A fitting replacement for the failed Hillary Clinton. And, it appears Waters is following in Clinton’s footsteps rather nicely considering she too has been accused of ethical violations.
Ironically, while President Trump has consistently been criticized for his so-called nepotism for having his daughter, Ivanka, as an adviser, leftists like Waters are touted as “dedicated to family.” Apparently she is, as Waters has dedicated a great deal of taxpayer money to financing her daughter’s lifestyle.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
The daughter of Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) was paid nearly $70,000 by her mother’s campaign during the 2016 election cycle. Karen Waters has been on the payroll of her mother’s campaign committee, Citizens for Waters, since 2006. She has pulled in more than $600,000 for her services since that time.

It is important to note that this isn’t the first-time Waters has been investigated for ethics violations. In 2010, the House Ethics committee charged Waters with three counts of violating House rules and the federal ethics code. The charges stemmed from her effort to arrange a 2008 meeting between Treasury officials and representatives with OneUnited bank.
Looks like Democrats’ new icon is just as corrupt as the last one.
And these are the people who consider President Trump to be immoral and unethical, and have repeatedly called for him to be impeached? They truly have perfected the art of “calling the kettle black.”
