Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) is apparently too busy trying to impeach Trump to be bothered with the district she was elected to represent. Now, with an epidemic of typhus, a deadly medieval disease, making a comeback in her rat-infested district, Maxine may actually be getting some much-deserved attention. For years, Maxine has neglected the exploding homeless population on the streets of L.A., while the mainstream media looks the other way, in favor of covering fake Trump- Russia collusion stories.
Perhaps it’s time Maxine finally gets the attention she deserves…
NBC Local Los Angeles– A veteran Los Angeles City Hall official is one of the latest victims of an epidemic of the infectious disease typhus that continues to worsen across LA County.
For months, LA County public health officials have said typhus is mainly hitting the homeless population.
Veteran Deputy City Attorney Liz Greenwood, a veteran prosecutor, tells NBC4 she was diagnosed with typhus in November, after experiencing high fevers and excruciating headaches.
“It felt like somebody was driving railroad stakes through my eyes and out the back of my neck,” Greenwood told the I-Team. “Who gets typhus? It’s a medieval disease that’s caused by trash.”
Greenwood believes she contracted typhus from fleas in her office at City Hall East. Fleas often live on rats, which congregate in the many heaps of trash that are visible across the city of LA, and are a breeding ground for typhus.
“There are rats in City Hall and City Hall East,” Greenwood added. “There are enormous rats and their tails are as long as their bodies.”
Last year set a new record for the number of typhus cases — 124 in LA County for the year, according to the California Department of Public Health.
