Report: Corruptocrat Swamp Queen Maxine Waters will not be charged with ethics violations

Instead of draining the swamp, the House Ethics Committee decided to guzzle the fetid water today. Politico reports that Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters will not be charged with ethics violations for her corrupt cronyism.

Why drain the swamp when you can let it fester?

Absurd.

More from the Associated Press:

At a meeting Friday, House Ethics Committee members said they found no violations in their investigation of allegations she steered a $12 million federal bailout to a bank where her husband owns stock. Waters is a senior Democrat on the Financial Services Committee.

The committee, however, said Waters’ chief of staff, Mikael Moore, did take actions in Congress in an attempt to help the bank and violated standards of conduct. Moore likely will receive a letter admonishing him for his conduct. but will not face more severe punishment, such as a reprimand, by the full House.

Moore finds the ever-so-strongly worded letter a “difficult pill to swallow.”

Twitchy will update with any breaking developments.

Update:

For a reminder of the charges against Waters and her obscene excuses:

    When maybe 15 ‘Rats would vote for expulsion, why would the Pubbies pursue charges? They learned the wrong lesson from 1998.

    If this is true, then it follows that Congress should have no further use for the word ‘Ethics’.

      Again, Nancy FAILS to drain the swamp! Unreal.

        As long as the GOP holds onto the house she won’t be able to much other than nip at the heels of the Chair. But if the Dem’s take over she’ll make sure our economy NEVER recovers (gotta spread the wealth donchaknow).

    I’m surprised that the esteemed Ms. Waters remembers how to breathe.
    Thanks to her constituency, she will be there as long as she likes. The best we can do is work hard wherever we are to marginalize her by voting in people in line with our principles.

    Not that I believe Congress really has any ethics, just want to point out that the Ethics Committee is always an even split on members from each party, regardless of which party controls the Speakership. The fact that she is not being charged could be that the vote was 5-5. I can’t find a breakdown of the vote and don’t know if they make that public.

      I emailed Sanchez, but the others I tried won’t accept out of area. Any ideas out there how to have this re-visited? Um,… by people with Ethics?

      I still do not understand how Puerto Rico who voted against statehood in favor of being a common wealth should have anyone on any committees let alone in the House. Then again Guam, Samoa, and D.C. have reps as well. Ethics ? Yeah the barn is in front of them and they keep hitting the house ( no aim ).

    Seems Waters is thicker than blood. Maxine is being let go, but her grandson, the Mikeal Moore mentioned in the Politico blurb up top is going to be held accountable for “breaches of House Codes of Conduct.”

      “Culture of corruption.” Exactly. She’s a disgrace, a socialist, and a nightmare.

    They were afraid maxine would cry “racism” if convicted, so they caved.

    Pathetic. Sad day in America when the guilty are released and promoted to positions that normally would be inclined not to let thieves inhabit.

      Call me naive but I always have a particle of hope that someone somewhere will so the right thing eventually. A dn I wonder why I’m always disappointed by our government.

    Charging Maxine? “Everyone knows” that would be raaaaacist. And we can’t have that. #Republicanscave.

    ‘Ethics’ is to Congress what ‘human rights’ is to the UN.

    Well, she’s black, and now thanks to those two ÜBER-racists Obama and Holder, that makes her a Federally protected species. Now if she were a WHITE Congresswoman she would have been done for.

      Only if she were a *conservative* white woman, or any other race if conservative.

    Clearly, the word “ethics” is now Greek, because so many on Capital Hill now fail to understand it’s meaning. I’m not surprised but I sure as heck am madder than a hornet.
