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.

...
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."


The non-profit received $6.2M between 2103 and 2016 from grants from companies such as Google, J.P Morgan and Prudential.

Johnson and Johnson (via their charitable org) was the largest contributor. They stopped contributing in 2017. They gave to both the non-profit ($5.2M) and they used the wife's consulting firm to the tune of $5.5 million of services.

Lately however,...

In recent months, Cummings has been a vocal opponent of Johnson & Johnson, targeting the company as part of the House Oversight Committee’s probe of drug price inflation.


Sounds like he is trying to drum up some business. But we will see where the complaint goes.

Of course, we can't possibly judge on the content of a persons character it is all about skin color. So say Dem leadership so shall it be.

Ethics Complaint Filed Against Rep. Cummings


Republicans complaining about ethics violations is deliciously ironic.
