Recent filings from the Federal Election Commission show California congresswoman Maxine Waters paid her daughter over $100,000 from her official campaign funds for her “professional services” dating back to 2017.
According to the Daily Caller, the Trump-hating lawmaker used her organization Citizens for Waters to pay Karen Waters roughly $40,000 “this election cycle” and is expected to pay out an additional $65,000 for her help on a “slate mailer.”
“Rep. Waters’s campaign debt to her daughter was first noted in April 2017 by the Washington Free Beacon. The campaign had yet to report any payments on the debt at that time. Since then, the campaign has reported nine payments to Karen Waters ranging from $3,000-$7,000, according to FEC files reviewed by TheDCNF,” writes the DC.
Waters found herself in hot water in recent weeks, screaming “damn this President” and calling for his immediate removal after months of her now-infamous chant, “Impeach 45.”

FIREWORKS: Ben Carson SHUTS DOWN Maxine Waters Over Puerto Rican Recovery
Dr. Ben Carson shut-down hyper-liberal Congresswoman Maxine Waters on Thursday, after the left-wing lawmaker tried to convince the HUD Secretary to denounce President Trump’s hurricane recovery efforts in Puerto Rico.
Dr. Carson was speaking before the House Committee on Financial Services when the firebrand legislator pounced; pressing the Secretary and staunch Trump supporter over tweets the President made earlier this week.
“This morning, Trump threatened to abandon Puerto Rico recovery efforts. President Trump served notice Thursday that he may pull back federal relief workers from Puerto Rico, effectively threatening to abandon a US territory amid a staggering humanitarian crisis in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria […] Do you agree with the President?” asked Waters.
“I certainly agree that Puerto Rico is a very important territory, and the people from Puerto Rico have contributed greatly to the culture of America,” fired-back Carson.
“I’m not talking about that. What I’m talking about is these tweets,” she pressed.
“I have no intention of abandoning Puerto Rico, they’re a very important part of who we are,” said the Housing Secretary. “Our job is to make sure that we take care of a disaster that has occurred. Of course, it should not be abandoned.”
“There’s no question that there have been a lot of difficulties in Puerto Rico,” added Carson.

IRONY ALERT: Maxine Waters TRASHES ‘Con Man Don’ For Name-Calling
California Congresswoman Maxine Waters lashed-out at President Trump for ‘name calling’ over the weekend; ironically blasting ‘Con Man Don’ for using nicknames to describe his political opponents.
Waters was speaking with MSNBC’s Joy Reid on Sunday when she viciously slammed the Commander-in-Chief for repeatedly suggesting the far-left legislator possesses a ‘low-IQ.’

“He is expert at name-calling. I understand that in addition to continuing his name-calling of me, referring to my IQ and calling me ‘low-IQ’ and he continues to attack Elizabeth Warren and Nancy Pelosi,” said Waters.
“It seems that he’s identifying and picking on more and more women… This is not only typical of him, this is what this ‘Con man’ does,” she added.
“He can keep calling names; I’ve got plenty for him. Everybody knows he’s a con man, he’s been a con man all of his life. So, ‘Con Man Don’ is going to keep it up. If he’s coming for me I’m coming for him,” Maxine warned.
