Summer Ethics like Christmas

It really has been like Christmas this summer. The primary season has been fun it looks like Charlie Rangel is going to have to walk away, the President is losing people and the unemployment is stuck. Can the new get any better for a November second mid-term elections? Yes it can the House ethics committee announced three counts of alleged ethics violations against California Democrat Maxine Waters, including a charge that she requested federal help for a bank where her husband owned stock and had served on its board. Do not let this shake your confidence in the system. Max gets the Maxine Waters is a 10-term representative from Los Angeles. She has denied any wrongdoing and had urged the committee to come forth with details of the charges so that she can defend herself in a trial expected to take place this fall. Her three counts is trumped by Rangel, 13. The best part is Waters chairs the Financial Services subcommittee on housing and community opportunity. It is amazing how the power and graft these people wheel blinds them to right and wrong. Waters contends that the National Bankers Association requested the meeting, which was held on behalf of the association, not OneUnited. When it all comes out the bottom line is OneUnited received $12 million in bailout money. Waters husband financial interest in OneUnited was about $175,000 which would have been worthless if OneUnited had not received federal funds. Waters has tried to say she has always been an advocate on behalf of minority banks, except OneUnited is not in California, so for her to allow them to benefit on her behalf is engaging in improper action or influenced.
