One of those losing almost $5 million was Senator Dianne Feinstein.
She’s now asking the Federal Election Commission to allow previous donors who have maxed out to her reelection war chest to give again.
She says she needs to make up what Kindee Durkee allegedly embezzled from her campaign.
Durkee, a longtime Democratic treasurer with ties to hundreds of state, local and federal campaigns, has been charged by the Justice Department with diverting at least $660,000 from a California state lawmaker’s campaign account.
Damn, that’s a scary picture.
She’s also suspected of having diverted millions more, including the $4.5 million from Feinstein’s Senate committee.
Durkee is scheduled to appear in court next week.
She hasn’t been formally charged with taking money from the Feinstein campaign, although FBI agents and DOJ prosecutors are attempting to unravel the alleged embezzlement scheme, which could be the largest ever.
