WASHINGTON — Rep. Ken Calvert (R-CA) is so concerned about mail fraud that he introduced legislation that would double the penalties for those convicted of theft via the U.S. Postal Service.

Now, it appears Calvert himself has fallen victim to the kind of fraud he’s trying to prevent — the latest in a litany of lawmakers and political committees who together have lost millions of dollars in political cash to recent financial criminals.

For Calvert, his leadership political action committee — Eureka Political Action Committee — experienced an “unauthorized expense” worth $9,900 in late August, according to a filing with the Federal Election Commission reviewed by Raw Story.

Calvert’s committee told federal regulators that it believes someone stole a check while it was in transit in the U.S. mail, which the thief “recreated and cashed to an unauthorized entity.”
