Charges against Maxine Waters by House Ethics Committee could result in removal from Congress

Let us remember the campaign of 2006 where the Democrats Mantra was that Republicans where “A Culture of Corruption” and the GOP operated under the “politics of personal destruction

The Newly elected House Speaker, Nancey Pelosi, said that she would preside over “the most ethical congress in history“.  She committed to Draining the Swamp because it must take “a woman to clean the House“.

Well the Democrats have been in power since January of 2007 and the “Swamp”  smells worse than ever before.

Two of the Parties Career politicians are about to go on trial for serious ethical violations that rise to potential removal from Congress.  Even so the word in the Beltway is that Congressman Rangle will be given the lowest form of discipline, a Reprimand.

Maxine Waters who pushed for a minority owned bank to receive bail-out money when her husband was a board member and a stick holder, could face a more stringent sentence.  Even so, Congresswoman Waters is acting as thou she had done nothing wrong.

I guess when ethical violations are the order of the day in Congress, it could look like she was doing nothing more than actions by other members of Congress.  Since Pelosis never has drained the swamp, everything smells bad.

Democrats are working had at down playing the actions of  Waters and Rangel as the trials are set just 45 days before the mid-term elections.  So far, thirteen Congressman have called for Rangel to step down.

The Washington Examiner puts it this way

The House ethics committee on Monday announced it has found Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., in violation of the rules of the House. The panel did not release the details of the violations, but most believe the charges relate to the 71-year-old lawmaker’s efforts to secure federal bailout funds for a bank tied to her husband. Waters has said she plans to fight the charges, which means the panel would have to hold a public hearing, much like a trial, to determine whether she is guilty of an violations.

Waters is the second Democrat in as many weeks to call for an ethics trial. Last week, an special House panel convened to outline 13 charges against Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., relating to unpaid taxes and using his office and power as a lawmaker to help big companies with tax legislation in exchange for large donations to a school named after him.
