Draining the Swamp: US Rep Maxine Waters (D-CA) Accused of Three Ethics Violations

 

Waters claims she was just helping a minority owned struggling bank was she has always done, never mind that her husband was a major share holder. Yep, no conflict of interest here.

More from Nancy Pelosi’s Democratc most ethical House of Representative’s ever … California Democrat Maxine Waters was charged with three ethics violation, although she vows to fight them and claims her innocense. The 10 page statement of alleged violations and other documents released Monday sets the stage for a trial by a subcommittee of the ethics panel later this fall.  Waters has requested a trial before this years midterm elections.

As Rep. Maxine Waters was warned against interceding on behalf of a bank with ties to her husband, her chief of staff, who is also her grandson, was “actively involved” in working to help the institution, according to a House Ethics Committee report released Monday that accuses the longtime Los Angeles political figure of three ethics violations.

Waters was accused of violating three rules — one that requires its members to “behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House,” a second that prohibits lawmakers from using their influence for personal benefit and a third forbidding the dispensing of favors.

Water’s and Charlie Rangel’s ethics hearings should do wonders for the Democrat brand and image heading into the 2010 midterm elections.

      We just didn’t understand Nancy Pelosi when she said she was going to “drain the swamp”. What she meant was that the corruption in Congress would get soooooo bad that any remaining water would be drained off so we could see the MUCK beneath.

      Drain the swamp? Hmmm. Nancy is draining a swamp huh? Maybe she just meant what’s left in her hot tub after she scrapes off the dirt when she bathes?

      As for being caught with 3, imagine how many more she was not caught at?

      Is Nancy P. the swamp monster?

      How about a new Rep. from Watts CA? So many could do a much better job than this FUBAR.

      Nancy’s got a long way to go before the swamp is drained, and that goes for both sides of the aisle.
      This is at least a start.

      One of the Banking/Holding firms that Watt’s husband did his unethical business transaction with was in Boston. These people have such a sense of entitlement, their acts are blatant and they still have the audacity to claim they are innocent of any wrongdoing. Please!
