California regulators have accused the husband of an Orange County assemblywoman of misleading investors in his real estate lending business.
The Department of Real Estate alleged that Dan Harkey, husband of Assemblywoman Diane L. Harkey (R-Dana Point), engaged in self-dealing and made "misrepresentations of fact to investors."
The agency's disciplinary action seeks to suspend or revoke the corporate broker license issued to Harkey's three companies, Point Center Financial Inc., National Financial Lending Inc. and Calcomm Capital Inc.
An administrative hearing on the accusation, filed Nov. 19, has not been scheduled.
Harkey's attorney, Jeffrey Benice, said Harkey did nothing wrong and will defend himself vigorously. "We expect the DRE will dismiss its accusation," he said.
