Houston, TX – April 9, 2014 – Washington is reeling as Rep. Elijah Cummings’ (D-MD) true role in the IRS abuse scandal has come to light. Emails released by the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee, of which Cummings is the ranking member, show Cummings and his staff communicating with Lois Lerner while the IRS targeted True the Vote for abuse.

“Today’s committee action reveals what we knew all along. Partisan politics and the weaponization of government against opponents of this administration is real and continues,” said True the Vote president Catherine Engelbrecht. “Elijah Cummings has blocked the IRS abuse investigation all along. We now see clearly that two branches of government have colluded to target and silence private citizens.

“America has come to a tipping point,” Engelbrecht said. “No more lies. No more cover-ups. No more collusion. Enough is enough. Finally, we have a chance for the rule of law to be re-established, thanks to the bold efforts of Chairman Issa and Rep. Jordan.”

Engelbrecht added, “We filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Cummings in February. Today we’re amending that filing to include this latest revelation. As I have said in my testimony before Congress; I will not retreat, I will not surrender, I will not be intimidated. I will not ask Rep. Cummings, Lois Lerner, Barack Obama, or anyone else, for permission to exercise my constitutional rights.”

Maryland Corruption chronicles the rise to power from 1989 to present, of a couple of Baltimore street hustlers, Gilbert Sapperstein & Mark C. Sapperstein (Gilbert’s son) as they parlayed their personal and political ties to the MD. AG. Joseph Curran Jr., US Attorney Maryland, Lynne Battaglia (formerly head of MD. AG’s Criminal Div. under Curran) and now MD. AG. Douglas Gansler into the most powerful politically well connected & protected Transnational Organized Crime syndicate in Maryland, Florida, Washington D.C. and the USA.

This website also chronicles the efforts of Donald Stone, an inventor & small business owner who had his valuable patents and intellectual property stolen by the Mark C. & Gilbert Sapperstein Transnational Organized Crime Syndicate, with the direct help of the USDOJ and the political powerhouse Republican Party law firms, Foley & Lardner (Michael W. Grebe Legal counsel to RNC) and Miles & Stockbridge (Legal counsel to Burton’s House Oversight Committee) coupled with an endless number of fraudulent criminal schemes interwoven together over the past 18 years.

US President Obama declares war on the USA & International Crime Lords, Mark C. and Gilbert Sapperstein Transnational Organized Crime Syndicate

Profiling The “Cry Baby” Jewish Crime Lords, Mark C. Sapperstein and Gilbert Sapperstein as a Transnational Organized Crime Syndicate pose a direct threat to USA security and safety.

 The only difference is that Sapperstein’s business is video poker card games as opposed to slot machines. Slot machines pay out directly from the machine vs. the video poker card games where there is no direct payout. The payout on the poker card game machine is usually made by the bartender. The money taken in by the video poker games is usually divided between the owner of the machine (Gilbert Sapperstein) and the owner of the bar. Probably it was a condition of buying a liquor license from Gilbert Saperstein that they also install x number of Gilberts video poker games.

These video poker games can be pure cash revenue generators depending on their location. A single machine has the potential of generating as much as $150 to $250 per week (multiply this income by several hundred machines per week) pure unreported cash which the Sapperstein then launder through real estate purchases in various areas of Maryland, Florida and possibly numerous other states. I would also speculate that it was some of this money that was used to buy the cellular tower sites that were then bundled together and sold to Pinnacle Tower for the approx. $9 million
