No politician in Washington, D.C. today may be more corrupt than Maxine Waters.
She’s been getting away despite all sorts of scandals for years.
And Maxine Waters has proven ruling class elites play by different rules with this outrageously corrupt nepotism scheme.
A long, sordid family history
For over 45 years, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) has built a political machine in her California district that has made her nearly untouchable.
That level of power has clearly made Rep. Waters feel as though she can do whatever she wants, even if it involves scheming to make campaign funds appear in her family member’s bank accounts.
For decades, one of the worst kept secrets in Washington, D.C. has been the fact that Rep. Waters has absolutely mastered the art of not only using “public service” to make herself a millionaire, but also everyone around her.
As far back as 2004, The Los Angeles Times exposed the fact that Waters had funneled more than $1 million to members of her family over the prior eight years.
When the paper confronted Rep. Waters about the payments, she simply claimed “We don’t have to answer your questions. We are not bad people.”
But despite the corporate-controlled media briefly mentioning the rather clear ethics violations in passing, the story is almost always pushed out of sight as quickly as it pops up.
Now, it’s apparently time for the annual check-in on the Waters Crime Family’s enrichment scheme.
The Waters Crime Family scores again
According to a report from Fox Business, based on a Federal Elections Commission filing by Citizens for Waters, Rep. Maxine Waters’ campaign funneled another $8,000 payment to her daughter, Karen, and her company, Progressive Connections, in September.
That $8,000 payment brings the total funneled to Karen Waters and her company by her mother’s campaign up to some $50,000 for this year alone.
And the total the Waters campaign has shelled out to the Congresswoman’s daughter since 2003, has now topped more than $1 million.
The report went on to note that the payments to Karen Waters are supposedly compensation for organizing “slate-mailing operations” for her mother’s campaigns.
The only problem with that, Fox Business pointed out, is the fact that slate-mailing campaigns are an incredibly uncommon practice in federal elections.
The practice is so incredibly uncommon, in fact, in the 2020 general election, Maxine Waters was the only federal candidate to use slate-mailing.
“Slate-mailing is an uncommon practice in federal elections, where a consulting firm is hired to create a pamphlet of sorts that contains a list of candidates or policy measures, and advises voters how to cast their ballots,” Fox Business reported. “Rep. Waters, the U.S. House Financial Services Committee chairwoman, was reportedly the only federal politician to use a slate-mailer operation during the 2020 general election.”
So clearly, these payments – and all the others Maxine Waters has funneled to family members for nearly two decades – are totally legit.
Why else would Maxine Waters be the only federal candidate in the 2020 election nationwide to use slate-mailing that her daughter just happens to supply to the tune of more than a million dollars over the past two decades?
She’s certainly not the only Member of Congress funneling money to family members, though.
“Both Democrats and Republicans have paid relatives with campaign contributions over the years,” Fox Business added. “In 2020, OpenSecrets published a piece showing incumbent politicians in Congress on both sides of the aisle lavishing their family members with campaign cash. While it is legal for federal lawmakers to employ family members on campaigns, the practice is generally frowned upon by ethics experts.”
“House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., also has a history of shelling out campaign money to his family members, including his daughters and grandson, who received thousands in campaign cash this election cycle,” the report continued.
Clearly, the House and Senate Ethics Committees need to get off their hands and start launching some investigations.
But considering this is the Washington, D.C. Swamp we’re talking about, it’s probably best not to hold your breath on that.
