The Washington Free Beacon is reporting that Congresswoman Maxine Waters daughter just netted $200,000 from her mom’s campaign funds:
The daughter of Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) will collect more than $200,000 from her mother’s campaign after its debts are paid off for leading a lucrative slate mailer operation, Federal Election Commission filings show.
Karen Waters has pulled in hefty payments from the campaign to run a slate mailer operation after the FEC issued an advisory opinion in October 2004 allowing Waters to run the operation from the Citizens for Waters, her mother’s campaign committee.
Prior to 2006, Karen ran the arrangement through LA Vote, a state committee in California.
Karen is in charge of slate mailers, or endorsement mailers, in which candidates pay Rep. Waters’s campaign to appear on mailers that are sent to more than 200,000 residents in the South Central Los Angeles area, where Waters holds a good amount of clout.
The mailers contain a sample ballot and quotes of support from Waters.
As of the end of the 2016 election cycle, Karen and her firm Progressive Connections had been paid more than $600,000 in campaign funds from the committee for the running the slate mailers since 2006, the Washington Free Beacon previously reported.
Karen received another $108,862 in payments from her mother’s campaign committee during the 2018 election cycle, FEC filings show.
The committee additionally reported that it still owes $94,000 to Karen.
Once the debt is paid off, Karen will have received more than $200,000 in payments from the committee as marked at the end of the midterm cycle.
While this type of arrangement may be legal only a Democrat could get away with it.
Can you imagine the uproar if any of President Trump’s children had been paid to run parts of their father’s campaign?
The outrage would have been 24/7!
