Corruption? Broke a.f. Elijah Cummings Suddenly Gets On His Feet


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.

Maybe this has something to do with it —

A charity run by the wife of Rep. Elijah Cummings received millions from special interest groups and corporations that had business before her husband’s committee and could have been used illegally, according to an IRS complaint filed by an ethics watchdog group.

Cummings, 68, a Maryland Democrat, is chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. His wife, Maya Rockeymoore, 48, is the chairman of the Maryland Democratic Party and briefly ran in the state’s gubernatorial race last year. The couple married in 2008. Cummings was once heavily in debt — in part due to hefty child support payments to his first wife and two other women he had children with — but his financial situation has improved considerably over the past decade.

Rockeymoore runs two entities, a nonprofit group called the Center for Global Policy Solutions and a for-profit consulting firm called Global Policy Solutions, LLC, whose operations appear to have overlapped, according to the IRS complaint filed by watchdog group the National Legal and Policy Center on Monday. The complaint states that the arrangement may have been used to derive “illegal private benefit.”

  1. The morons in Congress that are demanding Trump’s tax returns are going to be in for a rude awakening when the tables are turned on them. There will be a turning of the tables, won’t there? Damn, I’m tired of waiting!

  2. Oh looky, another privileged black man drunk on power has risen to great wealth. Will wonders never cease…

  3. Probably a lot easier and shorter to write about CBC members who are NOT thieves, crooks, cheaters and philanderers. And certainly more uplifting.

  4. When one is a fullonrapist, oops, I mean philanthropist, good things like vast amounts of wealth come back to ya. Just ask the Bill Clinton Foundation.

  5. Just think, if Elijah was a little cleaner and more articulate, he could be the 24th worthless democrat sonofabitch runnin’ for POTUS!

  6. The milk dud image is an especially nice touch.

    Forcibly deranged is right. The Congressional Black Caucus is a cesspool of corruption, graft and fraud. Politicians who honed their skills in lesser government positions in deep blue urban areas where corruption, graft and fraud are expected. They just brought it with them when they got to Congress.

    For them, Congress is a get-rich quick scheme. And it is so expected most of them don’t even hide what they’re doing.

  7. Adam Clayton Powell wants to come back from the grave and represent Harlem again since he wasn’t as corrupt as these punks on the Congressional Black Caucus (Congressional Black Caucasians like Rush calls them). He figures that he could still show them a corrupt trick or so.

  8. Calling on the Republicans sitting on Cummings committees to ask for an inquiry. I am not sure if the Senate can do something about this. If you want to make liberal heads explode, have Barr open an official investigation into Cummings as well as Biden’s son. Want to play hardball? Start investigating other CBC member like Maxine and her daughter’s campaign loot from those mailers. Don’t forger all the sexual harassment charges against CBC members,

    One women, who worked for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, has a whole blog post addressing this issue back in April:

  9. First, subpoena the entirety of his financial records
    Let’s see how much he’s willing to come up with
    While the PIG criticizes others unjustly

    Let’s see the PIG put on trial for his obvious


    Put the self-righteous PIG on trial !

  10. It’s said that there’s always someone for somebody. But THREE prior someones for this guy? And, since 2008, a FOURTH?! Oh, yeah, he’s got some explaining to do — for sure.

    “Paging Bill Barr, Dr. Barr, please pick up the white courtesy telephone.” (teeheehee)

  11. “…child support payments to his first wife and two other women he had children with…”

    how much has this reprobate benefited from the secret congressional hush fund? The fund that pays off sexual abuse victims and keeps the name of the offenders secret, that is.
    Make that info public, please.
