Rep. Maxine Waters Says She Will Fight Ethics Charges
Waters was on “Good Morning America” and told George Stephanapolous she will fight to the end!
A trial is scheduled this fall on three charges of ethics offenses focusing on Waters actions of requesting federal help from a bank where her husband has stocks and had been on the board of directors.Rep. Waters has been accused of violating the following rules:
- House members should not exert offensive influence that will help them gain personal benefit
- Government Employees should not grant or accept favors involving employees or family members which can be seen as influencing official actions.
- Members’ conduct should always reflect creditably on the house.
The representative has declared her plans to oppose those charges which means that the panel will need to hold a public trial.
Her appearance on “Good Morning America” was her first since the House ethics committee released its findings.
