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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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
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.
have not seen a tempertantrum like that since i worked for the mental health department (worked with kids and teens hence the term tempertantrum)
looks like a guilty man trying to stave off the investigations ,sad that this is who we have representing some of us
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
(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?)

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
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.
