House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has paid her daughter in amounts totaling $74,000 for this year so far.
An FEC report for this year's first and second quarters lists Waters' daughter getting paid $45,000, and another report of recent filings indicate $29,000 was paid to Waters' daughter for the third quarter.
Waters' daughter was paid via her work for "slate mailer management."
According to Fox News, "slate-mailing is an uncommon practice in federal elections, where a consulting firm is hired to create a pamphlet of sorts that contains a list of candidates or policy measures, and advises voters how to cast their ballots."
For the 2020 general election, Waters was the only candidate to use a slate mailer operation for her campaign.
Since 2003, Waters' daughter has received more than $1.1 million in campaign contributions.
