Top Democrat's wife may have gained 'illegal private benefit' from his committee activities Top Democrat's wife may have gained 'illegal private benefit' from his committee activities 5/20/2019 ~ By Alana goodman 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." ~~~~~~ Interestingly, Cummings is trying to subpoena Trump’s financial records, prompting the president to sue him in an effort to block the subpoena. Meanwhile, one has to question how the Honorable Elijah Cummings has been able to amass such largess on a Congressman's salary when he was filing for bankruptcy and supporting an ex-wife and several women and supporting the children he sired both in and out of wedlock. Without any doubts there is a conflict of interest in several enterprises Ms. Rockeymoore-Cummings has been involved in. I guess the Honorable Mr. Cummings may have to answer to the ethics watchdog group and the IRS before he's able to get Trump's tax records.
