Kinde Durkee, Near Plea Deal for Ripping Off Democratic Politicians, Makes a Love Match
Let us be more bold after the jump . . .

However, the Los Angeles Times is reporting (in a report I'd link you if I didn't have to pay-to-play) that Durkee is poised to cut a plea deal later this week. As it stands, she is accused in a 17-page complaint of transferring $7 million funds from the combined accounts of her clients to her Burbank firm Durkee and Associates without their permission.
She is then accused of using the ill-gotten loot to pay personal expenses, including a mortgage and credit card bills, as well as business expenses and payroll. For instance, $23,000 from Feinstein's federal campaign helped wipe out a $30,000 American Express bill with charges from Disneyland, Amazon.com, Trader Joe's and the Los Angeles Dodgers, the U.S. Attorney alleges.
Solorio, who was stung for $600,000--raising the question, "Fuck, you really need $600,000 to defend yourself in a heavily Democratic district?"--released a statement calling on the heat to "be aggressive in making sure Durkee serves as many years as possible in federal prison."
Perhaps she can make that love match with Rizzo there.
