With Charlie Rangel’s ethics trial out of the way, it’s one wrist-slap down, one to go, for the Dems. But it looks like fellow Congressional Black Caucus member and entrenched race hustler Maxine Waters will have a little more time to wait.
The House Ethics panel says in a statement released this afternoon that new documents have been found. No new trial date has been set.
You can read the brief statement here.
“The Committee voted to recommit the matter regarding Representative Maxine Waters to the investigative subcommittee due to materials discovered that may have had an effect on the investigative subcommittee’s transmittal to the Committee.”
Let’s hope the new evidence is related to the Washington Times’ revelation that Waters co-sponsored legislation that directly benefited one of the top clients of a lobbying group that had her husband on the payroll.
The gears of the swamp-draining machine grind slowly, ever so slowly…
