Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has funneled $1.2 million in campaign cash payments to her daughter, adding another $24,000 during the most recent quarter, Federal Election Commission records have revealed.

Karen Waters and her company, Progressive Connections, have received more than $1.2 million since 2003 for campaign services, including "slate mailer management" fees and "campaign managing services."

A "Citizens for Waters" campaign committee filing from earlier this week shows that the younger Waters received $24,000 from the committee between January and March 2022.

As Fox News reported:

Slate-mailing is an uncommon practice in federal elections, where a consulting firm is hired to create a pamphlet of sorts that contains a list of candidates or policy measures, and advises voters how to cast their ballots.

Rep. Waters was reportedly the only federal politician to use a slate-mailer operation during the 2020 general election.

Both Democrats and Republicans have paid relatives with campaign contributions over the years.

While it's legal for federal lawmakers to employ family members on campaigns, ethics experts generally frown upon the practice.

Over several years, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) paid out nearly $3 million to her husband Tim Mynett's political consulting firm, the E Street Group.

The E Street Group's biggest client was Omar's campaign, which supplied the business with nearly 80 percent of all its cash from federal committees, before ceasing the payments after they came under scrutiny.

Far-left Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), Omar's mentor in Congress, added $194,000 in payments to the E Street Group for digital consulting.

Before ceasing the practice, Omar faced scrutiny for her campaign's payments to her husband's consulting firm.

Following questions over the arrangement, Omar terminated the contract in November 2020.

Mynett and his business partner, Will Hailer, began consulting the wine industry.

However, the E Street Group appears to be shifting back to the political consulting world.

In February, the E Street Group received its first federal committee payment in more than a year, which was sent from a committee linked to Omar.
