Earlier this year Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., told voters that she had big plans to put the heat on Wall Street in her position as chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee.
Then the cash started rolling in from the big banks and the mega-corporations — and Waters was more than happy to have her pockets lined.
TransUnion, Amazon, NASDAQ, Inc., Boeing, and many other PACs all contributed to Waters’ campaign this year. The California Democrat has racked up nearly a quarter million in donations for the first quarter of 2019 — almost all of it from megacorporations she’s overseeing.
Of course, the sum figure of $210,329 may not seem like much to a politician like Waters. She’s been accused of corruption for years and has been named one of the Most Corrupt Persons in Congress five times during her career. At some point, her ethics should be called into question.
The fact that the money is pouring into Waters’ campaign without so much as a mention in major newspapers is further proof of liberal bias in the media.
Not everyone is so lucky. Last year, federal authorities raided former Deputy Finance Chair of the Republican National Committee Elliott Broidy’s office to search for connections with President Donald Trump’s former business associates.
Investigators searched tooth and nail deep down following a Russian collusion conspiracy that ended up being no more than a joke.
In the end Broidy wasn’t even charged. The investigators found absolutely nothing.

That didn’t stop MSNBC and the mainstream media. Rachel Maddow devoted an entire segment this same time last year slamming Broidy for being involved with Trump.
Because of the many questions, Broidy stepped down from his position as deputy finance chair.
Meanwhile, Waters can pilfer money for her family and make shady deals with banks and she continually doesn’t have to answer for it — and there’s not a peep from the media

Waters owns a mansion in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in America — while representing one of the poorest.
Isn’t it about time the media took notice?
Or are they still too busy criticizing Trump’s tweets?
