Rep. Maxine Waters isn’t the brightest member of Congress.
According to “The Washington Free Beacon,” Waters funneled campaign funds directly into her daughter, Karen Waters, bank account.
Since 2006, Waters has paid her daughter more than $650,000 from her mother’s semi-annual reelection campaign.
She is scheduled to receive a staggering $108,952.18 for her “work” in 2016.
What does Karen do? She runs Waters “slate mailer” operation, which constitutes “the selling of Rep. Waters’ endorsement for fellow Democrat candidates in exchange for direct or in-kind contributions to Waters’ committee.”
Conservative Tribune reports:
The endorsed candidates would then appear on a sort of sample ballot brochure that was mailed out to Waters’ Los Angeles-area constituents as a way to encourage those supporters of Waters to also vote for the other candidates that she had endorsed.
TheBlaze noted that the scheme was so lucrative that Citizens for Waters pulled in an estimated $300,000 in 2016 just from selling her endorsement, including $30,000 from then-Attorney General Kamala Harris, who was running to fill the seat of retiring Sen. Barbara Boxer.
They also noted that Rep. Waters has walked a fine line over the years of being viewed as corrupt and unethical, and while the endorsement-selling scheme may technically be legal in the eyes of the FEC, it surely doesn’t look good to average voters, most of whom will never see in their lifetime the amounts of money being thrown about by politicians and funneled into the pockets of their children.
Democrats always like to act like they are innocent and free of corruption, but the Democratic Party consists of some of the most corrupt politicians in the country. Instead of being accountable for their actions, they sell their endorsements and profit off of their false ideals.
