Democrat Treasurer Arrested

From the Orange County Register:

A prominent Democratic campaign treasurer who works for federal, state and O.C. lawmakers including U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Rep. Loretta Sanchez and state legislators Lou Correa and Jose Solorio has been arrested by the FBI on suspicion of mail fraud, The Orange County Register has learned.

U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Thom Mrozek confirmed Saturday afternoon that Kinde Durkee of Burbank-based Durkee and Associates, was arrested by the FBI on a criminal complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento. Special Agent Steve Dupre of the bureau’s Sacramento office said she was arrested in connection with her position as a campaign treasurer…

Since this is being done under a Democrat Administration, I can only figure that she stole above her station…because when you have a party of Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank and Charlie Rangel, I can’t see how dipping your fingers in to the campaign coffers is considered all that bad.  I mean, it isn’t like this is her first brush with the law – as the report goes on to note:

…Durkee has had enforcement actions taken against her four times by the state Fair Political Practices Commission, primarily for failing to report transactions or information. She has also received at least a half a dozen enforcement warning letters from the commission and stipulated to a violation before the City of San Diego Ethics Commission…

So, serial ethics problems over the years hasn’t deterred Democrats from working with her…in other words, par for the course in Democrat politics, where the only moral test is that of success.  If you win, then you did good…and it doesn’t matter how you win.  Given all this, it must be something other than her corruption which got a Democrat controlled Justice Department after her…and it will be interesting to see how this unfolds; who did what to whom, as it were.
