The Washington Times reports:
A lobbyist known as one of
California's most successful power brokers
while serving as a legislative leader in that state paid Rep. Maxine
Waters' husband $15,000 in consulting fees at a time she was
co-sponsoring legislation that would help save the real-estate finance
business of one of the lobbyist's best-paying clients, records show.
It was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) who promised to "drain the swamp" of corruption. Apparently she overlooked this part of the bog. Waters, it should be noted, is no back-bencher. She already faces ethics accusations.
