Maxine's Shady Campaign Scheme Revealed
 
Maxine Water's is being called out for what looks like a suspect scheme to enrich people around her. Reports indicate she is the only person on the federal level to run such a scheme.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

Rep. Maxine Waters's campaign has pulled in $56,000 this cycle through her "slate mailer" operation, filings show.

The mailers are sent out to more than 200,000 people in South Central Los Angeles and contain an "official sample ballot" and quotes from Waters on the candidates or measures she supports. In exchange for placement on the mailer, Waters's campaign committee receives a donation.

The payments to Citizens for Waters this cycle range from $2,000 to $12,000 and have come from a handful of California judicial candidates. Waters's campaign has collected the $56,000 from seven committees, filings show.

Citizens for Waters, Waters's campaign committee, runs the program. Karen, Maxine's daughter, has collected more than $750,000 in "professional fees" from the campaign since the practice first was given the green light by the Federal Election Commission (FEC).


Apparently, this has been OK'd by the FEC. But this practice seems shady.
