Maxine Waters met with a large group of homeless people in Los Angeles and apparently there were some crossed wires about housing vouchers that were supposed to be available but weren’t.
When the meeting started to go south, Waters told everyone to go home. One person in attendance reminded her that they don’t have homes.
Then Waters tried to stop a media report about the incident.
The New York Post reports:
Rep. Maxine Waters warns reporter over LA homeless story: ‘You’ll hurt yourself’
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) tried to stop the publication of a news story about Los Angeles’ homeless crisis this week, reportedly telling a Los Angeles Times scribe: “You’ll hurt yourself and the community trying to put this together.”
The Wednesday story by investigative reporter Connor Sheets detailed a March 25 incident in South Los Angeles, where hundreds of homeless people tried to obtain Section 8 housing vouchers after being misled by social media rumors.
The would-be applicants crashed an event held by nonprofit advocacy group Fathers and Mothers Who Care, which had been meant to help the unhoused obtain emergency shelter.
The confusion reportedly overwhelmed the non-profit as well as Los Angeles Housing Services Authority (LAHSA) workers who told the unexpected arrivals that they would only be able to provide their information and enter an emergency housing database.
At one point, Waters told the crowd: “I want everybody to go home,” triggering an angry response.
“We don’t got no home, that’s why we’re here!” one member of the crowd yelled back, according to the LA Times. “What home we gonna go to?”
