A Republican congressman is taking flak after allegedly spending more than $1300 of campaign funds on Steam games.
California representative Duncan Hunter disclosed the payments - of which there were almost 70 between mid-October and mid-December last year - in a summary of his campaign finances.
The charges were listed as a "personal expense - to be paid back".
Hunter previously found internet fame after a video emerged of him vaping during a congressional hearing on whether e-cigarettes should be banned on planes. (Hunter's position was that vaping should indeed be allowed).
He subsequently penned a blog on the subject, which begins: "Yes, I vape."
The congressman has now blamed his account's Steam spending on his son using his credit card, although Hunter himself has spoken of his love for games - and argued against the regulation of violent games.
Hunter is now being investigated by the Federal Election Commission over the matter. His response is due by 9th May.
