Rep. Maxine WatersMaxine Moore WatersWhich proposals will survive in the Democrats' spending plan? House Democrats scramble to save housing as Biden eyes cuts Toomey takes aim at Schumer's spending windfall for NYC public housing MORE (D-Calif.) tweeted Tuesday that her Twitter account had been hacked and erased despite her profile appearing unchanged.

“I have been hacked and my Twitter account has been erased,” the House Financial Services Committee chairwoman tweeted late Tuesday morning, seemingly in control of her account. “I know who has done this. I will take care of this. M Waters.”


The California lawmaker’s account did not appear to have any posts deleted as of Tuesday afternoon.

The Hill has reached out to Waters’s office for further details.

A spokesperson for Twitter told The Hill that the platform has "identified no signs of account compromise."

"We can't comment on the Tweet, but, as is standard, we have open lines of communication with her office and have worked with them to ensure the account is secure," they added.
