(CNN) - Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, who is under investigation by the House ethics committee, said Tuesday she has not been given due process and she "will not be a sacrificial lamb for anyone."
The congresswoman is alleged to have helped steer federal bailout money to a bank in which her husband had a financial stake.
In a radio interview with CNN contributor Roland S. Martin on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Waters said she is "not guilty of any violations" and she "want[s] to go to trial."
Which reminds me, whatever happenned to Palin's barrage of ethics violations while she was serving as the half-wit Governor of Alaska?
She should be ashamed and in jail. Why do the Democrats tolerate such corruption?!?
Crooked as can be! She will not be a sacrificial lamb, but it's OK for the taxpayers of America to be.
Hypocrisy knows no bounds!
Why is the ethics committee not going after Republicans – John Ensign??????????????????????????? His actions are criminal. You do not hear anything about him. What he did is far worse than anything she is accused of. I( believe David Vitters and his prostitutes is also an ethics violation or atleast a morals one.
Just another corrupt politician....
" I am not a crook" Yeah right Ms. Waters. It's time for all these corrupt individuals to be voted out of power. I was born and raised in CA and she is guilty like NY-Mr. Rangel. Don't try and play the race card either Ms. Waters, we all know your worthless and haven't done much for the state of CA but watch it being run into the ground!
What goes around, comes around! Putting oneself in a situation that benefits one of one's love ones, even though it is ethically wrong , one should have to ask too and pay the consequence's.
Sacrificial lamb, WTH. Go to trial and let the issues be addressed. Sounds as if she got caught with her hands in the cookie jar. Guess Charlie is innocent as well.
Good for you Senator...Fight on...Makes you wonder why it seems only the Democrats are under a microscope...
You can't tell me the GOP congress isn't full of 'real' ethics problems...
I can see November from my house.
In less than 3 months--the end of the lies, corruption, manipulation, back room deals, bribes/threats, socialism/marxism-–as the majority of Democrats are sent to the unemployment lines.
More like the crazy lady talking to herself in the back of the bus than a lamb. This corrupt bimbo needs to go, unfortunately her district, is heavily under the NEA influence so her constituents don't recognize how bad she really is. It is another "safe" district for Obozo in 2012 full of dope addicts and non working, non taxpaying Oprah watchers.
After hearing Waters' explaining her side of the story this morning on the radio – I believe they have NOTHING against her and she will remain in congress.
Waters should continue her fight to show her innocence because there is something 'cynical' behind all of this and this is only the beginning!!! More to come...
Dear Maxine, you are not a sacricial lamb, you are a crook.
Nope, not a sacrificial lamb. Just an old, tired Democrat whore who needs to be tossed out.
It is the time on our agenda to pass Senate and Congress Representatives Term limits....get rid of all old nasty junk, clean it in thorough way...god bless....America...God bless...
Either she used her office for personal gain or she didn't. Based on what I have read my tax dollars were used for her personal gain. If its true she should resign its as simple as that.
I am not aware of anyone wanting her to be a sacrificial lamb. She has been accused of commiting one or more crimes and she deserves/requires her day in court to determine her guilt or non-guilt.
What she is accused of is what every mother's child in Congress has done. It appears the Democratic party has been so stampeded by the right-wing barking heads and presstitutes accusing them of anti-white bias that they are engaging in anti-black bias. In short, this smells like another Sherrod affair.
BYE,BYE Maxine "Your Fired"!
I watch this with comical interest. She's so stubborn, so stupid and likely so very guilty.
She is the poster child for term limits.
a lamb.... not hardly.. more like a crooked old goat to me ,,, the mouth of south L.a. .. has been caught .. and here we go again its the race card ...this time aunt ester wont get away with cheating....
Clean up your act and go home or go home and clean up your act. Is there no shame in these dang politicians?
Oh please, she did something wrong. Her husband at the time of the meeting between the Treasury Dept. officials and One United Bank was a stockholder at that bank and the meeting and follow up activity were handled by her Congressional office on a matter that had to do with her personal life for her personal interest, personal benefit, personal gain. She had no business getting involved, using her position as her husband and she stood to gain money $$$$$$$ from such a meeting.
Shut up and go away liberal. The country is waking up and we don't want failed liberal government calling any shots in America anymore.
Where are the REAL democrats? You have been infiltrated by liberals.
She's not a sacrificial lamb, she is a corrupt politician; a crook.
Put her in jail.
