Rep Elijah Cummings' Wife's Refusal To Turn Over Records On Her Nonprofit Is ‘Illegal,' Expert Says
OK, sic the IRS on her "non-profit"
[Daily Caller] Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings' wife is breaking the law by not revealing financial disclosures about her nonprofit, an uninvolved legal expert told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Maya Rockeymoore Cummings runs a nonprofit called the Center for Global Policy Solutions that is closely intertwined with a for-profit consulting firm, Global Policy Solutions LLC. The nonprofit has received millions of dollars from groups with interests before the congressman's committee, potentially buying them favorable treatment, according to a complaint filed with the IRS by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC).

At least three different groups have requested the forms, and to each, Rockeymoore Cummings has refused, even when told that the law requires it. She refused on the phone to NLPC, and did not answer formal requests to view the forms from the Washington Examiner and TheDCNF.

"Wow. That's illegal," Sally Wagenmaker, a Chicago attorney who specializes in nonprofit tax law, told TheDCNF. "It's interesting and sad. You have the right to get them. The organization absolutely is required to provide the information, so to not do so would appear to be flaunting the law."

"As a family member of an elected official, we'd expect high-road, integrity and compliance. If anyone should be responding promptly, it should be her. He should be above approach."

Rockeymoore Cummings did not provide any reasoning for her refusal. The congressman later launched ad hominem attacks at the requesters, saying the Examiner and the NLPC leaned conservative, without explaining how that would negate any potential legal issues.

Nonprofits must publicly disclose information about their operations in exchange for being exempt from taxes, and the IRS form on which they disclose the information is called a Form 990.

"One of the policy reasons for disclosure is to be able to to illuminate conflict of interest, and the media's role is to help illuminate that: is she trying to hide information, is she being secretive, does she think she's above the law? And one of the ways that happens is through the required disclosure of 990s," Wagenmaker said.

Subject to your individual views of course.
