When it comes to corruption, Democratic politicians seem to be in some sort of strange competition with one another to see who can rack up the biggest scandal or who can be crowned the king of waste spending, or something of that nature.
Hardly a day goes by that you don’t hear about some member of Congress doing something shady, and nine times out of ten, that individual is a progressive. Not sure why that is, exactly, but something about that particular worldview just seems to entice folks to do things they know they shouldn’t do.
A good example of this is Rep. Maxine Waters — who you might know better for the aggressive call she continues to make for the impeachment of President Trump — who is paying her daughter more than $100,000 in campaign funds this election cycle, according to filings from the Federal Election Commission.
Citizens for Waters has already paid $42,862 to the congresswoman’s daughter, Karen Waters, since the beginning of 2017, FEC files show. The campaign is scheduled to pay the younger Waters another $65,000 for her “professional services” working on a “slate mailer,” according to the most recent FEC files.
Rep. Waters’s campaign debt to her daughter was first noted in April 2017 by the Washington Free Beacon. The campaign had yet to report any payments on the debt at that time. Since then, the campaign has reported nine payments to Karen Waters ranging from $3,000-$7,000, according to FEC files reviewed by TheDCNF.
This isn’t the first time that Waters’ ethics have been called into question.
A left-wing watchdog group called Citizens for Responsibility in Washington has called Waters “one of the most corrupt members in Congress.”
“In the midst of a national financial catastrophe, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) used her position as a senior member of Congress and member of the House Financial Services Committee to prevail upon Treasury officials to meet with OneUnited Bank,” CREW explained. “She never disclosed that her husband held stock in the bank.”
In other words, Waters — who constantly slams Trump and seemingly attempts to paint him as some sort of shady, corrupt politician — is a huge hypocrite, going after others for behavior she herself participates in without a second thought.
Perhaps she needs to cool the rhetoric and retire from the world of politics before she sells what little bit of her soul she has left.
Until then…maybe I’ll go to work for Maxine!
