This is hilarious.
For years now, Democrats have been claiming they want big money out of politics. Yet Maxine Waters just claimed on national television that California should have more sway in the Democrat primary process because of all the big cash generated for Democrats at fancy parties in Beverly Hills.
You couldn’t make this up.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Maxine Waters: California Should Have More Say Over Primary Process Because of Its Rich Donors and Fancy Parties
Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) said that California should have more influence over the Democratic primary process because the state has so many wealthy donors.
“We have candidates who fly out to Los Angeles from everywhere to raise money,” Waters said Thursday on CNBC. “You would have two, three, four at a time in Beverly Hills having dinners and some of our contributors, who are very rich, were holding fancy parties, trying to accommodate the requests for donations and contributions.”
“The thinking is that if we are supplying tremendous dollars to candidates, we ought to have more say,” she added.

Does Waters have any idea how awful this sounds? Apparently not.
The rich elite Democrats should get the power…not the poor Iowans…they dont even throw the big parties we do

Love how she puts down Iowa and New Hampshire. I am sure that the representatives from those states would love to have a chat with her.
