Geithner, Obama Under Fire From Dem Maxine Waters

California’s Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters says Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner knew or certainly should have known about the Treasury’s approved bonuses for AIG employees.

She says President Obama must not have heard the full story on what Geithner knew and when he knew it.

Ms Waters was interviewed by Fox News.

The far left and liberal Waters has always been seen as a strong supporter of Barack Obama.

Her criticism of Obama Treasury Secretary may mean that other Democrats are tiring of Geithner and perhaps the president will be moved to replace him if enough Democrats speak out…..

Waters herself has been under fire.

Rep. Maxine Waters’ reelection campaign lent $25,000 last August to a nonprofit run by the California Democrat’s daughter, according to campaign finance records. The funds were used to underwrite the costs of events at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, a campaign official said.

Waters herself serves on the board of the nonprofit group African-American Committee 2000 and Beyond, the lawmaker’s financial disclosure filings show.

Sidney Williams, the congresswoman’s husband, has also been a director of the nonprofit, according to recent tax filings for the group.

    When Maxine speaks…….a bank in Boston listens.
    She sounds like she be trashtalkin the “2live teleprompter crew” but I have a sneeky suspicion that her motives may require executive massaging to keep her peeps in Boston toein da line. Ain’t dat right Mr. Waters?
