If this isn't enough for the Dems right just before the biggest mid-term election ever, now comes Maxine Waters with her share of problems.
You know her. She's one of the idiots who in 2004 told us there was nothing wrong with Fannie and Freddie, the same idiot who openly stated she wanted to nationalize the oil industry. She is the same idiot that castigated Newt Gingrich on the House floor for his issues back in 1995.
But now she is about to enter the same world as Chuck Rangel. She is about to face an ethics trial for the usual offenses, padding a spouse's pocket -- which in this case, is as good as her own.
Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., plans to go through a House trial to contest charges of misusing her office, NBC News confirmed Friday night.
A House ethics subcommittee says Waters, 71, improperly intervened in 2008 with federal regulators to help get bailout funds for a bank that her husband owned stock in and on whose board he once served, said NBC and other media reports. Waters also once held stock in the bank.
This will be interesting, to say the least.
It seems that Rangel has been offered a deal to basically leave the House "with dignity". Dems want this badly, before his trial becomes an ad for GOP candidates everywhere in November. Think of it as another race baiting crook being thrown under the bus. (I would call him a sacrificial lamb, but I think a goat is more appropriate here.)
I say that if he wanted to leave with dignity, he should have left after his first term ..... long before he had the opportunity to steal millions from the American people. But he did not. He arrogantly held onto power and thumbed his nose at those who were appalled by his criminal deeds.
One can only wonder if the same thing will play out in the Waters situation.
Will they offer her up as a sacrificial goat, for the good of the Progressive movement?
Will she take the deal and run away from the cash cow that has enriched her and Rangel greatly, while at the same time demonizing the rich who actually produce something?
Or will both of them dig their heels in against the racist conspiracy to remove black voices from the Federal Legislature?
Personally, I hope they stay in and fight these racist charges. I hope they do it and drag every last damned Democrat down with them in the process. I want this to be shown on C-Span in September and October, while people are thinking about who they will vote for in November. I want this to be p[art of the narrative that brings down Pelosi, and reverts her back to being a shill on the hill WITHOUT a gavel.
I hope they leave a lasting impression of corrupt employees who must be taken from the place by security, while kicking, screaming, and threatening lawsuits all the way to their cars. I hope Fox is on that scene with cameras and live audio.
I hope, I hope, I hope. But I will not hold my breath in the process.
