. Politicians (all of them) are nothing but crooks any way, Just line her up with the politicians, they all wear the same coat. It was all money raised on lies and stealing if you really give it some thought. At the end of the day she is just another crooked politician sticking her hand in our pockets. Peace people.
