REPORT: Maxine Waters' Daughter RECEIVES $100k from Campaign Finances

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.21.18

Recent filings from the Federal Election Commission show California congresswoman Maxine Waters paid her daughter over $100,000 from her official campaign funds for her “professional services” dating back to 2017.

According to the Daily Caller, the Trump-hating lawmaker used her organization Citizens for Waters to pay Karen Waters roughly $40,000 “this election cycle” and is expected to pay out an additional $65,000 for her help on a “slate mailer.”

“Rep. Waters’s campaign debt to her daughter was first noted in April 2017 by the Washington Free Beacon. The campaign had yet to report any payments on the debt at that time. Since then, the campaign has reported nine payments to Karen Waters ranging from $3,000-$7,000, according to FEC files reviewed by TheDCNF,” writes the DC.

Waters found herself in hot water in recent weeks, screaming “damn this President” and calling for his immediate removal after months of her now-infamous chant, “Impeach 45.”
