Maxine Waters Spent $10,000 on What??

The controversial representative spent $10,000 on tickets to a big Broadway show through her re-election campaign, and listed it as a "Fundraiser Expense."

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has spent weeks in the headlines this year for her consistent calls to impeach President Trump. Now she’s in the headlines for some of her own bad news.

Observers pointed out on Monday that Waters, in her campaign’s new FEC report, purchased $10,747.15 worth of tickets to the broadway show Hamilton and listed the purchase as a “Fundraiser Expense.”

It’s far from the first time Waters has made the news this year. She has frequently argued for impeachment of President Trump without evidence, she mentioned HUD Secretary Ben Carson in the same breath as the KKK in August, and in September even suggested the president has cheated on his wife.

For all her bluster, Waters has surely picked up some new fans in 2017 – but would they approve of her decision to use campaign funds to purchase Broadway tickets?
