I inserted the above vid so you guys can remember Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA). She and Rep Charlie Rangel (D-NY) are the two latest poster-children of Democrat corruption in DC. We’ve followed Rangel’s corruption lately, but Waters is next in line.
A second House Democrat, Rep. Maxine Waters of California, could face an ethics trial this fall, further complicating the election outlook for the party as it battles to retain its majority.People familiar with the investigation, who were not authorized to be quoted about charges before they are made public, say the allegations could be announced next week. The House ethics committee declined Friday to make any public statement on the matter.
Waters, 71, has been under investigation for a possible conflict of interest involving a bank that was seeking federal aid. Her husband owned stock in the bank and had served on its board……
Waters came under scrutiny after former Treasury Department officials said she helped arrange a meeting between regulators and executives at Boston-based OneUnited Bank without mentioning her husband’s financial ties to the institution.
Democrats mercilessly used US Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) and his scandal involving his pursuit of male Congressional pages as an issue in the 2006 Congressional elections. Nevermind that Rep. Eric Massa (D-NY) was chasing male aide ass. That was glossed over, and he resigned. Now Pelosi has Waters and Rangel. Nancy Pelosi swore that she would guide the most ethical congress in memory when she took over after those 2006 elections. She was going to “drain the swamps.” Yeah right! There is so much ethically wrong about her boys and girls in Congress. The question is – will the GOPers use this against her in the same manner that Foley was used against Republicans in 2006?
Congressional scandal has a major impact. Rep. Dan Rostenkowsi (D-IL) and his bunch were riddled with scandal and were exposed. That led to the 1994 GOP takeover in Congress. Foley’s indiscretion coupled with Bush fatigue led to the Dem takeover in 2006. Now we have the likes of Massa, Waters and Rangel (not to mention Sen. Roland Burris D-IL) on top of voter anger concerning Obama’s inept, criminal handling of this nation’s governance. This could be a tipping-point.
