Maxine Waters might be one of the sleaziest politicians to ever serve on Capitol Hill.
She’s a fraud… a hypocrite… and has even been caught red-handed bending federal election protocols time and time again.
But now, she must face the music.
As first reported by Townhall, Waters’ despicable tactics might finally be under investigation after The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) filed yet another complaint about Waters with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) earlier this year.
According to the claim by the NLPC, Waters’ sent out a fraudulent “slate mailer” which included former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigrosa who was running for Governor in the Democratic primary. His campaign agreed to pay a $25,000 fee for the mailer but failed to pay it. Instead, the mailer was paid for by a group called “Familied and Teachers for Antonio.”
In their filing, the NLPC explained “Whereas candidates like Villaraigosa may legally pay Waters’ campaign for the proportional costs of their inclusion on her slate mailer, it is not legal for such payment to be made by a third party like Families and Teachers for Antonio”.
Sound familiar? That’s because Waters’ campaign has been running these fraudulent slate mailers for YEARS.
The NLPC filed a similar complaint with the FEC during the 2016 elections. According to the NLPC, Waters’ campaign accepted $35,000 from the Democratic State Central Committee of California (DSCCC) which included then-Senate candidate Kamala Harris.
They have requested a full investigation from the FEC on the alleged violations as well as an audit of Waters’ campaign committee.
As reported by Fox News, the complaint stated… “ Since the commission has given federal campaigns broad discretion involving slate mailers it is imperative the issues cites in this complaint are fully investigated and all penalties and fines that may result from a finding that the Citizens for Waters campaign in violation of the statues cited should be applied in full.”
As previously reported on America Uncensored, Waters has gone to great lengths to bankroll herself and has had the audacity to even include her own family in this dirty arrangement. Including her daughter, Karen Waters who she has been paying to produce, print and send the mailers… talk about keeping it in the family.
But it’s hardly the first time Waters has been caught in some ethically questionable behavior.
During the height of the 2008 fiscal crisis, Waters helped arrange a meeting between the Treasury Department and top executives of a bank (OneUnited) where her husband was a shareholder.
Had that bank gone under, Waters’ husband would’ve lost as much as $350,000. Instead, OneUnited received a cool $12 million in bailout funds.
An ethics committee investigation eventually ruled that Waters didn’t technically break any rules, but it showed that she deliberately side-stepped prosecution AND leveraged her political muscle to benefit her family… a clear abuse of power.
Even the LIBERAL watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) named Waters one of the “most corrupt” members of Congress in 2011.
And it doesn’t look like much has changed since.
Maxine Waters’ actions should land her more than just in front of an ethics committee… perhaps she’ll FINALLY face jail time for her disgraceful actions.
