Posted on 02/06/2014 10:20:39 PM PST by Nachum
This afternoon True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Elijah Cummings alleging the Congressmen intimidated her and and her group.
Rep. Elijah Cummings on three separate occasions sent letters from the House Oversight and Government Reform, stating that he had concerns and felt it necessary to open an investigation on True the Vote.
The Congressman also smeared True the Vote in several cable news interviews in 2012. In the hearing today, Cummings accused True the Vote of racism saying that they were trying to suppress the vote.
Catherine Engelbrecht was on with Megyn Kelly tonight:
Franky, Megyn, the thought of having to sit before my accuser and be silent in the face of what we did was unconscionable
He filed over a period of months in 2012, he filed three letters that he sent to me asserting that he was opening an investigation. He sent this on House Oversight and Government Reform letterhead.

Cummings belongs in prison for that.
Good on her. Never give up and never back down. You rock on, Kath.
He’ll get away with it.
I would think what goes around, comes around, but I am wondering if we will really ever get a chance to stick it to these SOBs? I do not expect to see a Pubbie president in my lifetime. I will be MOST surprised, if Hillary is not in the White Hut next. Things could go from bad, to worse. She has an enemies list too. I hate these rat bustards.
Guy belongs in a jail cell.
One day the shoe is going to be on the other foot and the left is going to get what is coming to them..they enjoy threatening Conservatives now using the IRS, but when a Republican is in the White House, I hope that karma is a b*tch and the left gets it in spades
Cummings is a thug.
Only that? Probably not by a long shot. Elijah Cummings is of a mindset that does not think the threat of prosecution is any kind of incentive for him to behave in a civilized or cordial manner. For him, being convicted of some sort of criminal behavior would completely justify his history of bad manners and boorish behavior.
Poor black man gets killed, goes to jail again. Don't you watch movies, where that is the plot line?
Definitely NOT the Magic Negro.
Can you say :” abuse of power ?”
He can get a cell with Jesse Jackson Jr. and they can watch the movie together.
Before you accuse me of racism, it's because they are both very ANGRY looking individuals, who seem to see only through the "racism everywhere" lenses.
The difference of course is that John Lewis actually has some bona fides when it comes to confronting REAL racism.
But both are liberal losers.
elijah needs to be taken to the river, and baptized into real humanity, hung upside down from a building to building clothesline to dry in the fresh breeze of a sunshiney day, until the clothespins rot and he drops his fresh roasted sunshiney butt to the welcoming projects asphalt below where he helped trap his own people for so many years.
“I do not expect to see a Pubbie president in my lifetime.”
And yet on 9/11/01 I thought we’d never see another dem. But we’ve had the radical, etc. Barack Obama for 2 sad terms now.
Oh well, maybe in politics it’s good to never say never.
I remember my mother kind of freaking out when Abe Beame (remember him?) got elected Mayor of NYC. “we’ve never had a Jewish mayor and now we’ll never have anything but!” was her response. (My mother, staunch Republican, NOT anti-Jewish, I never understood why that freaked her out so much). But, she was wrong.
Say what you want about the commie DeBlasio (like, for one example, he’s a commie), but he’s not Jewish.
Perhaps a Republican member of that committee should send similar letter to Media Matters and Organizing for America...
Someone should open a can of whoopass on Cummings and any crickets-chirping collectivists in Congress that support this scumbag.
Any representatives of the people speaking out?
He has erected a multitude of New Offices [Congress], and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

While channel surfing between the Olympics I caught today’s C-SPAN edition of this House committee hearing. The short of it, which is no surprize to anyone on this forum, is that the House committee members are highly polarized. The Repubs managed to stay civil, but the Dims could barely contain their fury, including Rep. Cummings. God bless the TEA Party witnesses and their counsels, but this administration under Jarrett/Holder will bury everything, with extreme prejudice.
Where do I send money to help this woman.
She’ll be financially ruined when these idiots can use taxpayer dollars to bludgeon people.
And increase his own bottom line in the process
I would gladly pay him Tuesday to hamburger him today.
LAW-LESS because Republican “leaders” are BALL-LESS!!! GO CATHERINE!!!
The Republicans control the House and the Ethics committee!
It is up to them to take on the case.The only way he gets away with this abuse of position is if Boehner ignores it.
Next comes the IRS...Count on it!
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
So this is more of the “War on Women” being waged by the democrats I hear so much about. The other day Biden was trying to put all single Moms into the unemployment lines. Says women should leave a job with health care and stay home and not make a decent living. Wants all women in poverty.
This damn “War on Women” the democrats are waging. Now Cummings wants to duke it out with this lady. Poor guy, he is no match.
“The weaponizing of government”
But re: Franky, Megyn,....
Megyn Kelly has a co-host now? :)
