Maxine Waters Busted Using Campaign Funds To Pay Family Debts

on

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) just got snared in a scheme where she is accused of exploiting campaign finance loopholes to funnel campaign funds to her daughter, Karen Waters.

Maxine Waters has been under fire for her questionable use of campaign funds for several months now. The first of several Federal Election Commission complaints were filed in July. The complaint claimed that Waters had broken campaign finance laws.

Since the complaint was filed, Waters has not changed or ended the practice. In recent months, Waters has paid at least $50,000 to her daughter.

A long history of questionable campaign finance practices

Fox News reported in August that Waters has been using campaign funds to pay her daughter for well over a decade.

Since 2004, the campaign in turn reportedly has paid $750,000 to the congresswoman’s daughter, Karen Waters, or her public relations firm Progressive Connections for help producing them.

Waters also came under fire in October of 2018 for exchanging spots on her slate mailers for thousands in cash from state politicians. This strategy allowed her to get around federal campaign contribution limits.

The Washington Free Beacon pointed out that slate mailers have fallen out of favor in recent years.

The use of slate mailers, which are a common practice in states such as California and Oregon, have come under heavy scrutiny.

Waters appears to be the only federal candidate to run a slate mailer operation from a federal committee, according to a search of the FEC’s database.

An FEC complaint was filed by The National Legal and Policy Center, but so far, Waters has yet to face any consequences for her shady dealings.

Nepotism at it’s finest

Karen Waters has benefited greatly from her Mother’s campaign dollars, according to FEC filings. Of the $182,323 owed in total debts by Maxine Waters’ campaign this quarter, $133,022.15 of that is earmarked to be paid to Karen.

This amount is in addition to another $108,000 that Karen was paid during the midterm election. Karen Waters is profiting heavily from Maxine Waters’ campaign donations.

So what is Karen Waters being paid for? She’s been tasked with overseeing Waters’ slate mailers operations.

Additionally, according to the Free Beacon, the payments made to Karen Waters were the most paid out by Maxine Waters’ campaign committee for any activity this quarter.

Maxine Waters has woven a tangled web of shady financial dealings, and it’s finally catching up with her. Waters has refused to address the accusations, but the FEC complaints are piling up.
