Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, one of the most outspoken members of the anti-Trump resistance in Congress, is facing fresh questions about a longstanding controversy regarding how her campaign raises money and how those funds have flowed to her daughter.
The California congresswoman has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars each election cycle from some of her states biggest politicians paying to be listed on her slate mailerssample ballots traditionally mailed out to about 200,000 voters in Los Angeles highlighting whom she supports.
Since 2004, the campaign in turn reportedly has paid $750,000 to the congresswomans daughter, Karen Waters, or her public relations firm Progressive Connections for help producing them.
A government watchdog in July filed the first of two complaints with the Federal Election Commission asking for a full audit of the Citizens for Waters campaign.

“Maxine Waters hit with FEC complaint over mailer money..”
When all else fails, play the race card.
Sidney Williams. He was “exonerated” by the House “Ethics” committee in 2012 during the Obama administration.
Obviously...THE FIX WAS IN. No doubt about it.
Thank you very much for that link.
If they can cash a $30,000 check for a book of stamps anything goes It’s the D,C, swamp.
"During the days immediately preceding the violence, RCP [The Revolutionary Communist Party] -- which maintained close ties to the L.A. gangs known as the Crips and the Bloods -- had circulated throughout South Central Los Angeles a leaflet featuring a statement by RCP National Spokesman Carl Dix, titled 'It's Right To Rebel' -- a quote popularized by Mao Zedong.
Encouraged by Dix, RCP activists helped lead the riots that would leave 58 people dead, more than 2,300 people injured, some 5,300 buildings burned, and $1 billion in property damaged or destroyed. On the ten-year anniversary of the rioting, RCP member Joseph Veale fondly recalled the violence as 'the most beautiful, the most heroic civil action in the history of the United States.'"
"NEVER FORGET that Maxine Waters embraced Damien Williams, the infamous thug who hurled a chunk of concrete at truck driver Reginald Denny and performed a victory dance over this innocent mans battered body.
Maxine Waters even visited Damien Williams mother to offer her support.
Williams was sent to prison on a single felony charge of mayhem, but when his accomplices got off, Waters joined in the celebration. Damien Williams was released a few years later and went on to [commit] murder... Also, no surprise, he was a member of the Crips."
Maxine Waters on the Los Angeles riots of 1992 (Rodney King riots):
"In defense of the people that looted stores and damaged property, [Maxine] Waters said 'If you call it a riot it sounds like it was just a bunch of crazy people who went out and did bad things for no reason. I maintain it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable. So I call it a rebellion.'
She also said it was 'a spontaneous reaction to a lot of injustice' and 'The anger in my district is righteous. I'm just as angry as they are'. "
Hmmm, where is the indictment of Maxine? Whats good for Hunter/Collins is good for Waters.
Unfortunately, we do.
