California Congresswoman Maxine Waters was filmed jumping out of her SUV to help a Black man who was pulled over by the police during a traffic stop in Los Angeles this weekend.
The black Democrat told the person filming her that the cops had “stopped a brother” and that she was going to check on the situation.
Waters claims that the deputies threatened her with a ticket for pulling over the way she did.
The 81-year-old lawmaker said in the footage: “They stopped a brother, so I stopped to see what they were doing.
“They say I’m in the wrong place. They say they’re going to give me a ticket.
“That’s ok, as long as I watch them.”
The person recording replied: “Gotta do what they gotta do. Make sure.”
“I will,” said Waters as she walked towards a female officer.
