Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is probably on your radar recently due to her many public appearances in which she has called for her deranged Democrat supporters to violently attack members of the Trump cabinet and everyday Trump supporters. That incitement to violence has not gotten her into trouble yet, but she appears to have some different legal struggles blooming, due to some lucrative fundraising schemes.
Here’s how Waters’ scam works. Waters send out mailers to people in her district and she charges other Democrats running for office a hefty sum to have their names printed on sample ballots with her official endorsement. This works out great because Waters rakes in cash and the other Democrats can write off the purchase as a “campaign expenditure.”
But the scam doesn’t end there. Waters pays a PR firm to write her brochures and mail them out to voters. It just so happens that the owner of the PR firm is Maxine Waters’ daughter — and the Waters campaign has paid $750,000 for the services of her daughter’s company.
It may be shocking to learn, but the scam we’ve just described is all perfectly legal under campaign finance rules. However, it looks like the Democrat Party in California screwed up and that has, in turn, gotten Maxine Waters into trouble by extension.
