Maya Rockeymoore Cummings created a series of entities , similar in scope to the Clinton Foundation, in which a “not for profit” charity is created along with a private LCC.
when donations come in, a portion of those dollars are funneled back to the company — which of course is controlled by Maya Cummings.
Maya Rockeymoore Cummings’s charity, called the “Center for Global Policy Solutions” (CGPS), paid her for-profit venture, “Global Policy Solutions LLC”, over $250,000 in “management fees” between 2013 and 2015, according to the charity’s audited financial statements.
In addition to “management fees,” Cummings also received payments for “cost-sharing” in which the charity pays for its share of equipment, personnel, and other expenditures.
To complicate matters even further (which of course is by design). Rockeymoore Cummings’s “charity” is funded by companies that have dealings with her husband Rep. Elijah Cummings, which makes for a very cozy relationship for everyone concerned
National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) investigator Tom Anderson told The Daily Caller News Foundation, “It’s self-dealing. It’s taking the charity’s resources and turning them into personal profits.”
Adding, “IRS law doesn’t allow a charity for this purpose. This isn’t for the public interest; this is for her personal interest. You can’t do that.”
an additional complaint filed with the IRS by a watchdog group called The National Legal and Policy Center amended its original May 20thcomplaint against Maya Rockeymoore Cummings’s charity, alleging that the nonprofit’s along with her for-profit company may have “illegally benefited” her husband
Rockeymoore Cummings may have committed perjury by answering “no” in her charity’s 2015 tax return when asked if it conducted business with an entity owned by an officer or director of the charity.
“As a Director, Officer and Key Employee of CGPS at the same time she was the sole Governor of [Global Policy Solutions, LLC], Maya Rockeymoore Cummings should have answered ‘yes,’” the NLPC’s complaint states. “The false entry appears to be willful. Form 990 was signed by Maya Rockeymoore Cummings ‘under penalties of perjury.”
Scott Walter, the president of the conservative watchdog group Capital Research Center, said, “It’s a red flag for a powerful member like Elijah Cummings to have a family member receiving money from entities with issues before his powerful committee.”
Both the congressmen and his wife have refused to discuss the allegations with the Washington Examiner or explain the overlap between companies with interests before his committee and donors to his wife’s foundation.
The complaint also asks the IRS to investigate the “shared leadership,” “integrated operations,” and “shared address and physical facilities” of her two companies.
