House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters has continued to pay her daughter with campaign cash – and has already broken the seven-figure mark.
Since 2003, Karen Waters has received over $1 million in payments from her mother to her and her company, Progressive Connections, for campaign-related services.
Federal Elections Commission (FEC) data reviewed by Fox News Digital shows the payments range from the hundreds to the tens of thousands of dollars for a variety of costs, including "slate mailer management" fees, "campaign managing services," and paying for a "band for [a] holiday event."
Waters’ campaign did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
The recurring financial windfall funneling from Waters’ campaign to her daughter’s coffers is a staple feature of the congresswoman’s career in office.
Karen Waters organized slate-mailing operations to bolster her mother's re-election.
Slate-mailing is an uncommon practice in federal elections, where a consulting firm is hired to create a pamphlet of sorts that contains a list of candidates or policy measures, and advises voters how to cast their ballots.
Rep. Waters was reportedly the only federal politician to use a slate-mailer operation during the 2020 general election.
Other members of the Waters clan have also made off with donor cash over the course of the congresswoman’s decades-long career.
In 2004, the Los Angeles Times revealed that the Waters campaign had shelled out over $1 million to other family members over the previous eight years.
