Maxine Waters’ campaign paid her daughter $240,000

December 5, 2020

While it may seem like a a paltry sum compared to the millions of dollars Ilhan Omar’s campaign paid to her husband, Maxine Waters’ campaign helped to enrich her daughter this election cycle to the tune of $240,000. Here is more:

The daughter of California Rep. Maxine Waters netted around $240,000 this past election cycle — from her mother’s own campaign, new records show.

The congresswoman’s campaigns shelled out payments to Karen Waters for work she did on her 82-year-old mother’s re-election campaign, including “slate mailer management” and “GOTV” — or likely “Get Out the Vote” services.

More than $212,600 in disbursements to Karen Waters are broken down into 26 entries such as “slate mailer management” fees, “office expenses” and “canvassing” between March 2019 and September 2020.

Another $28,150 in payments to Karen Waters occurred in October and November, for “GOTV” and “slate mailer management” fees — though one for $1,000 was simply labeled “Walker payments.”

The article does not say if these payments were illegal or if there is a complaint filed against the Waters campaign but taking money people donated to your campaign to enrich your family is certainly unethical, especially considering this is not the first time Maxine Waters has paid her daughter using campaign finances. Back in 2018 Maxine Waters was hit with an FEC campaign violation charge for paying the same daughter $750,000 in campaign money over the years. Old habits are hard to break, especially when you get away with them over and over again…

    This is legal under current election law. Bernie (Trotsky) Sanders did the same passing almost 6 million to Jane (no relation to Tarzan) over many election cycles. Hiring relatives and giving them commissions to do nonwork is legal because our governing elites have made it legal. This is what happens when there is no correlation between being a part of a governing elite and being part of a moral, intellectual or warrior elite. As Barry Sotero reminds us, We (meaning the Progressive New Left) are the people that we (the lumpenproletariat) have been waiting fore. Move over Apostles of Christ, Founding Fathers, Greatest Generation………………..

    As I always say, “One of the prerequisites for being a politician is being corrupt.” Sadly.

      Yep, when an honest person does happen to make it there he or she is blackballed and told to play the game or else.

    Only $240,000? Chump change. What a slouch. Waterworks needs to learn from the big boys how to take in the millions.

    These things ‘have been’ going on too long and now that its being ‘Exposed’ the Has-Beens’ – reward is GITMO or worse (what happens to Traitors and those who commit Treason).
    “I heard from a reliable source …” 🙂 their time is coming!
