On the 7th Day of Corrupt Politicians, the Democrats sent to me………….7 Maxine Waters…….in a wig that only James Brown could love.
The Congresswoman from Los Angeles, Maxine Waters, is the Day 7 of Corrupt Democratic Politicians. She has been named to this position for doing what she does best, being corrupt.
Maxine Waters is so corrupt, she has been named the most corrupt politician in Washington an amazing five times, in 2005, 2006, 2009, 2011, and 2017. She was named Most Corrupt by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a George Soros funded organization.
Waters is the Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee. Presumably, one would think that this position would require someone of integrity, but not so with Waters.
She earned this position the old fashioned way, by being corrupt enough that she could stay in Congress for over three decades.
We begin our story with Waters and her daughter Karen.
Karen Waters is on the payroll of Citizens for Waters, and has been since 2006. She is in charge of a “slate mailer” operation for Citizens for Waters, Rep. Waters’ federal campaign committee. Slate mailers, or endorsement mailers, involve a candidate or political group paying for the endorsement of another politician. Since that time, Karen has received more than $650,000 for services rendered. For the 2020 election cycle, Karen is expected to receive another $105,000.
Candidates pay Citizens for Waters from their own political committees for Waters to endorse them. Kamala Harris has paid Citizens for Waters at least $63,000 for her endorsements. Gavin Newsom has paid the Waters campaign $45,000 for his “share” of slate mailers.
Maxine Waters is an Equal Opportunity helper. She helps her husband, Sidney Williams and herself also. During the Housing and Financial Crisis, a Massachusetts bank, One United Bank, was in danger of failing. Maxine rode her black horse to the rescue of the bank.
The bank CEO requested $50 million in TARP funds for the bank to rescue it from about $30 million in losses it had sustained in the crisis. Mad Maxine helped to set up a meeting with TARP officials and bank officers. The bank ultimately received $12 million in TARP funds.
Amazingly, Sidney Williams, the husband of Mad Maxine, was a board member of the bank. They also held shares in the bank which she was trying to get the TARP funds for, at least $250,000 in shares. And as if that was not enough, the bank’s executives had donated $12,500 to Mad Maxine’s campaign coffers.
This was not the only time that Mad Maxine helped out her husband. Mad Maxine arranged for Sidney to be appointed as an Ambassador to the Bahamas. His qualifications were without question. He once went to the Bahamas on vacation.
Mad Maxine has a well known reputation for working on race relations. The Rodney King riots in LA, she called a rebellion. The rebellion was “a spontaneous reaction to a lot of injustice and a lot of alienation and frustration.”
Mad Maxine really supports the Crips and Bloods. She finds that they provide “fearless support and understanding of young people and their efforts at self-expression.”
Mad Maxine is so enthralled of her constituents; she does not live among them. Instead, she lives in mostly white Hancock Park, several miles from her district. Yet she runs each time in a black district where she can keep getting elected.
Mad Maxine is also a famed internationalist. She has made frequent trips to Cuba to meet with Cop Killer, Joanne Chesimard, otherwise known as Black Panther Assata Shakur. Shakur lives in Cuba after escaping from prison where she was serving a life sentence.
Congratulations to Congresswoman Mad Maxine Waters. You have worked hard to earn your spot as Day 7 of the 12 Days of Corrupt Democratic Politicians. May you someday find yourself having to atone for those sins.
