Bloomberg’s Anna Massoglia went digging through Rep. Maxine Waters’ latest FEC filing and — SURPRISE! — found lots of lavish and questionable spending:

Like “$400+” on “meeting expenses” at place that just so happens to be a fancy restaurant:

And $5000 spent on one fundraiser event while only taking in $15,000 for the quarter:

Waters' campaign spent nearly $5k at Del Friscos on one "Fundraiser Event"

And so much for that “Donald Trump is awful for hiring his kids” line of attack:

Q2 saw another $8,500 to Maxine Waters' daughter, who has racked up hundreds of thousands from her mother's campaign http://thebea.st/2r6bjLR pic.twitter.com/jF55ORQSyi

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

One of the most lucrative government fields is that of village and city managers, many of whom out-earn every U.S. governor. The 10 highest-paid village and city managers in Illinois are located in Cook County and...

California is an [illegal?] gold mine.

"Illegals living in Los Angeles County were handed almost $1.3 billion in welfare payouts between the months of 2015 and 2016"...
