Rep. Cummings, Wife Face Questions About Her Nonprofit

An Internal Revenue Service complaint filed by an ethics watchdog group alleges a charity run by Rep. Elijah Cummings' wife took millions from groups and corporations that had business before his committee, the Washington Examiner reports.

Maya Rockeymoore Cummings is the chair of the Maryland Democratic Party and ran for governor last year. Rockeymoore also runs the nonprofit Center for Global Policy Solutions and the for-profit consultancy Global Policy Solutions LLC. The complaint filed by the National Legal and Policy Center claims the activities of the two overlapped.

The nonprofit, the Examiner reports, received more than $6.2 million in grants from backers including Google and Prutential, who have business interests before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which Cummings chairs. The largest benefactor was the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which is tied to Johnson & Johnson, which is also regulated by the committee. Cummings has been outspoken on the issue of drug price inflation in recent years, attempting to work with President Donald Trump on the matter.

In a statement to Maryland Matters, Rockeymoore Cummings said her consultancy got a childhood obesity prevention grant from RWJF in 2006, and that she didn't found her nonprofit until 2012. She and Cummings married in 2008.

"After the formation of CGPS, subsequent RWJF grant awards were applied for and received by the nonprofit entity because our childhood obesity prevention work was charitable in nature," she told the website.

While neither she nor her husband answered the Examiner's questions about the connections between her work and her husband's committee, she said in the statement that she never dealt with Johnson & Johnson and that Cummings' work on drug prices has nothing to do with her work on preventing childhood obesity.

Neither Cummings nor Rockeymoore would answer questions posed by the paper about the overlap between foundation donors and business before the committee. In her statement to Maryland Matters, Rockeymoore Cummings questioned the motives of the report.

Hmmm, according to Levin, Cummings was broke and owed back child support until he married this woman in 2008 and she started her 'for profit' LLC in 2012. I want to see at least the last 10 years of their tax returns. Subpoena their accountant. We have a right to know. It sounds a lot like Clinton Foundation redux.

No chance we'll know-he's a black dimocrat meaning he's invulnerable, at least while the dims control the House.

This was one of the things that brought former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick down. He established a "foundation" and spent some of the money doing altruistic things like putting down asphalt basketball courts (complete with photo op). But the real purpose of the foundation was to provide a living for his family members and others. During a hearing, they gave the game away by giving an audible gasp in the courtroom as the judge ordered all foundation assets frozen.

This is an old game. I have friends in Green Bay who believed that Brett Favre's wife used their foundation for the same type of thing.
