Maxine Waters’ Daughter Gets $240K From Her Mother’s Campaign

New records show that the daughter of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was given a whopping $240,000 from her mother’s campaign this last election cycle.

Federal Election Commission filings obtained by Fox News show that the Democrat lawmaker’s campaigns handed out the six figure payments to Karen Waters for the work that she allegedly did on her 82-year-old mother’s re-election campaign. These duties she carried out included” slate mailer management” and “GOTV,”  or likely “Get Out the Vote” services.

These payments appear to be similar to the ones that Karen received from her mother’s 2018 campaigns, when she was given “more than $200,000,” according to a November 2018 report by the Washington Free Beacon.

It was reported back in 2004 that members of Waters’ family had pocketed over $one million over eight years from businesses and campaigns related to Democratic representative. Waters managed to separate herself from any ties to these activities.

“They do their business and I do mine,” Waters said at the time. “We are not bad people.”

Waters represents California’s 43rd Congressional District in the Los Angeles area, and she has been in Congress since 1991. Prior to that, waters served in the California state Assembly.

Waters has made a name for herself over the past four years by blasting President Donald Trump in increasingly deranged ways every chance she gets. Instead of helping her district, Waters appears to prefer to spend her time giving television interviews in which she tries to go viral by hitting Trump with as many attacks as possible.

“We are emerging from the dark days of the Trump administration into the dawn of a new progressive America, where pro-consumer and pro-investor policies will always be first on the agenda,” Waters said last month as she celebrated Joe Biden’s alleged win over Trump in the election.

She also said that Biden’s apparent victory gave him a “mandate to reverse the harmful policies of the Trump administration.”

“I’m putting our witnesses on notice that I will be working with the Biden administration to roll back these rules,” Waters said.
