Maxine Waters's Aides Are Expelled From Event of Speaker Pelosi's

Maxine Waters's aides are expelled from event of Speaker Pelosi's

The Hill

Three staffers working for embattled Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) were asked by security officers to leave an event in downtown Washington on Thursday after they tried to display large campaign signs just as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was about to speak.

The aides were holding lawn signs that defended Waters from the ethics charges she is facing in the House.

“Let’s fight for Maxine Waters,” read a headline on the signs above a large picture of the congresswoman. Smaller headings read: “No improper action. No benefit. No failure to disclose. No one influenced. No case!”

Pelosi was appearing outside the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., where she addressed an X Prize awards ceremony honoring the winners of a contest to build a safe car that gets at least 100 miles per gallon in fuel efficiency. The staffers entered the outdoor area where Pelosi was scheduled to speak and departed without incident when asked to leave minutes later.

Waters told The Hill afterward that the staffers had been displaying the signs at the annual legislative conference for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, which was held at the Washington convention center a few blocks away. “It ain’t about Nancy. It’s about black people,” Waters said.

Waters said she was deploying campaign signs at events throughout the country to defend herself against charges that she improperly intervened to help a failing bank secure a meeting with Treasury officials even though her husband had owned stock in the company and previously served on its board. “These signs will show up wherever large numbers of African Americans gather,” Waters said.

A campaign aide to the congresswoman said the young men at the Pelosi event were staffers paid for the day.

The staffers who attended the Pelosi event declined to speak to The Hill, but before leaving one of the aides identified Waters as his aunt and said they were at the X Prize ceremony to see the cars on display. The Waters campaign aide said no family members were among the staffers sent to the CBC conference.

Told that one of the staffers had identified her as his aunt, Waters shrugged and replied: “I’m everybody’s aunt.”

Dog, meet your fleas.

This really has me laughing. The democrats really bottom line hate each other, maybe almost as much as I can't tolerate them. hahaha

To Waters it's all about race. Use the race angle to cover up misconduct. Hope Pelosi is happy with her "most ethical" Congress.

My hope is that when the hangings for treason begin that Waters shares the same gallows as Pelosi. A double stretching would be grand.

Tom, she really is like that, your right. How horrible to live each day with the race card of hate in ones soul.

Eddie, if our country was the way it should be there sure would be justice for the treason these people commit. I wish they would bring back the punishment for treason against our Constitution and our country.
