As if yesterday's video wasn't enough, California (D) Rep. Maxine Waters has made the papers today for her "help" in OneUnited Bank while being a member of the House Financial Services Committee. Get a load of this from today's Wall Street Journal:
Ms. Waters and her husband have both held financial stakes in the bank. Until recently, her husband was a director. At the same time, Ms. Waters has publicly boosted OneUnited's executives and criticized its government regulators during congressional hearings. Last fall, she helped secure the bank a meeting with Treasury officials.
Her involvement isn't new. Ms. Waters has detailed her financial ties in a series of federal disclosure forms and has been vocal in public in support of the bank. Those ties, however, have received little public attention. Nor is it well known how the influential lawmaker has over the years acted to support the bank and its executives.
Seriously, read the entire article. Maxine and her husband made quite a bit of $cash$ from being involved in this bank.
It is obvious that Maxine is more interested in her own pocketbook vs. the public's well being. She isn't acting on behalf of the people, but on behalf of her CASH.
So it begs the question: When are we going to wise up and start voting these folks out of office? (LISTEN UP CALIFORNIANS!) Better yet, when will they be tried for treason and fraud?
