When Donald Trump was president, one of his loudest critics was Maxine Waters. This Democrat representative was calling for his impeachment literally the day he entered office.
But this leftist has been facing some political troubles of her own. We learned that, during her re-election campaign, Waters paid her daughter a hefty sum for “organizing.”
That raised the eyebrows of more than a few folks. But apparently, Waters hasn’t stopped. She is still paying her daughter campaign cash.
From Fox News:
Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., paid her daughter another $24,000 in campaign cash during the most recent quarter, Federal Election Commission records reviewed by Fox News Digital show…
A “Citizens for Waters” campaign committee filing from earlier this week shows that the younger Waters received $24,000 from the committee between January and March 2022.
Slate-mailing is an uncommon practice in federal elections, where a consulting firm is hired to create a pamphlet of sorts that contains a list of candidates or policy measures, and advises voters how to cast their ballots.
It has been revealed that Maxine Waters paid her daughter $24,000 in campaign cash over the first quarter of 2022. She had previously hired her daughter for “slate-mailing” during the 2020 Election.
Why is she still paying her daughter for these services, two years later?
Slate-mailing is not a common practice used for federal elections. In fact, Waters was the only candidate in 2020 to hire someone to do it.
It is legal for candidates to hire family members for services, paying them with campaign cash. But it is generally frowned on by ethics experts because it looks bad to voters.
Yet Democrat representatives continue to do it, including Water’s party colleague Ilhan Omar, who paid her husband’s company almost $3 million.
Since 2003, Waters has paid her daughter’s firm over $1 million in services.
