Maxine Waters Busted Funneling More Than $100,000 in Campaign Funds To Her Own Daughter
Opinion| Maxine Waters has been calling for President Donald Trump to be impeached ever since the 2016 election, regardless of the lack of reason or evidence. She prides herself on being a part of the anti-Trump movement and is not shy about it. It is simply amazing there’s not a single peep in the press about her own transgressions, unethical behavior and possible criminal activity she’s been involved in.
Multi-millionaire Maxine Waters is still protesting Trump’s low black unemployment, exposing her desire to keep black unemployment high, so as to make more and more of her constituents dependent on the government and her. However, as Waters goes on and on about how “corrupt” Trump is, she’s the one guilty of handing over more than $100,000 in campaign funds to her own daughter. Something smells like corruption. Recent election filings made by the California Representative may prove that she is guilty of a whole lot of illegal activity.
The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters is paying her daughter more than $100,000 in campaign funds this election cycle, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
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.
The first time that Representative Waters’ campaign debt to her daughter was pointed out was in April of last year. The Washington Free Beacon reported that the campaign had not reported any payments. Since that report, the campaign went on to report nine different payments to Karen Waters. The FEC files that TheDCNF reviewed showed that these payments ranged from $3,000 all the way to $7,000.
Waters’ ethics have been in question in the past, too. Even though a portion of millennial voters have a soft spot for Waters, the leftist watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (aka CREW), called Waters one of the “most corrupt” Congress members.
The group stated, “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. She never disclosed that her husband held stock in the bank.”
Unfortunately, some millennials don’t understand the severity of “Auntie Maxine’s” (as they have called her) actions.
The Daily Beast reported that a Campaign Zero cofounder, Brittany Packet, spoke with BuzzFeed last month. She explained that the Congresswoman had become an instant “hero” to anti-Trump internet trolls. She stated, “We needed someone right now to shine the light of truth in a way that wakes us all up. Congresswoman Waters is that light. She’s shaking it up and telling the truth, and we all owe her for it. She’s the Auntie Boss: As real as your Auntie and as powerful as only a black woman could be.”
Multiple aides to various other progressive members of Congress who spoke with The Daily Beast expressed varying degrees of surprise that Waters had been catapulted into the limelight as a leading warrior against Trump’s agenda and his financial conflicts of interest, given her own recent past, when Waters was accused of steering of taxpayer bailout money to a bank in which her husband was financially involved.
The Conservative watchdog group of the National Legal and Policy Center’s chairman, Kim Boehm, explained, “When ethics groups of all political leanings agree that a particular member of Congress does not have the minimal ethics needed for the position, it is strange that that member parades as an advocate of ethics. That describes the current odd posturing of Maxine Waters.”
Waters Tells Off Kanye
Love him or hate him (or be blissfully unaware of his existence), Kanye West made his fortune through his own talent and sales ability. Waters made her money from you.
A week and a half ago, Waters blew up at Kanye who had suggested that black Americans need not be Democrats as a matter of course. Speaking with left-wing friendly media, Waters said:
“Kanye West is a very creative young man… but we also think that sometimes West talks out of turn and perhaps he needs some assistance in helping him to formulate some of his thoughts.”
What on earth is with Maxine Waters wanting to “help” black Americans who are already doing just fine on their own? He doesn’t need you!
“We don’t think that he actually means to do harm, but we’re not sure he really understands the impact of what he’s saying, at the time that he’s saying it and how that weighs on, particularly the African-American community, and for young people in general.”
Whoa, slow down there lady.
Kanye’s a lyricist. You don’t like what he’s saying, but the man makes his money based on how he arranges words in a sentence. You can’t pretend that he’s slipped up a bit and didn’t really mean it.
Second of all, the African-American community is doing much better under MAGA than they ever were under Barack Obama.
Lastly, young people are turning away from Democrats but it’s not Kanye’s fault. Now that the Trump economy is bringing jobs and stability, the precious millennials that handed 2008 to Barack Obama are now able to afford homes and families.
It’s astounding that Waters can wake up every morning and try to keep black Americans down by insulting any blacks who come out as conservative, Republican or even just anti-Democrat. But she’s made her money on the grievance industry, and in order to stay in her position where she calls everyone racist, she needs to keep being able to find instances of racism despite constantly making it all up as she goes.
