The House ethics committee on Monday announced it has found Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., in violation of the rules of the House. The panel did not release the details of the violations, but most believe the charges relate to the 71-year-old lawmaker’s efforts to secure federal bailout funds for a bank tied to her husband. Waters has said she plans to fight the charges, which means the panel would have to hold a public hearing, much like a trial, to determine whether she is guilty of an violations.

Waters is the second Democrat in as many weeks to call for an ethics trial. Last week, an special House panel convened to outline 13 charges against Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., relating to unpaid taxes and using his office and power as a lawmaker to help big companies with tax legislation in exchange for large donations to a school named after him.

Update 14:55. Waters has released the following statement regarding the committee’s charges:

I have not violated any House rules.

Therefore, I simply will not be forced to admit to something I did not do and instead have chosen to respond to charges made by the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct in a public hearing.

Starting with the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) report released today, the record will clearly show that in advocating on behalf of minority banks neither my office nor I benefited in any way, engaged in improper action or influenced anyone. Additionally, the OCE acknowledges that I have fully disclosed my assets as required by House rules, even going above and beyond the requirements by disclosing my assets at several Financial Services Committee hearings. In sum, the case against me has no merit.

The accusations against me stem from work I have done throughout my decades of public service as an advocate for minority communities and businesses in California and nationally.

Maxine Waters

4                    1

how she obtains/loses her heart’s desire = MS = 41 = Opening up.

Maxine Waters was born on August 15th, 1938 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxine_Waters

August 15th

8 + 15 +2+0+0+9 = 34 = her personal year (from August 15th, 2009 to August 14th, 2010)

34 year + 7 (July) = 41 = her personal month (from July 15th, 2010 to August 15th, 2010) = Opening up.

When her number (41 (how she obtains/loses her heart’s desire)) comes up, that’s when she gets to live/experience what she is here to live/experience.  So this is HER month!!!

August 15th
