House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., paid her daughter over $74,000 in campaign funds in 2021 alone.

According to campaign records a per Fox News, Waters paid her daughter, Karen Waters, a cumulative $74,000 in donor cash through September.

Over $20,000 was paid to the younger Waters in the last quarter alone, nearly a third of the median American household income in 2020, according to the Census Bureau.

Since 2003, Waters' daughter has received over $1.1 million for her work on her mother’s campaigns.

Neon Nettle reported earlier this year that the Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings show Karen Waters took home $1.13 million from the campaign coffers.

The payments were allegedly for providing various “services” for her mother’s campaign since 2003.

Most of the cash is for her role in running a slate-mailer operation.

The 2020 election cycle alone saw $250,000 funneled to the House Financial Services Committee chairwoman's daughter.

Waters' daughter organized slate-mailing operations to bolster her mother's reelection.

Neon Nettle reported the Federal Election Commission gave Waters the green light for the mailer operation in 2004.

While slate mailers are commonplace in states like California and Oregon, the practice is extremely rare at the federal level.

In fact, Waters appears to be the only federal politician to use a slate-mailer operation.

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) and former Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) have likewise dished out cash for Waters’ support.

The practice has received criticism from local media.

”While some of these mailers reflect the earnest political values of the organizations that put them together, many are pay-to-play money-makers that blur the line between endorsement, paid advertisement, and extortion,” CalMatters wrote last year.
