Bank Keeps Clients Of Arrested Treasurer Kinde Durkee From Accessing Their Cash


It's likely Durkee's alleged crimes will affect a plethora of mostly Democratic campaigns and organizations. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) have said their campaign chests were nearly wiped out. But so far, the feds have only named one assemblyman that Durkee allegedly pilfered from.

Meanwhile, details of Durkee's business dealings continue to emerge. One former employee told the Washington Post's T.W. Farnam that Durkee showed no signs of an extravagant lifestyle, and typically arrived at the office by 6 a.m., regularly working 60 hours per week.

"She drove a ratty truck that was barely running," the employee said. "That thing was in the shop all the time."
