Linda Sanchez takes steepest hit to campaign
Sanchez leads group of California Democrats reporting financial losses from former treasurer
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Records show that Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez's campaign finances took a steep hit from a former treasurer linked to an alleged embezzlement scheme.

Federal prosecutors have accused Kinde Durkee of siphoning nearly $700,000 from a California assemblyman, but the case has expanded to include several clients.

Sanchez reported to the Federal Election Commission that she lost about $322,000 as a result of an unauthorized withdrawal from her campaign account. That leaves the congresswoman with about $144,000 in the bank, or little more than half what she started with when the quarter began.

Sanchez's sister, Rep. Loretta Sanchez, reported she lost $125,000. Another California congresswoman, Democrat Susan Davis, reported that $160,000 was missing.
