Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) held a news conference at the Capitol to challenge the charges made against her by the House Ethics Committee. She was joined by her chief of staff and grandson, Mikael Moore pictured here presenting a slide show of e-mail messages and letters that he says prove Waters did not violate congressional ethics rules. Waters denied that she used her influence to aid a bank in which her husband has a financial interest. Waters also attacked ethics investigators for drawing the wrong conclusions from what she said was her lifetime work of trying to aid minority-owned businesses in general.
