    Top Democrat's wife may have gained 'illegal private benefit' from his committee activities


    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.

    The largest contributor to the nonprofit organization was the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, a company that is regulated by Cummings’ committee. The foundation, which gave a total of $5.5 million to Rockeymoore’s consulting firm and $5.2 million to her nonprofit group, ceased supporting her groups in 2017.

    So you're OK with Cummings profiting directly from his committee work.

    No surprise there....more "the law doesn't apply to Crime-o-crats" nonsense....


    More TROUBLE WITH REALITY WE SEE...those numbers ARE NOT IN DISPUTE, except I your reality-challenged world view.



    IT IS ALREADY REAL.

    It's a lot like the Maxine Waters situation. Spouse, children setting up accounts tied in with campaign donations, on and on.
    Muddy the water and blur the lines just enough to almost get away with it.
    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason and harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals must be protected and safe in their nesting places........humans must not.

    To abort something is to end something which has begun.
    To abort life is to end it.

    This is more problematic that Waters even, IMHO.


    His "charity" received $MILLIONS immediately prior to or after his committee's dealings with the DONORS....

    Wasn't the DEMOCRAT Mayor of Baltimore just driven from office for a scam?




    CORRUPT FEMOCRAT


    DEMOCRAT Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh resigned Thursday amid an ongoing scandal over a no-bid book deal steered to the University of Maryland Medical Center, according to a statement.

    Her attorney, Steve Silverman, read the short statement at a press conference Thursday afternoon.

    "Today I am submitting my written resignation to the Baltimore City Council. I am sorry for the harm that I have caused to the image of the city of Baltimore and the credibility of the office of the mayor," Silverman said, reading from Pugh's written statement.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trump_University



    Trump University (also known as the Trump Wealth Institute and Trump Entrepreneur Initiative LLC) was an American for-profit education company that ran a real estate training program from 2005 until 2010. It was owned and operated by The Trump Organization. (A separate organization, Trump Institute, was licensed by Trump University but not owned by the Trump Organization.) After multiple lawsuits, it is now defunct. It was founded by Donald Trump and his associates, Michael Sexton and Jonathan Spitalny, in 2004. The company offered courses in real estate, asset management, entrepreneurship, and wealth creation.[2]
    The organization was not an accredited university or college. It conducted 3 and 5 day seminars (often labelled as "retreats") and used high pressure tactics to sell these to its customers.[3] It did not confer college credit, grant degrees, or grade its students.[4] In 2011, the company became the subject of an inquiry by the New York Attorney General's office for illegal business practices that resulted in a lawsuit filed in 2013.
    Trump University was also the subject of two class action lawsuits in federal court. The lawsuits centered around allegations that Trump University defrauded its students by using misleading marketing practices and engaging in aggressive sales tactics. The company and the lawsuits against it received renewed interest due to Trump's candidacy in the 2016 presidential election. Despite repeatedly insisting that he would not settle, Trump settled all three lawsuits in November 2016 for a total of $25 million after being elected to the presidency.[5]
