Waters emphatically denies wrongdoing

A House panel announced Monday that it had charged Rep. Maxine Waters with violating ethics rules, setting the stage for a second election-season trial for a longtime Democratic lawmaker and adding to the party's political woes.
The charges against Waters, a 10-term California congresswoman, focus on whether she broke the rules in requesting federal help for a bank where her husband was a board member and owned stock. She immediately denied the charges.

Reps. Charles Rangel and Maxine Waters must defend their records

A second House Democrat, Rep. Maxine Waters of California, could face an ethics trial this fall, charged with a possible conflict of interest involving a bank seeking federal aid. New York Democrat Rep. Charles Rangel also faces an ethics trial this fall on charges that include failure to disclose assets and income, nonpayment of taxes and doing legislative favors for donors to a college center named after him.
