Maxine Waters Breaks Her Silence

Hosted by

Los Angeles Democrat Maxine Waters faces charges from the House Ethics Committee, and she's demanding that the charges against her be made public now and that a hearing be held before the November election. We hear from the Congresswoman and about the preliminary report that led to the charges being filed. Also, $1.3 billion in federal aid may be coming to California after all. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, federal judges have overturned California's same-sex marriage ban and part of Arizona's tough immigration law. Voters in Missouri this week said no to a federal requirement to buy health insurance. We talk about law, politics and states' rights.
