Catherine Engelbrecht files formal ethics complaint against Elijiah Cummings for intimidation

democrat-logoTrue the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht has filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Elijah Cummings. Catherine Engelbrecht says that Rep. Cummings intimidated her and and her group. Elijiah Cummings appeared on some cable news shows (expect Fox News of course) to claim Engelbrecht is lying about intimidation from Elijiah Cummings. Last night Engelbrecht appeared on The Kelly File to explain her side of the story (something other cable news outfits haven’t done):

Catherine Engelbrecht files formal ethics complaint against Elijiah Cummings for intimidation

Can you guess what excuse Cummings used for Engelbrecht’s ethics complaint? If you guessed racism, you are right.

It’s about time these politicians, regardless if they are Republican or Democrat realize who they work for. They work for the American people, it’s not the other way around. The arrogance of today’s politicians (regardless of party) has gotten way out of hand.

    She is a liar and she has gone out of her way to suppress the minority vote, but you naive sheep want to believe whatever lies are thrown at you. Disgusting, lying traitors that don’t even try to research anything before spreading your lies! She is the epitome of everything wrong with this country. Discriminates against minorities and then tries to act like the victim when she is the big bully! She is going straight to hell along with any neanderthals that can’t do their due diligence, but have no problem spreading traitorous lies to the rest of the country!

      You are a drone spamming every IRS story. You can take your Obama Cyberwarrior badge and shove it directly up your ass.

        Sorry you can’t actually use your brain and tell the difference between facts and propaganda. And awesome that you have some stupid Obama nickname comment like all of the other brainless sheep. Can you think of anything with substance, or did your brain start to atrophy from lack of use? Not even a big fan of Obama, but it is so easy to pick apart the lame-ess propaganda attempts by the right-wingers (a.k.a. retards). If you do you research you won’t look like a fool, but you and your other conservative friends apparently have no problem with that!

          aka retards ? I thought that was reserved to Sarah Palins son… maybe you meant aka racists.. get your talking points straight!!

      On what do you base your assertion that she is a liar?

      • Jason

        She was running an organization that should have its members jailed instead of forced to pay taxes. They sent erroneous letters to minorities falsely claiming that there voting rights were in jeopardy. Is that the American way according to conservatives? Then she tries to act like a victim. Please, she should be happy that she isn’t in jail, and if you are religious, you know she is going straight to hell! A couple of tears and she has you sheep by the nads!

      And just by the way, being in favor of voter ID isn’t racist…assuming a black person is too stupid to get an ID is.

    I don’t know whether “True the Vote” has harmed minorities or prevented voter fraud. But I find it alarming nonetheless if what Engelbrecht claims is true – that after becoming politically active she was audited multiple times by four federal agencies. That she actually testified in front of Congress lends credence to her story. I have a really hard time believing she’s just making this up.

    That said, the level of hostility between Left and Right is dangerous. Both sides accuse the other of conspiracy – Cummings (in interviews on Oct 4 and 5, 2012) accused “True the Vote” of a widespread conspiracy to disenfranchise minority voters. Engelbrecht last week testified to government coordination to silence conservative groups. Even posts about this story are substantially far apart – with right-leaning blogs calling for investigation into the Administration, and left-leaning blogs calling for further action against Engelbrecht and Tea Party groups (one comment even noted “will some please ACTUALLY persecute them?”).

    I don’t know what ground there is to come together here. Is the next election going to be marked by more hostility, or even actual violence?

      What is apparent is that one side consistently tries to undermine the voting rights of minorities with many supposed tax-exempt organizations continually sending out political ads that don’t have one bit of truth to them. This should be illegal and considered libel. And these groups are so mad that someone noticed they were doing the devil’s work while the other side is mad that the right goes out of their way to harm Americans. Pretty easy to tell who is moral and who is full of it!

    OSHA visited them only once in 20 years, found serious violations at
    their machine shop, and even allowed them to negotiate down the fine.
    The
    shop was visited because it was “part of an OSHA initiative to inspect
    fabricated metal products manufacturers in Arkansas, Louisiana,
    Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico.” Fact checking Ron Johnson ‘victim’
    Catherine Engelbrecht’s OSHA claims :

    FBI – Called her, in 2010
    — regarding a suspected domestic terrorist at one of their King Street
    Patriots meetings. 2010. No FBI investigation on them. An inquiry. Even
    SHE admits that. And it had to do with her King Street Patriots arm,
    not True the Vote.

    “Five months after she filed for 501(c)(4)
    status for KSP, Engelbrecht says the FBI Domestic Terrorism Unit called
    her about one of the people who had attended a KSP group meeting. Five
    months after that, the FBI called her again to ask “how we were doing?” A
    month later on June 2011, she received another FBI general inquiry,
    which was followed by two more in November and December.”

    It
    should be noted as well — just before this a mysterious fire in a
    warehouse destroyed all of the voting equipment and machines in Houston,
    for 800 polling places – just before the election. Whether that had
    anything to do with it, not known.

    BATF: In 2009 the company secured a federal license to manufacture gun parts. Yes, a Class 7 Federal Firearms License.
    An
    ATF spokesperson told Local 2 since the business received its license
    in 2009, the Bureau needed to conduct an inspection within a three year
    period, as is routine for other similar businesses.

    TCEQ:(Texas
    Commission on Environmental Quality also inspected) Engelbrecht
    Manufacturing after officials received an anonymous complaint.”The TCEQ
    received a complaint against Engelbrecht Manufacturing in October,
    alleging improper handling of metal shavings. TCEQ investigated, and we
    are requiring the company to obtain required storm water permits and
    take other actions to prevent discharge of industrial solid waste. “The
    TCEQ can state without reservation that we were not directed to
    investigate Engelbrecht Manufacturing by any federal agency or any other
    agency.” A database maintained by the TCEQ shows this was the only
    inspection of Engelbrecht Manufacturing since it began operations.”
    Houston-area couple questions federal, state scrutiny | News – Home

    Considering
    she lied about the OSHA findings (claimed they were not serious)– and
    part of her objection was they visited her unannounced (duh, the point
    of an OSHA audit is to come unannounced) she lied about the AFT (their
    federal license to manufacture gun parts required a visit!), she lied
    about the TCEQ (made it sound like it was not resultant due to a
    complaint of their handling of metal shavings and required them to take
    care of industrial waste)– She lied about the non partisan nature of
    her CHARITY organization (gave $$ to RNC offshoot) and lied about True
    the Vote being in favor of Early Voting (see the testimony from the most
    recent hearing)– how do we know Catherine Engelbrecht isn’t lying
    about the IRS personal audits she says she is subject to? It could have
    been just a phone call about a number. It could have been she was
    actually cheating the government. She’s been proven to be less than
    honest.

    But we’ll never know. She won’t tell us, and the IRS can’t say.

    We CAN say — the IRS was absolutely doing their duty to scrutinize this group that was seeking CHARITY (501c3) status.

      These are all facts, therefore, every conservative on the board will dismiss them and continue to call this psycho a hero! And they try to warn liberals about propping up the wrong people because Christ will punish us. Gee, I wonder if they should take their own advice? Again, how can anybody take these right-wingers seriously when they don’t even bother to do their due diligence?

      • Libertarian Soldier

        What in the world are you babbling about? What does this have to do with the fact, that the “Liar” above makes excuses with no apologies for the tyranny of the democrats and their use of the force of the federal government to harass and intimidate people attempting to stop democrat voter election fraud?

        democrats, democrats, pants on fire!

    • Libertarian Soldier

      Wow! Serious violations? Really? Like, “…the forklift driver did not have his seat-belt on”?

      How do you restrictive, regressive, ignorant, backward farts dare call yourselves “liberal” or “progressive”? How do you call those concerned with liberty “right wingers”, “extreme” or “far right”?

      “Liar!” Good one! That’s definitely you if you can make excuses with no apologies for the tyranny of the democrats and their use of the force of the federal government to harass and intimidate people attempting to stop democrat voter election fraud! Oh, not 501-C(3); 501-C(4)!

      Explain why “it should be noted as well — just before this a mysterious fire in a warehouse destroyed all of the voting equipment and machines in Houston, for 800 polling places – just before the election. Whether that had
      anything to do with it, not known.”?

      How do you libel people doing good work with inuendo and inference that they are burning down voting stations, the very thing they are trying to legitimize against the democrat election and voter fraud? One has nothing, not a thing to do with the other! Shame on you, Liar!

      democrats, democrats, pants on fire!

      Check the due diligence regarding cummings! Remember? ‘This case is closed!’

      What about the emails between lerner and cummings? What about being hit by the alphabet of federal government within 5 days of objecting to cummings’ intimidation? What about identical sets of questions from the IRS, specifically lerner just 5 days after an accusatory, threatening letter from cummings’ office?

      F’ing democrats! You’re so f’ed up and have the country so f’ed up you don’t know how f’ed up you are and how bad you’ve damaged yourselves and the ethical people of the country. F’ing Liar! That’s a better description for you lying farts!

      Your points are overinflated about lying and less than honest. “how do we know Catherine Engelbrecht isn’t lying about the IRS personal audits she says she is subject to?”

      I’ll tell you how. Use lerner’s own words. She admitted to it in a planted question but she lied about it claiming it was ‘rougue agents form Cincinnati,’ a different office. Use her own emails to and from her staff and elijah the crook, cummings who denied any contact with lerner in a hearing. How do we know that she’s telling the truth? She’s charging cummings and lerner. First, they’re democrats! They are proven Liars! Liar!
