Yep I do not see any ethics problems here

"The question at this point should not be why I called Secretary Paulson, but why I had to," she said. "The question at this point should be why a trade association representing over 100 minority banks could not get a meeting at the height of the crisis."

Waters, who holds a senior position on the Financial Services Committee That's a problem for Waters since her husband, Sidney Williams, served as a member of OneUnited's board of directors from January 2004 until April 2008, and was a stockholder in the bank.

OneUnited eventually got $12 million of the $50 million in bailout money it requested, enough to keep the bank afloat. The ethics panel says that kept Waters' family stock from becoming worthless, which the committee says shows that she personally benefited by using her office.

So, she is upset she got caught, and blames Bush?

Cool.

Typical crook, "I was framed". Sounds like she got caught with her fingers in the pie.
