We've Seen This Act Before: Maxine Waters Diverts Campaign Funds to Her Daughter

Swamp creatures enrich their spawn.


Politicians pulling maneuvers in their official or campaign capacities to benefit family members is generally illegal. That falls under conflict of interest statutes. But they often get away with it and authorities don't bother prosecuting them.


Slate Mailers


It seems like a no-brainer not to put your children on your payroll or pay their bills if you're running for office, doesn't it? Not for Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.). Waters uses campaign funds to make payments on debts to her daughter. She has made the payments for several years, for services her daughter rendered on her campaign involving endorsement mailers, known as "slate mailers." The controversial practice involves candidates paying Waters to send out mailers in support of them. The candidates pay Waters thousands of dollars for her endorsement. The vast majority contribute more than $2,700, the maximum individual contribution allowed by federal law to a candidate. Waters' daughter has made hundreds of thousands of dollars doing these slate mailers since 2006.

Although complaints have been filed against Waters over the practice, so far the FEC hasn't cracked down on her.

Although complaints have been filed against Waters over the practice, so far the FEC hasn't cracked down on her. John Wonderlich, executive director of the Sunlight Foundation, a nonpartisan watchdog group, said it could constitute unjust enrichment of a family member.

Complicating things is an FEC ruling from 2001 that says family members can be paid to work on political campaigns if they receive a fair-market salary. In this latest round of payments, Waters' daughter received $50,000 for work during the first quarter of 2019. That's a lot of money for just three months of work.



Joe Biden's Son


Joe Biden is currently under scrutiny for taking action that may have illegally benefited his son. Hunter Biden served on the board of Burisma Holdings. That is a Ukrainian energy firm. The country's top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, was looking into the company's owner. The elder Biden put pressure on Kiev to fire Shokin. So in March of 2016, the Ukrainian Parliament fired him. The new prosecutor cleared Burisma.

Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's attorneys, was so disgusted with the maneuver that he asked the new prosecutor, Yuriy Lutsenko, to re-open the probe. Lutsenko did so in March.

I wish these were unusual or exceptional cases but they aren't. The folks empowered to police these practices refuse to act so they will just continue on.

Nepotism is rampant in the Democratic party and has been going all the way back to the days of city/county bosses and "The Machine". Today there's just a whole lot of money involved and it breeds corruption.
