A House panel is preparing to accuse Rep. Maxine Waters of at least one ethics violation in her efforts to help a bank with ties to her husband, and the longtime Los Angeles Democrat plans to fight the charges in a House trial, according to a source familiar with the case.
The allegations were presented Friday to Waters, the source said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is confidential.
As Inspector Clouseau said about the priceless Steinway he just destroyed: not any more.
The allegations come as Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.) faces a House trial on 13 ethics allegations, adding to the political troubles of Democrats confronted with a tough battle to hold onto their House majority in the November midterm election. Rangel, 80, and Waters, 71, are both high-profile, longtime members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
The racism is appalling!
I wonder if Waters is at the end of her career, like Obama says Rangel is.
P.S. I want Obama to end his career with dignity very soon as well. Or without. Either way is good.
