“These are baseless allegations coming from a group funded, by the said of extreme-right mega-donors known for their political hit jobs,” Cummings said in a statement to Fox News. “I am confident that you will be exposed for what they really are – a made-up distraction from the important work on behalf of the Americans, such as the reduction of the skyrocketing prices for prescription drugs.”
The complaint, filed to the IRS, the conservative watchdog group the National Legal Policy Center, and first reported by the Washington Examiner that allegedly Rockeymoore Cummings’ non-Profit organization Center for Global Policy Solutions, it overlaps with your for-profit firm, Global Policy Solutions, LLC, and allegedly can be used to derive “illegal private advantage.”
