Federal Court Hearing For Democratic Campaign Treasurer Postponed

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Kinde Durkee, the Burbank-based campaign treasurer being investigated for allegedly embezzling millions of dollars from clients, will not appear in federal court this week as scheduled.

The preliminary hearing on the calendar for Wednesday was pushed back to Dec. 9 under an agreement between the U.S. attorney’s office in Sacramento, Durkee and her attorney.

Lauren Horwood, a spokeswoman for U.S. Atty. Benjamin B. Wagner, said the postponement was needed to give prosecutors and Durkee’s attorney, Daniel V. Nixon, more time to examine the evidence. The stipulation says, “The government needs additional time to conclude its investigation, including reviewing, analyzing, and synthesizing materials that have been produced, and will be produced.”

She declined to say whether the evidence in the investigation was being presented to a grand jury.

Nixon could not immediately be reached for comment.

    The FBI and DEA use gang members to harass suspects. Several corrupt DEA and FBI are angry that I complained to the San Francisco Attorney General’s office. I complained that they where fabricating evidence and stealing from me. For pay back they poisoned my dog to death. Osama Bin-Laden likely died a more human death than my dog. But that is not enough.

    One of many occasions…on Oct 17 2011, 7:30PM at the “Milpitas Great Mall” in Milpitas California, corrupt FBI and DEA where using gang members to threaten violence against me because I will not let them get away with stealing from me.
