O.C. Congresswoman’s top aide resigns following eight-count indictment

The chief of staff to Rep. Mimi Walters resigned on Wednesday following an eight-count indictment related to his time in another member’s office, Politico reported.

David Bowser was charged with using nearly $44,000 of congressional office funds of his former boss, former Georgia Republican Congressman Paul Broun, to pay one of Broun’s campaign consultants, according to the Athens Banner-Herald. Bowser was also charged with obstructing a congressional investigation and making false statements.

Politico reporter John Bresnahan broke the news of the resignation on Twitter Thursday.

Walters, an Irvine Republican, was elected to Congress in 2014, after years in the state Legislature.

“David Bowser tendered his resignation on April 6, 2016,” according to a statement issued by Walters’ office. “The charges against him involve incidents alleged to have occurred in the office of former Georgia Congressman Paul Broun in 2012-2014, before Rep. Walters became a member of Congress.”

This story has been updated to include the statement from Walters’ office and to correct the day of Bowser’s resignation.

    Where Mimi and her Republican colleagues go, corruption is soon to follow.
