CRASH: Maxine Waters Is A Piece Of ...

Work.  Maxine Waters, along with Charles Rangel, is a long-tenured member of the Congress who now faces serious ethics charges.  These slugs are great...conclusive...arguments for term limits.

Michelle Malkin has done yeoman's work reporting on Waters...and the various other corruptocrats in Washington, DC...over the years.

Like Rangel, Waters will hold her seat in Congress until she croaks or gets tired of the "job"...or perhaps is forced out.  Her's is one of the safest of safe seats.  This is the argument for term limits that really can't be refuted.
Meredith McGehee of the Campaign Legal Center, a Washington ethics advocacy group, disputed the [Congressional Black] caucus' contention that the House ethics process is racially biased. Instead, she said, veteran lawmakers who have little to fear from their constituents are more likely to run afoul of ethical standards.
"I understand their concerns," McGehee said, "but it's what happens when you are in a safe district. You don't have a lot of competition."
Like Rangel, she sits on powerful committees in Congress, from which she aggressively mau-maus for the Collective.  She is less artful than Rangel, less smooth, much more outspoken in her love of hating liberty and free enterprise.

And, like Mr. Rangel, Waters is a thug, a hypocrite, a thief, and a liar.  Like Rangel, she preys on those she pretends to champion.  But, again like Rangel and others in the Congressional Black Caucus, she is using the corrupt RAAAAAACIST call to deflect attention from her crimes.
Between them, Rangel, 80, and Waters, 71, have served in the House for six decades and are leading members of the Congressional Black Caucus. The caucus has long complained that the House ethics process disproportionally targets African Americans in the chamber.

Since its 2009 inception, the Office of Congressional Ethics — an independent watchdog set up at the behest of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) — has investigated at least eight members of the black caucus.

Earlier this summer, Rep. Marcia L. Fudge (D- Ohio), a member of the caucus, introduced a resolution that would strip the ethics panel of some of its power and allow House members to keep unflattering reports from public view. The caucus has stood behind Rangel even as other House members have called for his resignation.
True racial equality will only come to America when every member of the House or Senate is held to the same ethical standard.  Now, the Congress flinches when it is forced to finally bring charges against its CBC members, knowing they WILL flop the race card in hopes they can continue their graft.


  1. True racial equality will only come to America when their are no segregated groups like the CBC. Of course, as long as there's a profit to be made finding racial inequality...

  2. Very true, John.

    The simple application of the hated "turn-around-test"...the Congressional White Caucus...shows the flaw. It is never denied, just excused.

  3. I'm curious, if ten members of the black caucus have been investigated since 2009, how many investigations have there been of those not part of the black caucus?

    From what I've been reading, it appears that Rangel is going to get off with a repremand. Doesn't seem like much of a deterant for unethical behavior.


  4. I guess the first question's answer that pops to mind is this: who cares? Provided that each ethics investigation was founded, that should not really be an issue, seems to me.

    The speculation in some press sectors is that Rangel gets a wrist-slap. That COULD be a form of jury tampering...or conditioning. I also see growing pressure for him to "retire". My crystal ball lacks resolution...

  5. Who would like to bet that once this latest bout of "swamp draining" is over, there will be a highly publicized corruption case/scandal involving a Republican that will take place right around October?

  6. I figure this is really about what we trial lawyers call "forum shopping".

    WAAAAYYYY better to be tried now than by a Republican-controlled Congress after the election!!!
