Three staffers working for embattled Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) were asked by security officers to leave an event in downtown Washington on Thursday after they tried to display large campaign signs just as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was about to speak.
The aides were holding lawn signs that defended Waters from the ethics charges she is facing in the House.
“Let’s fight for Maxine Waters,” read a headline on the signs above a large picture of the congresswoman. Smaller headings read: “No improper action. No benefit. No failure to disclose. No one influenced. No case!”
This reminds me of something I witnessed during my first trip to the old Soviet Union. We (me, my brother, and our rep) were sitting in the “eating hall” of the Mozhaisky Hotel in Moscow. Across the hall they were having a wedding reception. Things were going well until too much vodka was under everyone’s belt, when one of the guests got mad about something another had said, shouted “I thought you were my friend!” and starting slugging. Things went downhill after that.
That’s about where the Democrats are right at the moment. They ran the table in Washington, with their groom in the White House. They celebrated, but drunk too much of the vodka of power. Now the fight starts.
I’ll bet that Maxine Waters has Stenny Hoyer’s cell number…
