For years, I’ve heard stories about Representative Maxine Waters, the loudmouth critic of President Trump. Not too long ago, we read about problems with a “family bank“.
According to news reports, Mrs. Waters has taken good care of her daughter:
Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, one of the most outspoken members of the anti-Trump ‘resistance’ in Congress, is facing fresh questions about a longstanding controversy regarding how her campaign raises money and how those funds have flowed to her daughter.
The California congresswoman has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars each election cycle from some of her state’s biggest politicians paying to be listed on her slate mailers—sample ballots traditionally mailed out to about 200,000 voters in Los Angeles highlighting whom she supports.
Since 2004, the campaign in turn reportedly has paid $750,000 to the congresswoman’s daughter, Karen Waters, or her public relations firm Progressive Connections for help producing them.
To be fair, it’s a free country and she can scream “Impeach 45” as often as she wants to. I don’t have to listen and usually don’t.
It’s also a capitalist country so we want people to do well and make money.
We are also a country of laws, public integrity and Mrs. Waters has a little explaining to do.
Again, we need some explanations about how her family has benefited from her office.
