Breaking: House Oversight Committee Chair Elijah Cummings And Wife Named In Major Corruption Scandal

(Tea Party PAC) – It’s amazing how much corruption seeps through the Democratic party.

It’s almost as if the party that supports murdering babies in the womb and overturning the will of the American people for who should be President doesn’t have any moral backbone!

Rep. Elijah Cummings and his wife seem to have taken a page out of Hillary Clinton’s book, by using their own charity as a conduit for political bribes.

It has been revealed that a charity run by Cummings’ wife, Maya Rockeymoore, accepted millions in donations from special interest groups and corporations that had business before Cummings’ panel, the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, over which he is chair and yes, this is incredibly ironic.

The Washington Examiner reported:

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.

The couple has remained mostly tight-lipped since this information came to light, refusing to answer key questions.

WBAL reports:

In a statement to Maryland Matters, Rockeymoore Cummings said her consultancy got a childhood obesity prevention grant from RWJF in 2006, and that she didn’t found her nonprofit until 2012. She and Cummings married in 2008.

“After the formation of CGPS, subsequent RWJF grant awards were applied for and received by the nonprofit entity because our childhood obesity prevention work was charitable in nature,” she told the website.

While neither she nor her husband answered the Examiner’s questions about the connections between her work and her husband’s committee, she said in the statement that she never dealt with Johnson & Johnson and that Cummings’ work on drug prices has nothing to do with her work on preventing childhood obesity.

Neither Cummings nor Rockeymoore would answer questions posed by the paper about the overlap between foundation donors and business before the committee. In her statement to Maryland Matters, Rockeymoore Cummings questioned the motives of the report.

“It appears a conservative front group and a news outlet funded by a Republican billionaire are pushing a hit piece filled with faulty research, lies and innuendo in an attempt to tarnish my personal reputation, professional work and public service as well as that of my spouse, U.S. Congressman Elijah E. Cummings— who holds a critical oversight role in our nation’s government,” Cummings said.
