As I understand it, Hunter’s name can’t be removed from the California ballot. They’ve already had their primary, and it’s “top two” like Washington’s are on the ballot in the general. This is a pretty red district, though, so I wouldn’t be shocked if an indicted congressman still wins the election. In Trumpworld, it even helps him – one more force fighting to put Hillary in jail LOL!
From a Republican standpoint…no problem with his indictment or possible guilt/conviction. He can just resign after elected, and California will need to hold a special election to elect his replacement…surely another Republican in this red district.
