Kinde Durkee, who controlled the funds of some 400 political candidates and groups, was arrested in September 2011 and charged with criminal mail fraud. She pleaded guilty in March as part of a deal with federal prosecutors.

 

Durkee, 59, appeared in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California and was ordered by Judge Kimberly Mueller to spend 97 months in federal custody and pay $10,529,915.76 in restitution.

Mueller said the loss of campaign funds “certainly” affected the democratic process and shook the faith of citizens who had made campaign donations.

“I want to take this opportunity to apologize for my actions,” Durkee said in court. “I take full and complete responsibility for what I have done.”

The arrest of the longtime treasurer for Democratic politicians left the campaigns of a number of elected officials in disarray.

  • Another round of construction stimulus? 2020/05/25
    Today, they say that some 42% of those jobs where people were laid off will not return anytime soon. Much like the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act provided billions for shovel ready projects, it may happen again. But will the judicial council drop the ball again and refuse the money AGAIN? Probably. They dislike the […]

  • The number of county courts open today should be zero. 2020/03/19
    Social isolation and maintaining a six foot distance from each other is critical to flattening the curve. It’s entirely irresponsible to require in-person appearances of anyone when social isolation cannot be maintained. Any court requiring people to appear is issuing the equivalent of a death sentence for some and a sickness sentence for others. That’s […] […]

  • Give more money to the Judicial Council for Court Construction? Have we gone mad in Sacramento? 2019/09/06
    Below is a judicial branch synopsis from a legislative analysis of infrastructure needs for the state. I think it is prudent to point out that the judicial council only feigns adhesion to fraud, waste and abuse laws and actually worked aggressively to weaken the laws pertaining to judicial branch whistleblowers. They did this by creating […]

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]
