Congresswoman Maxine Waters Charged With Ethics Violations
California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters has officially been charged with violating ethics rules.
The senior member of the House Financial Services Committee is set to face a trial in the fall much like her fellow Democratic, Rep.Charles Rangel of New York, unless she negotiates a settlement.
The House ethics committee has not released the details on the formal charges against her.
Waters has been under investigation for possible conflict of interest involving her assistance to a bank that was seeking federal aid that her husband had connections to with their stock and board of directors.
