When You've Lost Elijah Cummings…..

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), senior Democrat on the House Oversight Committee had some harsh words regarding the IRS’ “ideological profiling” of conservative groups.  “I think laws were probably broken, but at the least there have been some improper actions on the part of the IRS.”

Cummings also said he wanted an Oversight committee hearing, “I’d love for my committee to have a hearing on this. Because I have great concerns about what they knew, when they knew it, and what if anything they did about it, whether or not they were honest with the Congress.”

He went on to describe the scandal as “one of the most alarming things that I have ever seen.”

The administration is in bad shape if Cummings is abandoning the ship.
