Maxine Waters Already Paid Daughter $74,000 in Campaign Cash This Year

House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) — the congresswoman who encouraged violence ahead of Derek Chauvin’s trial — enjoys her life as a politician. She has greatly benefited from her career choice. And so has her family.

According to a Fox News report on Monday, campaign finance records show that Waters’ campaign paid her daughter, Karen Waters, a cumulative $74,000 in donor cash already this year. Karen received $20,000 from the campaign in the last quarter alone, nearly a third of the median American household income in 2020.

“In fact, the 2020 election cycle alone saw $250,000 funneled to the House Financial Services Committee chairwoman’s daughter,” Fox News writes.

Karen organized slate-mailing operations for her mother’s reelection. Since 2003, Karen has received over $1.1 million from her mother’s campaigns. So her work must be really important.

“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,” the report adds.

“Rep. Waters was reportedly the only federal politician to use a slate-mailer operation during the 2020 general election.”

In 2004, a Los Angeles Times report revealed that the Waters campaign had shelled out over $1 million to other family members over the previous eight years. It’s good to be a Waters.

Perhaps Waters gave the idea to Rep. Ilhan Omar? Remember, from January 2019 to July 22, 2020, Omar’s campaign paid $1.6 million to E Street Group LLC. Does that group matter? Only to Omar’s husband, who owns the company and received nearly $2 million from his wife’s campaign.

Politicians keep telling the country that they are smarter than average Americans. Well, politicians certainly have better personal financial strategies in place.

  1. The first lesson that every black Democrat politician learns immediately upon election is how to set-up bogus “non-profits” to funnel $$$$ to family members. It’s unofficially known as “Political Reparations” …
