Well now even more skullduggery comes to light.

It seems that a U.S. Congressman Elijah Cummings (big D, Md.) apparently was contacting the IRS as well as a "target" Conservative group called -True the Vote- in hopes of getting their tax status dis-approved or something like that.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Ca.) has exposed some emails that seem to confirm the massive collusion.

Cummings was the same guy who blew a gasket a few weeks ago when Lois Lerner took the 5th again and Issa closed a hearing.

No wonder he's nervous because he knows all this criminal activity will come down soon enough.

Now it looks like he himself is one of those criminals.

Dirty dealing indeed.


[size]
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel's top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for non-profit status.


Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, non-profit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud.


The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official whom Issa's panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her involvement in targeting conservative groups.



Bombshells are in the air


more info....it's getting deep with that IRS scandal that according to Obama is not a scandal.

Cummings may have big legal problems with this...


Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing

Double exposures make nice 8x10 glossies...


WASHINGTON – A House panel voted along party lines today to refer Lois Lerner, the former IRS director of tax-exempt organizations, to the Justice Department for criminal investigation.

The House Oversight Committee is expected on Thursday to vote along party lines to charge Lerner with contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions before Congress on May 22, 2013, and as WND reported, again on March 5 at hearings titled “Targeting Americans for their Political Beliefs.”

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif, has argued Lerner effectively waived her Fifth Amendment right not to answer questions by reading an opening statement proclaiming her innocence before invoking her self-incrimination rights.

other related shenanigans ....


Even as the IRS faces growing heat over Lois G. Lerner and the tea party targeting scandal, a government watchdog said Wednesday it’s pursuing cases against three other tax agency employees and offices suspected of illegal political activity in support of President Obama and fellow Democrats.

Think he's a wee bit nervous about something ?

Don't worry pal, Lois will take some heat, but not all of it I bet when they offer her a "deal" to sing like a canary.

Pretty much explains his outrage! Don't ya think?

CYA?

Not that I like Issa, but if this is factual, then I got to give to Issa for not showing his cards!

I live, sadly, within the 7th district where this "man" "represents". I do not know much about the revelations the OP brought up. All I can say is that after months of writing/ e-mailing him regarding events in Fukushima, and receiving the exact same blather with no substance. I took to standing in front of his office in Catonsville. After a few days I finally caught him just to get a look at him and ask my question in person.

All I got from his was your an ***hole and he walked away.

Any man like that should be voted out. Sadly he has had the same spot going on 20 years. Any one else think career politicians are good for the country.

I didn't think so.

Tensions between Reps. Elijah Cummings and Darrell Issa are flaring once again over the GOP’s insistence on investigating discredited scandals.

Cummings, a Maryland Democrat and the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee, berated his Republican adversary during a press conference Wednesday for “relentlessly pursuing non-existent scandals for political purposes.”

Citing a laundry list of press reports calling out Issa for stretching the truth in casting the fallout of the terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya, as a supposed conspiracy, Cummings said Issa’s “reckless claims” were an embarrassment to Congress.

He is a joker indeed, it is painfully embarrassing to hear him speak and the animated defense he has put forth of Lerner is inappropriately apologetic at best and certainly not becoming of a congressman.

Issa failed.

He could NOT trace his FAKE scandal back to the White House as he claimed he would and could.

Now he is trying to implicate Cummings?????????

Talk about GRASPING AT STRAWS!!!!!

It's still a "Big D" DEMOCRAT Brit, which is more than enough to imply to his target audience (and Fox News') that all Democrats everywhere were involved somehow. Forget the fact that liberal and progressive groups were also "targeted" ... pish posh.

You know how those Democrats are ... everyone does, and anyway, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the Hindenburg, Black Death ... Obama has plenty to answer for, yessiree.

(If the guy's guilty of breaking the law, roast him, I say. But, let's let him be convicted first, maybe? Still America, yes?)

Cummings got himself into this situation.
No implication is needed.

They have the emails to prove what Cummings previously denied is true.

The IRS has been caught. They need to be disbanded.

You may want to go right to the race card.... that's all that's left.

Darl "I once saw an episode of 'Murder She Wrote' so I know how to investigate" Issa seems to be yet again jumping the gun with his accusations......


The correspondence does not indicate whether the IRS’ scrutiny of True the Vote’s application for tax exemption was prompted by Cummings’s inquiries about the group and the timing of the correspondence suggests it was not, but instead that Cummings may have modeled his inquiries on those the IRS had already made.


Seems the IRS investgated True the Vote BEFORE Cummings asked them for information.


In February 2012, Engelbrecht’s True the Vote received a letter from the IRS requesting more information about the group; one of Cummings’s letters, which Engelbrecht received in October 2012, contained questions that closely mirrored those posed by the IRS. Issa details them in his letter, strongly implying that Cummings based his letter on the one Engelbrecht had already received from the agency: Both requested information about the software True the Vote was using for voter registration, about the process the group used to train its employees, and about the vendors it used to obtain voter lists.

As a Texan, I'd like to know about True the Vote's shady activities.
