Maxine Waters Caught Funneling Large Sum of Cash to Her Daughter in Campaign Funds

Hunter Biden isn’t the only child of a Democrat gaining significant wealth as a result of his father’s role in government.

Democrat Maxine Waters of California has paid her daughter over $1 million for working on her campaigns over the years, Fox News reports.

Waters, who serves as chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, has paid her daughter tens of thousands of dollars more in campaign funds this year.

Between January and September of 2021, Waters has paid her daughter, Karen Waters, a total of $74,000 in donor cash.

The last quarter alone saw over $20,000 go to her daughter.

Fox News notes this amount is nearly a third of the median American household income in 2020, according to the Census Bureau.

Campaign finance records obtained by Fox News confirmed this information.

Waters has not responded to requests for comment on the payments.

More from Fox News:

In fact, the 2020 election cycle alone saw $250,000 funneled to the House Financial Services Committee chairwoman’s daughter.

The daughter of the California Democrat organized slate-mailing operations to bolster her mother’s reelection.

Slate-mailing is an uncommon practice in federal elections, where a consulting firm is hired to create a pamphlet of sorts that contains a list of candidates or policy measures, and advises voters how to cast their ballots.

Rep. Waters was reportedly the only federal politician to use a slate-mailer operation during the 2020 general election.

Karen Waters isn’t the only member of the family to cash in on Rep. Waters’ career over the years.

In 2004, the Los Angeles Times revealed that the Waters campaign had shelled out over $1 million to other family members over the previous eight years.
