California congressional candidate Antonio Sabato Jr. strongly asserted that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) should be arrested following her comments about harassing Trump administration officials. He called for her arrest on Monday during a CNN appearance with Chris Cuomo.


“Yeah. Maxine Waters, I call her the hustler of hate, promoting hate and division, and actually attacking the administration or anybody who is involved with this administration,” Sabato Jr. said. “That’s unheard of. She should be put behind bars and thrown away the key.”

“Hold on. You think Maxine waters should be arrested?” asked Cuomo.

“Yeah. She should definitely be arrested,” Sabato Jr. responded.

Sabato Jr. elaborated, saying that Waters should be put behind bars due to “all the crime in her neighborhood” and added that she “makes millions of dollars, lives in Beverly Hills. Her constituents are dying on the street, homeless all over the place, and she’s walking away, like saying everything is okay, our neighbors are fine.”

“Why don’t you go live in your neighborhood and live and surround yourself with your community and help them physically, be there, surround yourself like I’m doing in Ventura County for 15 years. That’s what people in Congress should be like, should be involved with the community 100 percent,” Sabato Jr. said.

The congressional candidate added, “Where is she making all this money? It’s corruption to the max.”
