Did Elijah Cummings’ wife benefit from his committee position?

May 24, 2019

  Elijah Cummings, a Democrat by the way, is the Chairman of the Oversight Committee and now it is being reported that he might have used that position to the benefit of his wife. If this is true it appears as if Elijah Cummings’ wife’s charity received millions of dollars from businesses and special interests which had business before the Oversight Committee.

  Here is more:

A charity run by the wife of Rep. Elijah Cummings received millions from special interest groups and corporations that had business before her husband’s committee and could have been used illegally, according to an IRS complaint filed by an ethics watchdog group.

Cummings, 68, a Maryland Democrat, is chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. His wife, Maya Rockeymoore, 48, is the chairman of the Maryland Democratic Party and briefly ran in the state’s gubernatorial race last year. The couple married in 2008. Cummings was once heavily in debt — in part due to hefty child support payments to his first wife and two other women he had children with — but his financial situation has improved considerably over the past decade.

Rockeymoore runs two entities, a nonprofit group called the Center for Global Policy Solutions and a for-profit consulting firm called Global Policy Solutions, LLC, whose operations appear to have overlapped, according to the IRS complaint filed by watchdog group the National Legal and Policy Center on Monday. The complaint states that the arrangement may have been used to derive “illegal private benefit.”

Global Policy Solutions received more than $6.2 million in grants between 2013 and 2016, according to tax records. Several of the nonprofit group’s financial backers — which included Google, J.P Morgan, and Prudential — have business interests before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Cummings has served as Democratic chairman of the committee since January and previously served as ranking member.

“When a powerful chairman of a committee of the House of Representatives has a wife that is bringing in money from entities with interests before his Committee and she is not providing the transparency mandated by the IRS, there’s a serious problem,” said Anderson. “The potential for corruption in this situation is simply off the charts and can’t be understated. We hope Chairman Cummings works with his wife to end the stonewalling and provide the public with what’s legally mandated all charities provide.”

It looks like Mrs. Cummings got advice on how to run her charity from the Clinton’s…

    Her definition of charity is the totally opposite of God’s Charity! (1 Cor 13).
    Of course they all ‘feed’ from the same trough.
    The worse of the worse in powerful positions of authority is never good.
    “Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.”
    Evil puffing up more evil.
