    With Representitive Maxine Waters' ethics trial on hold, it appears that the reason is that there is a new charge against her.

    Will Ethics Committee Investigate New Allegation Against Maxine Waters?

    [SNIP]

    The House Ethics Committees says it will take up its charges against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) following its trial of Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY). But what exactly will it consider?

    Last August, the congresswoman was charged with violating House ethics rules, for allegedly helping to steer over $12 million in federal bailout funds to a bank in which her husband had a substantial financial stake. Investigators say that Rep. Waters violated conflict-of-interest rules when she set up a meeting between OneUnited Bank officials and the U.S. Treasury Department.

    In the interim, the Washington Times reported that Waters co-sponsored legislation that directly benefited one of the top clients of a lobbying group that had her husband on the payroll.

    Lobbying records show that lobbyist Mike Roos paid Rep. Waters' husband Sidney Williams $15,000 for his work as a consultant on a Los Angeles real estate project during the first quarter of 2009. During the same time period, Rep. Waters co-sponsored a bill that Roos was lobbying for, which aimed to overturn a federal ban on seller-funded down-payment assistance programs.

    I'm not sure the case against Waters will go anywhere; there's a ginormous difference between her alleged conflict of interest and Rangel's flagrant fleecing constituents and supporters. However, there are other Dems lined up behind her for investigation and trial.

    I think the Black Congressional Congress should pass the hat and hire a lawyer with ethics expertise to keep them on the straight and narrow.

    Why is it that a good thread does not get to much of a response?
