I'd would be shocked if she was somehow removed from the House other than by death.

She will claim that isn't what she meant, again, and a few Dems will disavow her comments, and life will go on.

It'd be nice if she actually lived in the District that she represents.

SNIP:
A U.S. Navy veteran challenging Rep. Maxine Waters for her congressional seat took his campaign against the Democrat to her doorstep.

“Do you know where I am right now? Maxine Waters’ six million-dollar mansion,” Collins asked in the video released over the weekend. “Do you know where I’m not right now? Maxine Waters’ district.”

“Maxine does not live in her district — but I do,” Collins added, noting that he grew up in South Los Angeles, an area represented by Waters in her more than four decades as a member of Congress.

SNIP:
When CREW named Waters one of its “most corrupt” politicians in 2011, the group focused on her role in a federal bailout for OneUnited Bank, on whose board her husband served and in which he owned a sizable stake, during the 2008 banking crisis. Waters arranged a meeting with the Treasury Department at which OneUnited representatives sought federal bailout money. The bank eventually received more than $12 million from the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

That led to an ethics investigation into Waters’ involvement in setting up the meeting. Investigators eventually concluded that she had disclosed her financial ties to the bank, recused herself from decisions involving it, and believed the Treasury meeting would involve representatives from minority-owned banks generally, not just OneUnited (PDF). The Ethics Committee found that she had not violated any rules barring the use of one’s position for financial gain.

But that was not the case for Waters’ then-chief of staff Mikael Moore, who also happens to be her grandson. Investigators found that Moore had taken actions “unambiguously intended to assist OneUnited specifically.” He received an official reprimand.


Moore is not the only Waters family member to benefit from the congresswoman’s position. Waters’ daughter Karen has pulled in nearly $650,000 for running a “slate mailer” operation for Waters’ campaign that ethics groups have described as an end-run around campaign finance limits.

When will someone do America a favor and run over Maxine Waters with a bus? Maybe even yell Allah Akbar in the process. 😂😂😂😂

Well, if she really lives outside of her district, then she already has, no?

Heh, much of Congress would be on the hot seat if that was a rule

True - about 20 of them.
Seems to me that you'd reside in the District you represent.
But apparently many don't care where their Congressman lives...

We already know you'll defend her to the last simply because she's black regardless of what she has said or done.
