She has been the laughingstock of the internet for years and one that has been the butt of many jokes given her penchant for stupid remarks over the years that she might even qualify as suffering from dementia.
Yet California State Representative Maxine Waters, a Democrat representing California’s 43rd district and also one of the poorest areas in Southern California – sure has managed to amass quite a bit of wealth for herself over the 40-or-so years that she has worked as a civil servant paid by the tax dollars of hard-working Americans. This includes a $4.3 million mansion she owns that is located in Hancock Park, long considered to be one of L.A.’s most posh neighborhoods.
Far from the district that she supposedly represents – a high-crime, high-gang area of South Central L.A. in which she refuses to live – Waters’ 6,000 square foot luxury estate, located at 549 S. Lucerne Blvd., is nestled neatly between West Hollywood and Beverly Hills on a quiet, idyllic street. Just how is it that this race-baiting fraud was able to acquire this high degree of wealth making a “public servant” salary in the high rent district of Southern California? That is a good question, and one that people everywhere, including Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson, are now asking as Waters continues to draw attention to herself by spearheading empty charges to have President Trump impeached.
Kickbacks? Bribes? Money laundering? Who knows?
The inquiring minds of the American people want to know, although you will never hear the question asked of her by the mainstream media despite her endless appearances parade before them.
This loudmouthed hypocrite once named as the “Most Corrupt Member of Congress” on four separate occasions, passing a laughable 3 bills during her tenure since her election in 1990 is constantly barking about racism and income inequality, condemning the “haves” who she believes are keeping down the “have-nots.” Throughout Waters’ 27 years in Congress, she only managed to pass three bills: a Haiti relief bill, the renaming of a post office, and a modification of the national flood insurance program. She also received the dubious honor from Citizens For Responsibility and Ethics in Washington when they labeled her as the most corrupt member in Congress during the years of 2005, 2006, 2009, and 2011.
Yet she does not live anywhere near the poor, safely ensconced away from even her constituency, cocooned comfortably with the “haves” in one of the wealthiest areas of Los Angeles. Meanwhile, her actual district is comprised mostly of Hispanics and blacks, her Hancock Park neighborhood is almost completely white, with a little bit of Korean. Her neighborhood boasts a mere six percent residents that are African-American by race. All while Waters screeches to all and sundry about racial inequality.
If anyone needs to be investigated by the State Department for illicit behavior, that person is Waters. She clearly possesses more wealth than she ever could have earned on her own as an employee of taxpayers. This is why many people throughout Los Angeles refer to her as the “Poverty Pimp,” a title seen all across L.A. on posters that also bear a zombified image of Waters’ face.
“During her tenure, things have gotten much worse for her constituents,” wrote Jesse Lee Peterson for WND.com in an article entitled “Time to Show ‘Auntie Maxine’ the Door.” “Crime is out of control. Good jobs are gone. Public schools are failing to educate students. Illegal-alien gang members are driving black citizens out of their neighborhoods, yet Maxine is spending taxpayer funds on a witch hunt.”
A few years ago, Waters was charged by the House ethics committee for allegedly securing bailout funds for a bank in which her husband owned stock. She received three counts of violating House rules in addition to the federal ethics code. These charges were linked to her moves to establish a meeting between OneUnited bank representatives and Treasury officials in 2008. The committee stated that Waters’ moves to benefit OneUnited bank would serve as personally beneficial to her own interests due to her husband’s ownership of stock. The Congresswoman and her attorney filed a motion to have the charges dismissed, but unsurprisingly, the ethics panel denied it.
The only people that Waters cares about helping financially is herself and her family – not her constituents. According to reports, Waters’ daughter, Karen, has been paid nearly $750,000 since 2006 to run mailers urging Angelinos to vote for Waters every time she is up for reelection.
