    Cummings Wifes Refusal To Turn Over Records On Her Nonprofit Is Illegal,

    Cummings Wifes Refusal To Turn Over Records On Her Nonprofit Is Illegal, Expert Says

    • Rep. Elijah Cummings wife runs a nonprofit that has taken millions from interest groups with business before the Oversight Committee that Cummings chairs.
    • Cummings wife did not answer a request from The Daily Caller News Foundation to review the forms, which a lawyer said was illegal.
    • A watchdog group filed a complaint with the IRS saying that Cummings family could be trading favors for money, and told The DCNF about the wifes creepy and weird conduct when it spoke with her.


    Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings wife is breaking the law by hiding financial disclosures about her nonprofit, an uninvolved legal expert told The Daily Caller News Foundation.


    Rockeymoore Cummings runs a nonprofit called the Center for Global Policy Solutions that is closely intertwined with a for-profit consulting firm, Global Policy Solutions LLC. The nonprofit has received millions of dollars from groups with interests before the congressmans committee, potentially buying them favorable treatment, according to a complaint filed with the IRS by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC).


    At least three different groups have requested the forms, and to each, Rockeymoore Cummings has refused, even when told that the law requires it. She refused on the phone to NLPC, and did not answer formal requests to view the forms from the Washington Examinerand the Daily Caller News Foundation.


    Wow. Thats illegal, Sally Wagenmaker, a Chicago attorney who specializes in nonprofit tax law, told TheDCNF. Its interesting and sad. You have the right to get them. The organization absolutely is required to provide the information, so to not do so would appear to be flaunting the law.


    As a family member of an elected official, wed expect high-road, integrity and compliance. If anyone should be responding promptly, it should be her. He should be above approach.
    Rockeymoore Cummings did not provide any reasoning for her refusal. The congressman later launched ad hominem attacks at the requesters, saying the Examiner and the NLPC leaned conservative, without explaining how that would negate any potential legal issues.


    Nonprofits must publicly disclose information about their operations in exchange for being exempt from taxes, and the IRS form on which they disclose the information is called a Form 990.

    One of the policy reasons for disclosure is to be able to illuminate conflict of interest, and the medias role is to help illuminate that: is she trying to hide information, is she being secretive, does she think shes above the law? And one of the ways that happens is through the required disclosure of 990s, Wagenmaker said.


    Cummings chairs the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. It was the same committee that, when controlled by Republicans, used its oversight powers over federal agencies including the IRS to subpoena Lois Lerner, then the IRSs head of nonprofit compliance. Then-chairman Darrell Issa said the IRSs nonprofit tax division was selectively enforcing the law based on politics, giving Tea Party groups a hard time while looking the other way at violations by Democratic groups.


    Cummings is also demanding President Donald Trumps business records.


    Tom Anderson, an investigator with the NLPC, a good-governance group that leans conservative, told TheDCNF that his groups phone calls with Rockeymoore Cummings who is chair of the Maryland Democratic Party were a bizarre experience.


    We called the phone number for the nonprofit and she answered it like her personal cell. Then every time we asked a question, she just kept repeating And how can I help you? And then finally hung up. It was so creepy.


    We pointed out that it was required by law, and her response was and how can I help you? It was so weird.


    Its against the law. You have to hand those over. Were a 501(c)(3) and if George Soros or a 10-year old kid requested our 990, wed have to hand it over on the spot. The idea that she thinks she doesnt have to is outrageous.


    The problem is there are millions of dollars coming into these entities from corporations and special interests with business before Elijah Cummings, and any time you have that, every rule has to be followed or else it opens the door for massive corruption. And that holds whether the politician in question is Donald Trump, Elijah Cummings or someone else.


    Cummings went on to rant about how were a conspiracy right-wing group for super-mega billionaires, which sounds like something out of Star Wars, Anderson said.


    Anderson is a Florida resident who worked at a department store before finding his calling as an anti-fraud investigator when an injury left him temporarily unable to walk, according to NLPCs website.


    What Cummings did not do, Anderson said, is provide any evidence that his IRS complaint was wrong. Were going to Johnson + Johnson, Prudential, lining up all the dots, he said of groups whose donations to the nonprofit could raise conflict of interest concerns.

    Democommies are immune from the law. Just ask them. They will tell you that laws for for non-democommies.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg. Feinstein’s husband , Chelsea Clinton the list of corrupt politician criminals is endless.
    A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government. George Washington

    Exclamation Top House Democrat's Wife Funneled Cash Into Her Own Company's Pockets

    In an apparently massive breach of basic ethics and decency, the wife of Democratic Congressman Elijah Cumming re-routed hundreds of thousands of dollars from a nonprofit charity and into her own for-profit company. As the Daily Caller reports:
    House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummingss wife has funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars from her charity to her private for-profit organization, according to a previously undisclosed cost-sharing arrangement that multiple experts said raises red flags.

    Maya Rockeymoore Cummingss charity, the Center for Global Policy Solutions (CGPS), paid her for-profit venture, Global Policy Solutions LLC, over $250,000 in management fees between 2013 and 2015, according to the charitys audited financial statements covering those years. The management fees were paid in addition to a cost-sharing agreement where the charity pays for its share of equipment, personnel and other expenditures.

    Rockeymoore Cummingss charity is funded by companies with interests before her husbands congressional committee, according to the Washington Examiner.

    Its self-dealing. Its taking the charitys resources and turning them into personal profits, National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) investigator Tom Anderson told The Daily Caller News Foundation. IRS law doesnt allow a charity for this purpose. This isnt for the public interest, this is for her personal interest. You cant do that.
    Just another day in Washington apparently for America's self-serving Democrats.

    Cummings is dirty himself............... for one...... remember the IRS Tea Party scandal? ..... or as I call it, "The Obama Re-election Strategy".
    https://www.baltimoresun.com/enterta...415-story.html

    EXCERPT:
    "There's explosive new evidence," host Elizabeth Hasselbeck said, introducing a discussion of Cummings, "that he was leading the charge against conservatives the entire time" that he was part of a panel that was supposed to be investigating the IRS for allegedly treating conservative groups unfairly.
    Cummings role on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is ranking minority member. And the latest charge from the right is that his staff members requested information from the IRS on a conservative Texas group, essentially putting them on the radar for the IRS to pursue.
    "The House Oversight Committee chairman [California Republican Darrell Issa]," Hasselbeck told viewers, "actually produced emails from 2012 that show Lois Lerner accommodating the request from Elijah Cummings... providing information about an organization called True The Vote, a conservative organization that was singled out and scrutinized [by the IRS]."
    "So let me get this straight," co-host Steve Doocy said, as the screen filled with video of Cummings and Lerner. "What you just said, that guy right there, the top Democrat on the House oversight [committee], was coordinating with that woman, Lois Lerner, targeting a Texas conservative group called True The Vote. They were coordinating to crack down on them. That is so wrong, isn't it?"
    Lerner is the former director of the Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division at the Internal Revenue Service who has retired and taken the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination rather than testify in the House probe into whether the IRS targeted conservative groups in 2012 and denied some of them tax-exempt status.
