    Waters dismisses evidence in ethics case as 'staff chatter'

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) on Friday brushed aside a key piece of evidence in the ethics case against her as "staff chatter."

    Waters continued her public defense in an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America," maintaining her innocence and accusing ethics investigators of doing "sloppy work."

    The embattled California Democrat is accused of breaking conflict-of-interest rules by using her position to arrange a meeting in 2008 with Treasury officials for the failing OneUnited Bank, in which her husband was a stockholder and former board member. The bank eventually received $12 million in bailout funds.

    Asked about an e-mail between her chief of staff and grandson Mikael Moore and House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) that the ethics panel used in its case, Waters was dismissive.

    But Waters again fired back at the independent Office of Congressional Ethics, saying "they don't do good work, rather sloppy work." Waters supports legislation to limit the board's authority.

    This is an absolute disgrace! This is the woman who sat there in congressional hearings and told a CEO that "this liberal would be all about socializi....er ah, taking over and running their company." Now it comes forward that this corrupt individual helped funnel tax payer money to a Bank that her husband sits on the board of? And nothing is supposed to be wrong with that?

    Demo's for years hounded Tom Delay over much less, and the now deceased Ted Stevens as well, forced them OUT! And yet these demo's not only defiantly retain their positions, but move to "limit the ethic boards authority."

    Demo's should lock arms with all Americans and call for the resignation of these members that spit in our faces and consider themselves above reproach.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    She is one of the more unethical members of congress, I can't wait to see her go.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I sure hope she gets more than a slap on the wrist. That woman is about as corrupt as they come and a socialist to boot.
    The look on her face was priceless when she made that socializ.......blooper. If socialism is so great why do all but Bernie Sanders feel the need to hide the fact that they are socialists?
