U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter, a five-term Republican from San Diego County, was indicted on Tuesday with his wife on charges they used unlawfully campaign donations to cover personal expenses.

The 48-page indictment, filed in the U.S. District Court for California’s Southern District, accuses Hunter and his wife, Margaret, of financing trips to Hawaii, Italy and other tourist destinations and paying for school tuition, dental work and travel for relatives with campaign money over a seven-year period. The couple faces charges of conspiracy, wire fraud, falsification of records, bank fraud and prohibited use of campaign contributions.
