Democrat Caught Illegally Paying $600K Of Campaign Funds To Daughter

Fact checked
Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters has been caught siphoning off hundreds of thousands of dollars in funds and paying them to her daughter.

Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has been caught siphoning off hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign funds and depositing them in her daughter’s bank account.

Karen Waters, the daughter of Rep. Maxine Waters, Karen pulled in $65,287 overseeing the slate mailer operation in 2016, making her the third-largest recipient of Waters campaign funds that cycle. But it doesn’t stop there. Karen, together with her firm Progressive Connections, has received over $600,000 in payments from the Waters campaign since 2006.

This isn’t the first time that the Democratic Congresswoman has gotten herself into ethical hot water. In fact, it happens so often that two different government watchdogs have tabbed her as one of the nation’s most corrupt politicians. (See here and here).

In 2010, Waters was brought up on three separate corruption charges by her Democrat colleagues in the House, even after Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) warned her against getting involved in advocating for a bank in which she had financial interest.

The panel said Waters, who sits on the Financial Services Committee, broke a House rule requiring members to behave in a way that reflects “creditably” on the chamber. The committee said that by trying to assist OneUnited, she stood to benefit directly, because her husband owned a sizable amount of stock that would have been “worthless” if the bank failed.

The committee also accused Waters of violating the “spirit” of a House rule prohibiting lawmakers from using their positions for financial gain, as well as a government ethics statute banning the dispensing of “special favors.”

Draining the swamp

The news comes after former Hillary Clinton State Department employee Candace Marie Claiborne became the first Clinton-era State Department employee indicted on treason charges, leading many to believe the swamp has begun to be drained.

A federal grand jury indicted Claiborne for conspiring to defraud the U.S. government, concealing contact with foreign spies, obstructing an official proceeding, and making false statements to the FBI, according to a Department of Justice press release.

The bill of charges contains numerous felonies and Claiborne, 60, is facing spending the rest of her life behind bars, as prosecutors warn she is “the first of many” corrupt Clinton-era State Department employees that will be bought to justice by a reinvigorated DOJ.

  1. Maxine Waters looks exactly what a thief looks like, and without any shame. Her free life should be over now while wearing an orange jumpsuit. Her daughter must return ALL the money and pay a huge fine for accepting stolen funds- this is disgusting !!!!

    • You think thieves ‘look’ a certain way? That’s a childish concept, thinking you know what a thief looks like.

      • Yes. especially when the Rat gets caught! So You’re reply to monica is stupid. She’s a crook, so that’s one “look” we certainly can !

      • Your just pissed another Crooked Democrat got caught. Oh my!!! No Loretta Lynch to obstruct justice, this time. Could not have happened to a better person. Hillary and Loretta are next. Then we move on to get Chucky, Nancy and Eric Holder. Draining the swap, one crook at a time. Better take notice Shelia Jackson Lee and little Debbie. You are all in the sites now.

  2. ” Corruption is endemic everywhere in America, where ordinary people are exploited, persecuted, imprisoned, murdered, or disappeared for daring to challenge the ruthlessly corrupt power responsibly, where profits are privatized while ordinary people bear the burden of high unemployment, impoverishment and loss of fundamental freedoms.” Stephen Lendman

    • None of the politicians work. All they do is argue all day, on the days they’re actually in session, and vacation the other 250 days of the year. Disgusting.

  3. Not going to say she’s right or wrong, but i think people on both sides would be shocked at how much nepotism and conflicts of interest are in poltics.

  4. Need to understand this. She is on Financial Svces Committee when Barney Frank was there and in 2010 I thought was investigated because her husband has sizeable stock in OneBank financial institution. What happened? And Waters still on the Committee? What kind of standards are there that she is still on the committee? OMG Corruption run amuck.

  5. Another one with NO ethics that should be in prison, but the Democrat voters keep voting for her.

  6. Just another crooked politician who thinks they are above the law. This sleaze bag will go unprosecuted………………..

  7. Well you said President Trump was not your President well you are not a Congressmen. You are a peace of carp that needs to be locked up. BoZo I hope you go to hell you piece of black shit.

  8. Reading that about Maxine, the devious, ignorant, corrupt, old lying baglet does not surprise me one bit.
    We’ve already had to gut what Hildabeast did w/her secret server, we had to stomach Bubba Bill having adulterous sex in the Oval Office, then the Media brushes that under the rug & he was elected again. It’s so gross how corrupt our government has became. The Clinton Machine turned every table over that they could. I know they will burn in hell.
    DemoNazis need to pack it up and go home. There will not be a DEMONCRAT as President for DECADES to come. As a matter of fact, within the next couple years we will have them ALL VOTED OUT.
    I will not vote Dem ever ever again and I voted Repub for the first time in my life this Election!!
    DEMS ARE DONE. They dug their own grave & are now in the process of burying themselves!!

    • While I want this to happen with all my heart, along with HRC and Billy Boy and the entire Clinton Cabal, I really doubt any of them are going to jail.
