Yesterday, the Strafford County Democrats announced a special guest for their annual picnic. Their guest is none other than California Representative Maxine Waters. For some reason, the extremely corrupt Waters has somehow become a figurehead in the “Resist” movement, although it’s unclear why.
Their upcoming keynote speaker was announced via their Facebook page as well:
Waters is a 14 term United States Representative who has been labeled “The Most Corrupt Member of Congress” by CREW, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (a left-leaning organization). Why was Waters given such an horrible distinction? For her conduct during the financial crisis:
In the midst of a national financial catastrophe, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) used her position as a senior member of Congress and member of the House Financial Services Committee to prevail upon Treasury officials to meet with OneUnited Bank. She never disclosed that her husband held stock in the bank. This outrageous conduct has led Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) to include the congresswoman as one of the Most Corrupt Members of Congress.
Waters is also highlighted for the hundreds of thousands her campaign has been paying her own daughter. Waters’ daughter, Karen Waters, runs an organization for her mother called “Citizens for Waters.” Her daughter is responsible for mailers that the organization sends out and somehow has been paid almost $1 million to do so:
Karen Waters, the daughter of Rep. Waters, collected nearly $650,000 to date for running the operation for her mother’s campaign.
Karen is in charge of a “slate mailer” operation for Citizens for Waters, Rep. Waters’ federal campaign committee. Slate mailers, or endorsement mailers, involve a candidate or political group paying for the endorsement of another politician.
Karen Waters collected $65,287 throughout the 2016 cycle to run the slate mailer operation. Karen, along with her firm Progressive Connections, has received nearly $650,000 in payments from Citizens for Waters since 2006.
Waters is also well-known for her hypocrisy, which New Hampshire Democrats apparently love. Waters has been yelling “Impeach 45” at town hall events and rallies she’s attended despite no evidence for impeachment. She spoke a different tune when former President Bill Clinton was being impeached, due to actual evidence:

Another interesting fact about Waters is she lives in an over $4 million mansion that isn’t even in the poverty-stricken district she represents:
How can a member of Congress afford a $4.5 million Los Angeles mansion that takes up half a city block in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the country? Ask Maxine Waters.
Ask her about her other two homes as well, worth another approximate $850,000 to $1.1 million. Savvy real estate acquisitions for a public servant with a $174,000 House of Representatives salary. Whoops, almost left out Maxine’s time share property in Palm Springs, CA. Add that to her list.
Only one of her homes is located in the gritty LA congressional district which she was elected to represent. Her exclusive estate is miles north — well outside her congressional district — far away from LA’s street crime, murder and the folks she is supposed to help. Apparently, Maxine has addressed concerns about help. A private company maintains her property and impressive manicured landscaping at the mansion.
And what exactly has Waters done to improve the situation for her own constituents? Absolutely nothing:
Waters has spent 37 years in office — many of those years as head of the Congressional Black Caucus — promising to make life better for constituents in economically ravaged South Central Los Angeles. What do the denizens of her district have to show for it? Staggering levels of persistent unemployment, poverty, and gang violence as the 25th anniversary of the L.A. riots looms this coming weekend.
And what about the Congressional Black Caucus? It seems they are also on the corruptocrats’ list in Washington:
The Congressional Black Caucus PAC (CBC PAC) spends lavishly on upscale resorts and hotels, catering at exclusive restaurants, and on fundraising and Broadway tickets, according to a review of campaign finance records.
The CBC PAC, which is the fundraising arm of the Congressional Black Caucus, puts far more money towards administrative and fundraising purposes than it donates to candidates, the intended purpose of the political action committee.
The list of Maxine Waters’ corruption could go on and on and on. It’s amazing New Hampshire Democrats are bringing her to the state as somehow, someone, who represents or has the same beliefs as Granite Staters. Waters represents the extreme left-wing side of the Democrat Party that is filled with corruption and contempt for the voters they are supposed to represent. She is a wealthy, out-of-touch legislator who has done nothing to improve the lives of her constituents and refuses to accept that Hillary Clinton lost.
Maybe Waters is the new face of the Democrat Party after all.
