The amount of reported debt owed from Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) to her daughter for running a lucrative campaign operation shot up $90,000 in a matter of weeks, according to new filings to the Federal Election Commission.

Karen Waters, the daughter of Rep. Waters, is in charge of a slate mailer—or endorsement mailer—operation for her mother’s campaign committee that has pulled in generous payments from other political committees.

The article goes on to state the following:

In order to appear on the mailers, which contain a sample ballot and quote of support from Waters, a politician must pay Waters’ campaign from their own committee. Oftentimes these payments range anywhere between $2,000 and $30,000. The mailers are sent to residents in South Central Los Angeles.

The operation has proved profitable for Karen Waters, who has collected $800,000 since 2004 when the Federal Election Commission granted Waters permission to run the mailers from her federal campaign committee.

    She gets away with this and they are no investigating President Trumps, Inauguration expenses.

      If the same rules were applied to all members of Congress that Trump is being investigated for, the House would be nearly empty.
