The Democratic Congresswoman– who is still battling House ethics violation charges in an ongoing investigation– was addressing a townhall audience in Inglewood, California this Satuday, and the crowd burst into vigorous applause, giving Waters a standing ovation when she said:
“This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned — the Tea Party can go straight to hell.”
Most media reports of the incident have omitted what she said after the applause subsided.
