A government watchdog agency filed an official complaint against firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters in recent days; claiming the left-wing legislator violated campaign finance rules in California.
According to Fox News, “California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is facing a new complaint about an obscure fundraising tactic that rakes in thousands from state politicians in exchange for being listed on her slate mailers — this time, involving supporters of a former Los Angeles mayor defeated in the June gubernatorial primary.”
The National Legal and Policy Center filed the complaint with the Federal Election Commission late last week.
“Since the commission has given federal campaigns broad discretion involving slate mailers it is imperative the issues cited in this complaint are fully investigated and all penalties and fines that may result from a finding that the Citizens for Waters campaign was in violation of the statutes cited should be applied in full,” read the complaint.

CHAOS IN CALI: State Official Tells Trump to ‘BE CAREFUL’ Around Maxine Waters
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra had some harsh words for President Trump just hours before he’s scheduled to touch down in the Golden State Monday; sarcastically warning the Commander-in-Chief to avoid Congresswoman Maxine Waters during his visit this week.
Becerra was speaking with MSNBC’s Andrew Mitchell when he was asked to comment on the President’s fiery speech over the weekend, where he called Maxine Waters a “low-IQ individual.”
“I also wanted to give you a moment to comment on your former Congressional colleague Maxine Waters after what the President said about Maxine Waters Saturday night in Pittsburgh,” said Mitchell.
“I think Donald Trump probably said that about 2,000 miles away from Maxine Waters because he’s probably too afraid to say it to her face,” fired-back Becerra. “I suspect that Donald Trump would be afraid to come up to her and actually say something like that to her.”
“Maxine can take care of herself, and I would urge Donald Trump to be careful if he ever found himself in a dark alley with Maxine Waters,” he added.

GLOVES OFF: Maxine Waters Says Schumer Will Do 'ANYTHING’ to 'Protect' Power
Firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters didn’t hold back when discussing Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi’s harsh criticism of her anti-Trump comments over the weekend; saying the leading Democrats were “willing to do anything” to preserve their power.
Waters was speaking with MSNBC’S Joy Reid when she was asked to comment on Schumer’s critique of her calls for the public harassment of senior Cabinet officials, saying her rhetoric was “Not American.”
“Well, I’m surprised that Chuck Schumer, you know, reached into the other House [of Congress] to do that. I’ve not quite seen that done before, but one of the things I recognize, being an elected official, is in the final analysis… leadership like Chuck Schumer will do anything that they think is necessary to protect their leadership,” said Waters.
