Elijah Cumming in HOT Water Over Wife’s Non Profit

When you’re the the chairman of the House Oversight Committee like Elijah Cummings is, one would expect that you would do your best to make sure that your financial dealings are sound.


Unfortunately for Cummings, this is not so.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings is fighting back against allegations that his wife’s nonprofit organization violated its tax-exempt status and posed a potential conflict-of-interest with the work of his congressional panel.

Cummings, D-Md., blasted a complaint to the  Internal Revenue Service against his wife, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, who sits as chair of the Maryland Democratic Party and runs a nonprofit group and a for-profit consulting firm, as “baseless,” and partisan.

“Baseless” and “partisan?” This coming from the man who has accused President Trump of corruption?

The man who has been hounding the president for his tax returns?

As reported by the Washington Examiner:

Cummings recently subpoenaed Trump’s financial records, prompting the president to sue him in an effort to block the subpoena. Cummings struggled with serious financial problems after joining Congress over 20 years ago. His house was placed in foreclosure, at one point; he owed $30,000 in unpaid taxes to the IRS; and he was taken to court multiple times for thousands in unpaid debts. Cummings said his financial difficulties were due to his hefty child support payments.

Since marrying Rockeymoore 11 years ago, Cummings’ financial outlook has improved considerably, according to financial disclosure reports and property records. The couple currently owns two rental properties in Baltimore worth between $250,000 and $500,000 each, and last year, they sold their three-bedroom Victorian row house in northwest Washington, D.C. for $896,000.

So it sounds like Cummings married someone who knows how to make enough cash to pay for all of his previous alimony payments and then some.
