Wonder what those tags cost the taxpayer?
Great! What we have here is another crooked liberal lawmaker allowing American tax dollars for his daughter’s personal uses. I am sure Rep. Elijah Cummings can afford the Howard University costs for his daughter’s living expenses. The public already doesn’t trust Cummings and his ilk, now this?
Isn’t this the member of a congressional oversight committee investigating Benghazi? Isn’t he the one who keeps shouting, “there is no there, there!” Well here is the “There.” Your daughter thinks it’s okay to use daddies car to earn extra money, sporting “Privileged person plates” You cannot make this crap up!
But then again is anyone surprised? When your profession is to screw the American Taxpayer at every turn for your gain it gets so comfortable you start doing stupid things. Here’s a PERFECT example.
No, that’s not Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings driving for Lyft in his downtime.
But his daughter, Adia, who borrowed her father’s car, may have made her passengers feel like VIPs since the black Honda she uses was sporting official congressional license plates.
Lyft is a company that provides rides to subscribers who summon a car to pick them up using an app on their phone.
The Washington Post first reported that Cummings did lend his car to his daughter, who was a student at Howard University.
Someone posted a picture of the car with a Lyft sticker on a D.C. blog called “Popville” and asked which member of Congress worked for the company. The picture showed the vehicle with Maryland plates that read “US Congress” and the number “7,” which designates Cummings’ district in Baltimore, and the “Reliable Sources” gossip column at the Post solved the mystery.
Cummings explained the situation in a statement to CNN.
“In an effort to earn some extra money to pay her expenses at school, she signed up for a part-time position with one of the ride-sharing companies. They, in turn, gave her a sticker to apply to the windshield of the car,” Cummings said.
The congressman, who is the top-ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee and another panel investigating the attacks in Benghazi, says after he spoke with his daughter, the congressional tags have been removed. He took responsibility for the situation, saying, “I apologize for not having removed the license plate before loaning the vehicle to her.”
Hey liberals, Don’t accept bad behavior just because you like him. Bad behavior is bad. Admonish him and move on. If you love your kid and he steals you don’t look the other way you punish him and still love him and move on.
If there had been an accident the taxpayers would have paid and possibly been sued. And tell me why are we providing him a car if it is just sitting in the driveway to be used by his daughter as a taxi? Love how Democrats piss away my tax dollars.
