Patterico's Pontifications


Maxine Waters to Face Ethics Charges

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 10:41 am


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.

  1. They’re already saying that the Ethics committee is “unfairly targeting” members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Never mind that there are actual violations, I was unfairly targeted!

    Oh, and Happy Birthday Pat!

  2. Well, there might be appoint to that: how many Congresscritters have been ethics-impaired, and not been investigated? In this most ethical Congress in history?

  3. Perhaps their constituents are FINALLY noticing how little all these clowns have stolen has made it back to their districts. I mean how long can you listen to complaints about earmarks and such before you realize these guys have had their face in the trough, but they never bring any of the bacon home.

  5. An eithics investigation of “No Justice-No Peace” Maxine?
    Who knew she had any?

  6. This is nothing more than bad farce – Rangel will get off with a wrist slap, and the other nutbag will get likewise. They always protect their own at the end, no? Unless they throw them under the bus, that is.

  8. With or without “dignity”. Either way, I don’t care so long as these aging sleazebags depart the banks of the Potomac. Oh, guess I shouldn’t use the word “banks” in the same sentence with Maxine!

  9. Nancy Pelosi lead a liberal media crazed about the Republican culture of corruption.

    Can’t we get the shoe on the other foot? Or is the media less interested when liberals lie, cheat and steal.

  10. Maxine cries “Racist” on good days. Having been gerrymandered into her district from a formerly competitive one, I know far too much about Maxine Waters. If there was a black Klan, she’d be the Imperial Wizard.

  11. I just want to hear her tape…
    She is comedy gold. And an embarrassment.
    Anyone who has voted for her recently is a knucklehead… but thanks.

    I’m conflicted. Maybe it’s my inner racist showing.

  13. Rep. Jefferson w/ cash in the freezer. Rangel writing tax laws that others have to obey, not him. Maxine Waters adding corruption to her repertoire of racism and bloviation. Wow…. Beginning to look like that congressional black caucus isn’t just assinine, it’s a walking RICO violation.

  14. …end of her career, like Obama says Rangel is.

    Obama’s statement said he is very troubled by Rangel’s tax problems and lack of transparency. Where should we begin to point out the hypocrisy of Obama’s statement? Would it be with tax cheat Tom Daschle? Or maybe tax cheat Geitner? Transparency? Hah! His entire regime has been about hiding the truth and lobbing out distractions.

    Either Rangel stays on with Pelosi saying how chastened he is, or he gets some cushy government job in Harlem where he can continue his ways in relative but wealthy obscurity.

  15. “we have been to the mountain top…???” hey Rangel and Maxine…this ain’t no dream. You are screwing up everything that ML King stood for. Resign !!!

  16. Maybe somebody should ask James Clyburn what happened to more than half the 50 mil for some self agrandizing honor to him at SC State college.

    Was that rascist?
