While Democrats like Congresswoman Maxine Waters slam President Trump for hiring his Wharton-educated daughter Ivanka as an unpaid assistant, her own daughter has raked in more than $750,000 working for Maxine’s campaign. Which runs on public donations.
Karen Waters has been on the payroll of her mother’s campaign committee, Citizens for Waters, since 2006. Karen oversees a gravy-chain operation called “slate mailers,” also known as “endorsement mailers.”
The slate mailer operation is a lucrative enterprise where an established politician like Maxine Waters gets paid to endorse a political candidate.
The mailers are sent to 200,000 residents in South Central Los Angeles, a district Waters represents. FEC (Federal Election Commission) filings show that Maxine Waters’ campaign scored almost $300,000 from these slate-mailer endorsements in 2016, the Free Beacon reported.
Karen Waters was paid $70,000 to run her mom’s slate-mailer operation last year.
New FEC filings show that Maxine Waters is set to pay her daughter another $108,000 for her services. Once this payment is made, Karen will have hauled in $750,000 for running her mom’s slate-mailer campaign since 2006.
Congresswoman Waters has hypocritically trashed President Trump for being “corrupt” while she has been using her political position to help her daughter and husband pocket hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years. Psychiatrists call this “psychological projection.”
Despite 13 terms in Congress, Waters only recently gained a national profile, after vowing to obstruct Trump and promising to impeach him, even though Waters’ pal Nancy Pelosi conceded that the president has committed no impeachable offenses.
Maxine Waters’ career highlights include being rated one of the “most corrupt” members of Congress in 2005, 2006, and 2008 by the George Soros-funded liberal watchdog CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington).
In 2008, Waters was charged with three counts of ethical violations after allegedly helping OneUnited Bank secure $12 million in federal bailout funds while hiding the fact that her husband owned stock in the bank.
In February, a blithering Waters, 78, claimed Vladimir Putin had invaded Korea and she couldn’t remember what Aleppo was (it’s the war-torn city in Syria that’s the epicenter of the refugee crisis):
