This is why Maxine Waters was called one of the “most corrupt” members of Congress…
California Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters is facing scrutiny for paying her daughter over $100,000 in campaign funds this election cycle.
According to Federal Election Commissions (FEC) filings reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation, Karen Waters, the congresswoman’s daughter, has been paid $42,862,000 since the beginning of 2017, according to FEC files. She is not done getting paid yet, either. She will be paid another $65,000 for her “professional services” which will be used while working on a “slate mailer.”
The Daily Caller reports:
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.
Rep. Waters has come under ethical scrutiny in the past.
Liberal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) named the California Democrat one of the “most corrupt” members of Congress in 2011.
“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.”
