Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has repeatedly been named “The Most Corrupt Politician of the Year” by the left-leaning Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington throughout her career.
But don’t mention “personal benefits” to her face, or you’ll get an earful.

Waters lost her cool during yet another round of voting for Speaker of the House of Representatives when Rep. Matt Rosendale, R-Mont., named Waters during a speech.
“Last summer we began to negotiate, a group of us in good faith, a list of changes, amendments, to the rules of this body,” Rosendale said. “Not to empower ourselves, not to bring personal benefit to ourselves, but to empower you and you and you, Maxine, and you, and you, and everyone sitting in this chamber equally.”
“There’s no rules, I did not use anyone’s name… Excuse me, Maxine,” he said.
It was too late. When it was Waters’ turn to vote for House speaker, she took the opportunity to attack Rosendale.
“This is my ninth vote for Hakeem Jefferies,” Waters said, and then pointed at a group of GOP Congressmen sitting behind her.
“Matt Rosendale, get it together!” she shouted, pointing her finger and saying something unintelligible on the video.
Critics said she “just went crazy.” Rosendale’s Republican allies drown out Waters quickly, shouting: “Order! Order! Order!”
