Top House Democrats Maxine Waters and James Clyburn have continued to shell out tens of thousands of dollars in campaign funds to their family members ahead of the November midterm elections.
The re-election campaign for Waters, the U.S. House Financial Services Committee chairwoman, paid a total of $16,000 to the congresswoman's daughter in four separate payments in July and September of this year.
Karen Waters, who has been organizing slate-mailing operations to bolster her mother's re-election since 2003, and her company, Progressive Connections, have received more than $1.2 million from Waters’ campaign over the past nearly two decades.
Waters, D-Calif., was reportedly the only federal politician to use a slate-mailer operation during the 2020 general election. *** In 2004, the Los Angeles Times revealed that the Waters campaign had shelled out more than $1 million to other family members over the previous eight years. *** Clyburn, the House majority whip, also has a history of shelling out campaign money to his family members. His re-election campaign paid $7,500 for "office rent" in August to a company called 49 Magnolia Blossom LLC, according to FEC records.
According to South Carolina business records, Walter A. Reed, who is married to Clyburn's daughter, Jennifer Clyburn Reed, is the registered agent of the limited liability company. LittleSis lists her as the co-owner of the property investment company.
Clyburn has paid nearly $80,000 in campaign funds to the company since March 2020.
Clyburn's grandson, Walter A.C. Reed, who is managing Clyburn's re-election campaign, received five $3,500 payments between July and September, totaling $17,500, from Friends of Jim Clyburn. Reed also received a $500 "travel stipend" in August and a $223.87 payment for "vehicle repair" in September from the campaign. He has now received over $75,000 from the Clyburn campaign since last October. ***

I wonder how much Pelosi paid her “photographer” daughter?
Why not? Who is going to stop them?
I recall hearing about “Mad” Maxine’s inappropriate spending habits some ten years ago. Everybody in California who is paying attention already knows about her. So far, nothing is being done to address the issue or to stop her.
It’s past time to Arrest these Thieves
They don’t care. They’re in bulletproof districts so they know they can do practically anything and face no repercussions at the ballot box. Charlie Rangel, anyone?
Hey now we already all know the drill, as long as you are a Democrat you can commit ANY crime, at ANY time and get away with it as long as they have a D next to their name
The taxpayers paid for that.
The corrupt press doesn’t care because both these people have “D” by their names and both are members of a protected pity party victim group because of the color of their skin.
Mass arrests and treat them like the j6
Ain’t just Dems. What about Crenshaw?
He’s paid a company with less than 5 employees 100s of thousands of dollars. Oh yeah. His wife works there.
those wearing badges and others working in the legal system are also thieves, they are getting paid and not doing their jobs that they swore an oath to do.
Steve Martin in The Jerk. Suddenly uncovers the motive behind everyone’s corruption.
These people pervert the cause of public service. They represent the worst of the human race by taking advantage of others to enrich themselves and not get caught.
Due to our impotent “system of justice.”
Democrats best pass time greed and power.
