Rep. Maxine Waters has found herself at the center of a scandal that could be a huge problem for her down the road.
Investigative reporter Connor Sheets at the Los Angeles Times was threatened by the California congresswoman when she learned about his upcoming story about Section 8 housing vouchers in her district.
“You’ll hurt yourself and the community trying to put this together,” she told Sheets.
On March 25, 2022, hundreds of homeless people tried to get Section 8 housing vouchers in South Los Angeles after being misled.
The hopeful applicants crashed an event held by a nonprofit advocacy group Father and Mothers Who Care which was trying to help the homeless receive emergency shelter.
The situation quickly became chaotic overwhelming the non-profit and the Los Angeles Housing Services Authority (LAHSA).
“I want everybody to go home,” Waters yelled infuriating the crowd.
“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?”
It was reported Waters said, “Nothing is going to happen here today.”
A homeless disabled person recounted that Waters had lied to them.
From the New York Post:
One homeless disabled woman, Joyce Burnett, told the Times that Waters instructed the crowd to come back to the South Angeles office the following Tuesday with appropriate documents.
“Maxine Waters was here, and she said to come back Tuesday with our paperwork filled out,” Burnett said. “I have it, everything they asked for. But every time we get near the front of the line, they shut the door. They opened the door about 20 minutes ago and said they’re not servicing anyone else today.”
When contacted by the LA Times Tuesday, Waters requested the story not be published, saying “it’s a bunch of rumors.”
“You’ll hurt yourself and the community trying to put this together without background,” she told Sheets, according to the report. “I don’t want you to start trying to write it, you won’t understand it.”
The homeless situation in California is quickly becoming a disaster and the misinformation being spread by Waters it could end her tenure in Congress.
