Treasurer for Filner, Davis, others arrested
A Southern California campaign treasurer who has worked for elected officials in San Diego County including Reps. Susan Davis and Bob Filner was arrested last week on a federal fraud charge.
It’s unclear to what extent the officials may have been victimized, as details of the charges won’t be released until Tuesday.
Kinde Durkee was arrested Friday at Durkee and Associates in Burbank and charged with one count of mail fraud, said Lauren Horwood, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento. The arrest was first reported by The Orange County Register.
Horwood told The Watchdog the complaint focuses on transactions involving the campaign account of one state Assembly member, and the investigation is ongoing.
On Saturday, Assemblyman Jose Solorio, D-Santa Ana, said he was a victim of alleged mail fraud by Durkee, writing in a message to constituents that he was contacted by the FBI on Friday.
