A watchdog group has filed an IRS complaint accusing Elijah Cummings, the chair of the House Oversite Committee, of deriving illegal personal benefit
from his position. It seems that a charity run by his wife has raked in millions of dollars in donations, much of it from companies with business
before Cummings' committee (like Google and JP Morgan). Also, it seems that Mr. Cummings used to be in debt, but these days seems to be rolling in
Hmmm. What does this remind me of? Of yeah, these guys.
So what you're implying is he gets money (lot's of it) in a round about way because of his powerful position? Maybe he watched one of those 'get out
of debt' DVD's. Maybe he and his wife don't eat out.
I find it completely plausible a person making $174k a year can amass a net wealth of millions of dollars in just a few years. It's simple math
really. $174,000 x 5 years = $25 million dollars (after taxes of course).
He would not be on the Oversight Committee if he was dishonest. I mean, where would he find time to shake down entities before his committee if all
his time is spent oversighting?

It's no more outrageous than Maxine
Waters (regularly listed as the most corrupt person in congress) being the head of the Financial Services Committee. Look her up on Wikipedia some
time. She grew up in a poor family, and held only menial jobs before she entered politics.
She currently lives in a mansion in Southern California. She's probably richer than everyone else in her poor-ass ghetto district combined. (Her
mansion isn't even within the boundaries of her district.) Where did she get that money? There doesn't seem to be any legitimate source for it.
Most of these longtime congressmen are corrupt, particularly CBC members. This is part of the long con. Elijah and his ilk buck dance and boot lick
for their white liberal slave masters. The corral the black vote. In return for selling out, they get to enrich themselves.
That swamp drain may have just gotten a bit of an opening. Elijah takes a shameful approach. I saw a clip where some black women for some women's
charity asked him what type of Negro he was? Holy w the? Might have been Ingraham or one of the Fox opinion jockey's. But who ever it was, said they
don't get to talk like that on their show. I was surprised to hear ow she defended herself saying basically he was a sellout in her estimation.
