Rep. Waters charged on three counts

The House ethics committee on Monday outlined its charges against Rep. Maxine Waters, who is accused of helping a bank in which her husband owned stock secure federal bailout funds.

The committee charged the 10-term California Democrat with three counts of violating House rules and the federal ethics code in connection with her effort to arrange a 2008 meeting between Treasury officials and representatives with OneUnited bank. 

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.”

This was about 7 years ago. Old Slapsi Maxi is now exhibiting dementia comparable with Biden and Pelosi.  Still, I hope the Demmies keep her, or she starts a new black party.   Now, lefties sense the craziest amongst them as leaders.  Its almost devolutionary. 

TEN TERMS!!! .... 20 years being elected and re-elected even though she doesn't even live in the district she represents.  Okay, I'm not going there but you can sure bet your bottom dollar that she will.  The next step in that parade is that this action against Maxine will be solely and only based upon racism and is a racist move.  Any bets against that?  How about at 50:1 odds?  Somewhere in this she may even come up with saying that Trump engineered this because he was afraid of her running against him in 2020.

I'll have to look for the article, but I saw this back in the news for some reason.
