Maxine Waters is perhaps the looniest member of Congress. And that’s saying something. But just because she’s crazy as bat guano doesn’t mean she’s also not corrupt. Though you have to give her credit, the particular corruption we note here is completely legal. It’s only plain old campaign corruption. No big shakes. Giving out demerits for that in DC would be like giving out speeding tickets at the Indy 500.
Specifically, Waters is shoveling campaign cash to her daughter for useless services. This is after Waters’ embarrassing statements last month on the supposed horse terrorists of the Border Patrol. Mad Max is on a losing streak.

FNC: “House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has paid her daughter tens of thousands of dollars more in campaign funds this year. Campaign finance records reviewed by Fox News show that the congresswoman’s campaign has paid her daughter, Karen Waters, a cumulative $74,000 in donor cash through September.
The last quarter alone saw over $20,000 go to the younger Waters, which is nearly a third of the median American household income in 2020, according to the Census Bureau. Waters’ daughter has received over $1.1 million for her work on her mother’s campaigns since 2003. In fact, the 2020 election cycle alone saw $250,000 funneled to the House Financial Services Committee chairwoman’s daughter.”
And last month on the now debunked claim of the monster horsies, “I’m pissed,” said Waters. “I’m unhappy and I’m not just unhappy with the cowboys who were running down Haitians and using their reins to whip them. I’m [unhappy] with the administration. We are following the Trump policy … he is the one that does not follow the constitution and would not allow those seeking refuge to petition to get into the country. What the hell are we doing here? What we witnessed takes us back hundreds of years,” Waters continued. “What we witnessed was worse than what we witnessed in slavery … cowboys with their reins, again, whipping black people.”
Waters also questioned “who’s paying these cowboys to do this work,” saying they have “got to be gotten rid of.” She insisted the very mean use of quadropeds will “take us back to slavery days” and barked that kids who are “unfortunate to be in this situation must be allowed into the United States immediately.”
National Border Patrol Council Vice President Art Del Cueto responded and made Waters look like the fool she is. “They were not whipping anyone,” said Del Cueto. “They don’t carry whips. They don’t get assigned whips. What they do is a training technique that has been shown to them to make sure that no one takes over their horse. It was to protect the horse, to protect the rider, and to protect the individual that was trying to cause chaos and knock down that rider from that horse.”
