Double Standards


In 1995 Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) took to the floor to excoriate then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) over accusations that he had violated ethics laws.

Now look who’s in the hot seat. Waters herself is now headed to a public trial after the House Ethics Committee (now there’s an oxymoron) charged her with violating House rules.

She’s accused of intervening with Federal regulators on behalf of a bank in which she and her husband have substantial investments, and where her husband once served on the board of directors. The bank was one of the weakest to receive funds from the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

Maybe now we’ll find out who Maxine Waters really is.
