the Hill ^ | 9-16-10 | Russell Berman

Three staffers working for embattled Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) were asked by security officers to leave an event in downtown Washington on Thursday after they tried to display large campaign signs just as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was about to speak.

The aides were holding lawn signs that defended Waters from the ethics charges she is facing in the House.

I’d pay to see those two hags scratching each others eyes out and pulling each other’s wigs off.

Congressional staffers protesting for their Congresswomen to avoid ethics charges?

How lame.

Waters needs to get some dignity, not to mention some degree of professionalism.

It ain’t about Nancy. It’s about black people, Waters said.

Its tells me that Waters isn’t for the all the people, she’s just for the Black people.

"Waters told The Hill afterward that the staffers had been displaying the signs at the annual legislative conference for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, which was held at the Washington convention center a few blocks away. “It ain’t about Nancy. It’s about black people,” Waters said.

The Democratic race-baiting agenda is backfiring right back in they're faces.

And they say the GOP has division?

Did the dems not want this played in elections?

Maxine Waters SOCIALISM Video

Or what?

Nancy Pelosi: “I see black people.”

“Waters said she was deploying campaign signs at events throughout the country to defend herself against charges that she improperly intervened to help a failing bank secure a meeting with Treasury officials even though her husband had owned stock in the company and previously served on its board. “These signs will show up wherever large numbers of African Americans gather,” Waters said.

A campaign aide to the congresswoman said the young men at the Pelosi event were staffers paid for the day. The aide said 40 to 50 yard signs were printed, in addition to 10,000 handouts. The aide said a similar presence would be made at other events between now and when Waters’s trial takes place, but that no formal plans had been made.

“It’s important to communicate our message,” the aide said.

The staffers who attended the Pelosi event declined to speak to The Hill, but before leaving one of the aides identified Waters as his aunt and said they were at the X Prize ceremony to see the cars on display. The Waters campaign aide said no family members were among the staffers sent to the CBC conference. Told that one of the staffers had identified her as his aunt, Waters shrugged and replied: “I’m everybody’s aunt.””

I’d laugh if this weren’t so pathetic. If I put on blackface could I make a few bucks as one of Maxine’s sign-toting “nephews”?

Conspiratorially-minded as I am, I would still like to know WHY the Dem leadership decided to suddenly revoke the decades-old immunity that black congresscritters used to have against this sort of petty crime.

From the article:
* A campaign aide to the congresswoman said the young men at the Pelosi event were staffers paid for the day.

* The aide said 40 to 50 yard signs were printed, in addition to 10,000 handouts.

I sure as hell hope she didn't use any of MY money paying for that. Disgusting.
