The Fall of Kindee Durkee

Campaign treasurer blames "bad business" on losing millions of Democratic campaign funds

by Brian Leubitz

Kindee Durkee is something akin to Lord Voldemort in the corridors of Democratic fundraisers. She squandered millions of dollars from a long list of Democrats, including several million from Sen. Feinstein.  Turns out that she apparently was really, really not cut out for the job. From a court filing (via SacBee):

"Although a significant amount of money was used to pay for personal expenses, including mortgage payments and credit card charges, a great deal of the stolen funds were used to keep the business afloat and her employees employed. ... Unfortunately, it spiraled out of control, she lost track of the amount of the shortfall and it ultimately reached a level that she will be unable to repay in her lifetime."

Durkee received 8 years for her crimes, but you would figure that she would be out sooner. Her career in accounting, well, that's over.
