Ex-campaign treasurer Kinde Durkee pleads guilty to fraud

Friday, March 30, 2012

imageAnother of the state's one-time political high-fliers has fallen. As expected, Democratic campaign treasurer Kinde Durkee, whom the FBI says embezzled from a who’s who of California politicians that included Sen. Dianne Feinstein, pleaded guilty today in Sacramento. A federal judge delayed deciding how long she’ll spend behind bars, Capitol Alert says.

Add: In all, the 59-year-old Durkee was accused of stealing more than $7 million from at least 50 politicos and using the money to pay her mortgage, business expenses and a slew of other stuff, including L. A. Dodgers tickets and Disneyland passes.
