Report: Maxine Waters Used $1.2M in Campaign Funds to Pay Her Daughter

Data from the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) shows that House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) has used more than $1.2 million in campaign funds to pay her daughter.

FEC data shows that since 2003, Karen Waters has received more than $1.2 million in payments from her mother to her and her company, Progressive Connections, for campaign-related services.

The payment amounts range from hundreds of dollars to tens of thousands of dollars for things like “slate mailer management” fees, “campaign managing services,” and paying for a “band for [a] holiday event.”

Slate-mailing is an uncommon practice in federal elections, where a consulting firm is hired to create a pamphlet of sorts that contains a list of candidates or policy measures and advises voters on how to cast their ballots.

Rep. Waters was reportedly the only federal politician to use a slate-mailer operation during the 2020 general election.

Karen Waters isn’t the first family member to receive a hefty sum of campaign funds.

In 2004, a report from the Los Angeles Times revealed that the Waters campaign had paid more than $1 million to other family members over the previous eight years.

    Nothing is going to happen to her unless the republicans take both houses in the middle term election.
    She and others in government have been doing this for years and have not be called out for things like this..
    That is why we need tern limits now.

    Why is this woman not in prison? She has been as corrupt as anyone in politics, for many years. How many scandals? How long will the liberal press give her a pass? This woman is a disgrace to the country & has been for years. The House & Senate are full of those who feel they’re above the laws we lesser folks must obey. Jefferson said the best governed are the least governed, he also said every government should be overthrown every 20 years. She’s living proof!
