Issa hammers Cummings for using Abramoff


Top House oversight committee Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings wants to attack former lobbyist Jack Abramoff — again — in a Congressional hearing. While admitting Abramoff successfully completed his “three-and-a-half year sentence” in prison, and pointing out that the House oversight committee has, for years, “worked in a bipartisan manner to investigate the illegal activities of Mr. Abramoff and his associates, as well as the implications of his actions on the transparent and effective operation of our government,” Cummings wants to again dredge up the matter ...


Elijah Cummings, the Homeowner Crusader


For President Barack Obama, fixing the collapsed housing market may be a part of political calculus, a key factor in winning a second term. For Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the fight to keep people in their homes and out of foreclosure is a personal mission. “I feel it just sitting here and talking to you — it’s emotion,” Cummings told POLITICO in an interview last week. “When I walk out of my door every morning, five of 15 homes on the other side of the street are in foreclosure. … I see the devastation it brings on people every day.” And ...


Elijah Cummings: Obama Needs To 'Fight Harder'


Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), responding to the high unemployment rates in the black community, said that African-Americans feel President Barack Obama "needs to fight, and fight harder." “We are totally frustrated, and people need to know that the president feels their pain,” Cummings, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, told CNN's Candy Crowley on “State of the Union” Sunday. “Almost every African-American person I spoke to said he needs to fight, and fight harder,” Cummings said. Last week, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) blasted Obama for ...

Cummings Statement on Airstrikes in Syria
Washington, D.C. (Apr. 7, 2017) — Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement after President Donald J. Trump ordered the U.S. military to conduct airstrikes on a military airfield in Syria:  “This week the world got a glimpse into the fear and horror that millions of Syrians live with every day.  The Assad regime’s most recent use of chemical weapons against his own people—including many young children—is a crime against humanity.  While last night’s airstrikes in Syria were a proportional response to an unforgivable crime, missiles alone will not resolve the conflict in Syria.  I am calling on President Trump to immediately rescind his ban on Syrian refugees and to share his strategy regarding the civil war in Syria with Congress and with the American people.  We must have an honest, open debate on how to best address this complex issue.  The stakes are too high.”  
Cummings, Senate and House Democrats Introduce Paycheck Fairness Act on Equal Pay Day
Washington, D.C. (Apr. 4, 2017)—Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) joined Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) to introduce the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would strengthen the Equal Pay Act of 1963 by allowing women to challenge pay discrimination and hold employers accountable.  U.S. Senator Patty Murray introduced the companion legislation in the Senate.“I am proud to join Congresswoman DeLauro and Senator Murray to introduce this bill, which would help us finally close the wage gap,” Cummings said. “We should not be a country that allows employers to pay women less than their male co-workers for doing the same job.”  Equal Pay Day symbolizes the date when women’s wages finally catch up to what men were paid in the previous year. Despite making up half the workforce, more than five decades after the passage of the Equal Pay Act of 1963, American women still make only 80 cents, on average, for every dollar earned by a man. The gap is even wider for women of col
Baltimore Delegation Calls on Attorney General Sessions to Rescind Request to Delay Baltimore Consent Decree
Washington, D.C. (Apr. 4, 2017)— Today, U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen with Congressmen Elijah E. Cummings, Dutch Ruppersberger and John Sarbanes (all D-Md.) wrote to Attorney General Jeff Sessions objecting to the request by the U.S. Department of Justice to delay finalizing the consent decree that was agreed to by DOJ and the City of Baltimore to address systemic civil rights violations. The agreement followed an exhaustive federal pattern-and-practice investigation. “We are gravely concerned that the Justice Department will retreat from its obligation to protect the federal civil rights of the citizens of Baltimore,” the Members wrote in their letter. “We urge the Justice Department to withdraw its request for a delay in proceedings and to continue working with Baltimore City and BPD as scheduled. We stand ready as a Congressional delegation to work closely with the Justice Department to rebuild public trust in the Baltimore City Police Department through the
Baltimore Delegation Statement on Denial of DOJ Attempt to Delay Implementation of Consent Decree with BPD
Washington, D.C. (Apr. 5, 2017) — Today, U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen and Congressmen Elijah E. Cummings, Dutch Ruppersberger and John Sarbanes (all D-MD) issued the following statement after Judge James Bredar denied the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) request for a 90-day continuance on the implementation of the consent decree between DOJ and the Baltimore City Police Department: “This ruling is a win for the people of Baltimore.  The Justice Department’s attempt to delay the implementation of the consent decree would have greatly impeded our progress in rebuilding trust between the community and police.  The consent decree has the strong support of both the Mayor and Police Commissioner of Baltimore.” “Last year’s ‘pattern or practice’ report on BPD, which detailed years of systemic civil rights violations, was a call to action for everyone in Baltimore. “We are now on the path to much-needed and long-overdue reforms, which we hope will make B
