WHAT COULD GO WRONG? Maxine Waters To Become Senior Democrat on Financial Services Committee. “This is really an extraordinary development. ‘Flabbergasting’ might be a more apt word. Leave aside the recent ethics investigation over whether she used her position on the committee to help a bank her husband was involved with (which ended with her chief of staff getting reprimanded). Maxine Waters reliably delivers the craziest questions and the most bizarre speeches on that committee, and tends to demonstrate a stunning lack of grasp of the committee’s core subject matter.”
