'The 50th' Tells Story Of Hunter Resignation, Race To Replace Him
The scandal that forced Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter to resign his congressional seat is the subject of a new San Diego Union-Tribune documentary series called: "The 50th: A scandal. A dynasty. An election."
Sam Hodgson, the producer and photojournalist behind the series, joins Midday Edition on Monday to discuss why the newspaper decided to tell the story in a documentary series.
The series will be screened Wednesday evening at The California Center for the Arts in Escondido. It will be followed by a Q&A with Hodgson and reporter Morgan Cook, the reporter who broke the story. Tickets are available at sandiegouniontribune.com/the50th.
The series will also be available at sandiegouniontribune.com beginning Thursday.
