Maxine Waters: The California congresswoman’s crime is clear. What’s holding up her prosecution?

Whatever happened to the Mad Maxine Waters ethics trial? Today’s column answers the question.

Confirmed: “Drain the swamp” is Washington-speak for “Let it fester.” While House ethics watchdogs dither, it’s shady business as usual for the ethics scandal–plagued Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.).

Last summer, the House Ethics Committee charged the entrenched California congresswoman with three violations related to her wheeling and dealing on behalf of minority-owned OneUnited Bank in Los Angeles. The panel accused Waters of bringing discredit to the House for using her influence to seek and secure taxpayer-subsidized special favors for the failing financial institution.

 

Eight months have passed since the House ethics panel charged Waters. But to date, there has been no action. No trial. No consequences.

Instead, Waters is busy ginning up opposition to GOP budget and entitlement reform, introducing new regulatory crackdowns on the financial industry, and waltzing into political rallies as Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” blares from the loudspeaker. The Swamp Queen has been playing her well-worn race card, stoking class warfare in the “community” and playing populist guardian of the “children, the poor, the disabled, and the elderly.”

Mad Maxine may have her “community” duped. But this corporate-welfare fixer is just another corruptocrat of a different stripe.
