Maxine Waters Target Of Racist 'Poverty Pimp' Posters

The KKK has come to Los Angeles, perhaps?

Maxine Waters may as well be running unopposed in this election. Her opponent poses no serious threat to her seat, and she is expected to win by a large margin. But that hasn't stopped someone from papering her district with incredibly offensive posters.

CBSLA:

Posters featuring a black-and-white illustration of Waters bordered with the words “Poverty Pimp” have been plastered on streets and near freeways and businesses throughout Los Angeles, Inglewood and the South Bay.

KNX 1070’s Claudia Peschiutta reports the ad portrays a wrinkled caricature of Waters depicted with red dollar signs in her eyes and the words “N—-s Betta Have My Money!” behind her.

[...]

The ads were captured in images posted online in front of such Southern California landmarks as The Forum and Randy’s Donuts in Inglewood, and even allegedly in front of Waters’ private residence in Hancock Park.

Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson and other activists began taking down the posters at various locations Sunday and are demanding a “fast track investigation” by the California Fair Political Practices Commission.

“We’re highly offended, we’re disgusted by it, we hope this is not the start of something that we’ll continue to see not only in politics, but beyond in Southern California,” said Hutchinson.

Back in the days when James O'Keefe was working with Andy Breitbart, he put a target on Waters and tried to use Nadia Naffe to set her up. Perhaps O'Keefe and the Breitbots should be questioned about what they might know, both about these posters and the ones of Ted Cruz as badass plastered all over Beverly Hills earlier this year.
