(CNN) – Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, who is under investigation by the House ethics committee, will personally plead her case to reporters in a 10 a.m. news conference on Capitol Hill Friday.
The 10-term congresswoman is alleged to have helped steer federal bailout money to a bank in which her husband had a financial stake.
In an appearance on the Tom Joyner Morning Show on Tuesday, Water said she has not been given due process and that she "will not be a sacrificial lamb for anyone."
She's going to plead her case to reporters??? What the ........ Oh well, I'm sure the press will find some way to blame it on Bush.
You and Rangle are a perfect pair.
Just resign and go on to your retirement that is better than most Americans get that the tax payers pay for.
Gosh, I kept asking TARP Management to fund my little bank. If I thought I could have gotten Representative Waters to twist a few arms at TARP Headquarters, I would be a banker today.
You go Maxine-–you and Charlie both---keep running your mouths.
This could not have happened at a better time.
Blago, Charlie, and Maxine-–should be paid by the RNC for their assistance in bringing down the socialist/marxist Obama Democrats.
What abnout Eric Cantor's wife? She sits on the board at some large bank and they got a load of stimulus money. Why doesn't the ethics committee g after him? This whole thing is an effort by the Republicans to make the Democrats look bad in the upcoming election. Well, this time it is about money, not SEX.
This greed runs rampant in congress today. Vote all the bum's out.
While Waters and Rangle rant and rave and show their disdain for ethics, President Bush is quietly greeting returning soldiers in Texas. Obama and the Dems constantly critize George Bush - this behavior is despicable as Reverend Sharpton would say -or if Harry Reid were to describe it in his skin tone language – two corrupt black politicians and a black President supporting them both -- and a former white President showing quiet respect fot eh military. There will be a choice at the mide terms : Democratic arrogance, corruption and greed versus GOP leadership. No contest
Where's the story on Vitter and Ensign???
These Congresswomen have their own definition of what ethics are and most people think Waters is not carrying a full bucket when it comes to honesty.
She needs to plead her case at trial, not in the press. She and her buddy Charlie both need to go.
TEN TERMS!!!!! Dump her:)
No making cases....whether Dem or Rep. Just send her home if found guilty...it does not matter, whether senator, or congress man...just pass Term Limits on Senate, and congress man...all representatives of people elects...okay..
Nancy Pelosi thinks shes running the "most ethical congress in history".........LOL.........how soon before anyone plays the race card on this one.
Guess what Waters, Kilpatrick, Conyers, Jefferson, and Rangel all have in common?
Yes they are all DEMoncats, Yes all liberals, yes all CBC members, yes all race baiters, yes all ethically devoid.
Make your voice heard Nov 2. Stem the red tide and save the USA from these types.
Put her in Jail.....what she did was corrupt and illegal and if a regular citizen did this they would be on trial. She needs to resign and face charges. I've been disappointed in both parties lately but obviously with the Dems in charge they've proven themselves to dominate the corruption head lines. She should be in jail, Rangel should be in jail, Tim Gietner should be in Jail, Rod Blagoiovich...etc etc. There is a growing Democratic culture of corruption.
I feel sure that a few Politicians in the house will be shaking in their Hose or socks [depending on their own behaviour] when representative Waters start her campaign with reporters this afternoon. Many if not all have someone or something in their closet that might blow them up.Integrity and honesty are 2 key words [politicians like to use when describing themselves but when the Daylight comes their darkest deeds MIGHT come out. Amerca is waiting to see who is next!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our elected representatives need to be held to a higher standard than they are now. I love Maxine but she needs to go. She needs to admit that what she did was wrong, she needs to bow out gracefully and she needs to show Americans that politicians can put the good of the nation ahead of self interest. Instead, she'll most likely fight on, make a mockery of the notion of an "ethical" congress and continue to behave as she always has. Its a shame but as the American electorate refuses to hold our leaders accountable,nothing will likely change.
Notice that the democrats do not try to change rules like the republicans did to protect their darling of dance, twinkletoes DeLay. Republican justice takes longer for the likes of Delay, Hastert, Ensign, Vitter, Hoekstra, King.
lets see what kind of excuse aunt ester comes up with,, i am sure its a race thing..... retire ol lady and go back to south la and watch sanford and sons reruns...
Unless she reveals evidence that has not yet been mentioned, I think it's time for this lady to retire. We have one political party that is completely corrupt, namely the Republicans.
Our other political party – the Democrats – are a grab bag of career politicians who blow with the wind, closet Conservatives, absolutely spineless cowards, and a few people who are trying to solve America's problems. The Democrats aren't much, God knows, but they're all we've got. Off with her head!
Yep, Democrat's the name, and I will take no blame!
Of course she did no wrong.....just like Rangel. At what point will this country return to taking responsibility for their actions? It's infected our society from the top down to those on welfare who blame everyone one else for their plight.
According to maxine waters, her financial misconduct is a result of racism. Go figure.
Another crooked democrat. How surprising....
America needs Term limits
