Maxine Waters’ Career May Be Finished — New Scandal Revealed

Published

on

California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is certainly no stranger to controversy and scandal. In fact, she wallows in it. Waters strikes me as someone who believes she is above the law and can get away with whatever she wants. It’s one of the reasons she is seen as one of the most corrupt politicians in Congress.

A new complaint has been filed against Waters and it and the new unfolding scandal surrounding the complaint has the potential to finish off her career. The complaint involves an obscure fundraising tactic that has raked in thousands of dollars from state politicians in exchange for being listed on her slate mailers. This go-around, it involves supporters of a former Los Angeles mayor defeated in the June gubernatorial primary.

A conservative watchdog group named the National Legal and Policy Center is the one who filed the complaint with the Federal Election Commission against Waters, her campaign and a pro-charter school group called Families and Teachers for Antonio Villaraigosa — which backed the former Democratic mayor of Los Angeles.

This is very serious and could in the end not only end Waters’ career… it could also entail jail time. She has the best attorneys money can buy and it looks like she may need them.

From Fox News:

“The pro-Villaraigosa group paid $25,000 to the Citizens for Waters Committee on May 25 to include Villaraigosa in her slate mailer, according to the complaint. FEC guidelines, however, say only a candidate’s committee can pay for the mailers — sample ballots traditionally mailed out to about 200,000 voters in Los Angeles highlighting whom Waters supports.

“Waters’ mailers have faced scrutiny since 2010 because the campaign, since 2004, has paid her daughter Karen Waters, or her public relations firm Progressive Connections, to produce, print and mail the sample ballots.

“Legally, candidates are paying a reimbursement for the slate mailer, rather than buying an endorsement. But it’s difficult to prove whether the Waters endorsement comes as a result of the payment or if already endorsed candidates are paying for their share, Adav Noti, a former FEC assistant general counsel, recently told Fox News while explaining the peculiar process.

“The mailers also effectively provide a loophole to get around federal campaign contribution limits. The watchdog group’s FEC complaint, the second against Waters since July, is asking for a full audit of the congresswoman’s campaign.

“Since the commission has given federal campaigns broad discretion involving slate mailers it is imperative the issues cited in this complaint are fully investigated and all penalties and fines that may result from a finding that the Citizens for Waters campaign was in violation of the statutes cited should be applied in full,” the complaint filed Thursday morning says.

“Neither Waters’ congressional office nor her campaign responded to phone and email inquiries for this report.”

This has nothing to do with Waters vicious attacks on President Trump. This scandal has been brewing for her for years. It was just a matter of time before the law started knocking on her proverbial door. However, it won’t slow her down from calling for Trump’s impeachment.

Villaraigosa ran as a moderate Democrat in the gubernatorial jungle primary. This means that the two candidates that get the most votes will face off in the general election, regardless of what party they belong to. Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and Republican businessman John Cox won that primary so Villaraigosa is out of the running.

A politician out of office is even more vulnerable to legal action as their misdeeds have a way of coming out much more easily.

Charter school advocates formed a group that spent millions of dollars on TV ads pushing for Villaraigosa. Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a billionaire, and Netflix CEO Reed Hastings were among those who bankrolled Families and Teachers for Antonio Villaraigosa. All uber leftists.

“This liberal lioness who is for teacher unions and public education didn’t mind taking money from charter school advocates,” Tom Anderson, the director of the government integrity project at the National Legal and Policy Center, told Fox News. “This is clearly not only enriching Maxine Waters and her family but what better way for tech billionaires and Michael Bloomberg to push against the teacher unions?”

As soon as the primary was over, Newsom aligned himself with Waters. Newsom’s campaign paid $27,000 to the Waters campaign on June 5, primary day, to be featured on her slate mailers. Because it came from the candidate’s committee, that payment was supposedly legal. Waters, 79, will face Republican Omar Navarro, 29, a small business owner in the election.

More from Fox News:

“Federal law technically limits individual campaign contributions to $2,700 to a candidate’s committee and $5,000 to a political action committee. But the mailers are treated differently. A 2004 FEC advisory opinion, signed by Democratic FEC Commissioner Ellen Weintraub, set guidelines for how those mailers can be funded.

“A 2004 FEC advisory opinion described the pamphlets as follows: “The brochure will feature a prominent picture or likeness of Representative Waters on the front page. It will be promoted as Representative Waters’ ‘official sample ballot’ and will contain brief quotes, which convey her opinions and endorsements of the federal and non-federal candidates listed.”

“The FEC opinion stated that the payments from other candidates “would not constitute support of, or in-kind contributions to, any federal candidate appearing in the brochure, so long as the authorized committee of that federal candidate reimburses the Waters Committee.”

“The watchdog group’s FEC complaint stressed the parameters of the 2004 decision.

“In the advisory opinion the Commission clearly states that payments made to the Citizens of Waters campaign by candidates is a reimbursement to the Waters campaign for costs related to the slate mailer the campaign creates for elections,” the complaint continues. “These reimbursements allow candidates to exceed campaign finance contribution limits. Since this money did not come from the candidate, Antonio Villaraigosa, or any campaign or agent of Mr. Villaraigosa this payment cannot be considered a reimbursement by the candidate, candidate campaign or agent of the candidate to the Citizens for Waters campaign committee.’”

One can only hope that Navarro wins that race against Waters and I think he stands a good chance of doing just that. Waters is about to be embroiled in a legal mess that will force her to fight for her literal life. That’s a tall order for a 79-year-old radical.

Trump Admin Considers Narrowing Legal Definition Of Gender – Corey Booker In Trouble??

Published

on

...

* By

According to the New York Times, Trump’s administration may redefine the definition of gender, much to the horror of NPCs everywhere.

Seeing as Dem Senator Corey Booker was just accused of sexual assault by a gay man, it’s possible he won’t be able to claim he’s transgender if he comes out of the closet in the future.

The Daily Wire is reporting:

“Judging from the breathless headline in the New York Times, President Trump’s administration is going all out to obliterate transgenderism.

“Trump Administration Eyes Defining Transgender Out of Existence,” said the Sunday headline.

“The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law,” said the story’s lead.

The piece goes on to say that a series of decisions by the administration of Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, “loosened the legal concept of gender in federal programs,” which led to “fights over bathrooms, dormitories, single-sex programs and other arenas where gender was once seen as a simple concept.”

So, in an attempt to clarify the law — and to ease the “fights” — the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is seeking to define sex under Title IX, which is the federal civil rights law that outlaws gender discrimination in education programs.

“The department argued in its memo that key government agencies needed to adopt an explicit and uniform definition of gender as determined ‘on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable.’ The agency’s proposed definition would define sex as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with, according to a draft reviewed by The Times. Any dispute about one’s sex would have to be clarified using genetic testing,” writes the Times.

In its memo, HHS said “Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth. The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence.”

HHS is expected to present the proposed guidance of to the Justice Department by the end of this year.”

VIDEO: GOP’s New Election Ad Unloads On Democrat Party’s Increasing Threats, Attacks and Mob Violence

Democrats have become increasingly violent since the 2016 election. It doesn’t look like they will let up any time soon.

That bodes well for Republicans, though, as many believe that violence from the left is part of the reason Trump was elected.

Finally the GOP is showcasing Dem violence to the country. Make sure everyone sees this!

The Daily Wire reported:

“The Republican National Committee released a new campaign ad on Friday that highlighted the political violence that has occurred against Republicans in recent weeks; the ad comes just as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi endorsed “collateral damage” against conservatives.

The ad comes after several violent attacks have been launched against Republicans in recent days, including:

Suspicious envelope causes ricin scare at Sen. Collins’ home

Dem Operative For Soros-Funded Group Attacked Female GOP Campaign Manager

Two Republican Candidates Attacked While Campaigning In Minnesota

Wyoming GOP Office Set On Fire Less Than Two Days After Opening — Police Say It Was Intentional

Sen. Cory Gardner’s Wife Allegedly Received ‘Beheading’ Video Prior To Kavanaugh Vote

Pelosi, a California Democrat, said earlier this week that if collateral damage happens against those who disagree with the political agenda of the Democratic Party, then “so be it.”

“We have to have total clarity about what we do when it comes to everything — a woman’s right to choose, gay marriage … whether it’s about immigration, whether it’s about gun safety, whether it’s about climate …” Pelosi said earlier this week. “I think that we owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose.”

The Gateway Pundit added:

“The latest Republican Party midterm ad highlights the increasing violence of the Democrat Party.

Democrats decided this year to forego a platform and just threaten, harass, beat and vandalize Republican candidates and property instead.

This ad mentions JUST A FEW of the violent attacks on Republican lawmakers this year. Of course, NOT ONE Democrat leader has called on party faithful to stop their violence. Just this weekend Democrats harassed and threatened Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell and his wife Elaine Chou while they were eating out.

Democrats need to call off their thugs before someone gets seriously hurt or killed!”
