Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters is paying her daughter, Karen Waters ANOTHER $108,000 from campaign funds to send out 200,000 mailers. Karen Waters has collected approximately $650,000 to date for ‘running’ her mother’s mailer campaign.
Once Karen Waters collects the $108,000, she will have made over $750,000 for sending out mailers since 2006. Wow, I never knew sending out mailers was a 6-figure paying job and could make one a millionaire is such a short period of time!
Via Free Beacon:
Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) is slated to pay her daughter another $108,000 for running a lucrative campaign operation that pulls in hundreds of thousands of dollars each election cycle, FEC filings show.
Karen Waters, the daughter of Rep. Waters, collected nearly $650,000 to date for running the operation for her mother’s campaign.
Karen is in charge of a “slate mailer” operation for Citizens for Waters, Rep. Waters’ federal campaign committee. Slate mailers, or endorsement mailers, involve a candidate or political group paying for the endorsement of another politician.
The mailers are sent to nearly 200,000 residents in South Central Los Angeles, an area where Waters holds considerable clout. The mailers contain an “official sample ballot” and brief quotes from Waters about the candidates and measures that she supports.
During the 2016 election cycle, Waters’ campaign committee hauled in nearly $300,000 from more than 20 payments for slate mailer endorsements.
Karen Waters collected $65,287 throughout the 2016 cycle to run the slate mailer operation. Karen, along with her firm Progressive Connections, has received nearly $650,000 in payments from Citizens for Waters since 2006.
Waters’ most recent filings to the Federal Election Commission show that an outstanding balance of $108,952.15 is owed to Karen Waters. When Karen is paid the money that she is owed, she will have pocketed around $750,000 for running the mailers for the campaign since 2006.
I wonder if any business in the private sector pays $108,000 to send out 200,000 mailers. Maxine Waters and her family are life long grifters. She’s the female version of Al Sharpton. No one really knows how she got to where she did or what she has ever accomplished. She feeds at the government trough while spewing hatred day in and day out and apparently she’s the new face of the Democrat party.
