Dem Rep. Sent Three Threatening Letters to Conservative Activist Using Committee Letterhead (Video)

This afternoon True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Elijah Cummings alleging the Congressmen intimidated her and and her group.

Rep. Elijah Cummings on three separate occasions sent letters from the House Oversight and Government Reform, stating that he had concerns and felt it necessary to open an investigation on True the Vote.

The Congressman also smeared True the Vote in several cable news interviews in 2012.  In the hearing today, Cummings accused True the Vote of racism saying that they were trying to suppress the vote.

Catherine Engelbrecht was on with Megyn Kelly tonight:

“Franky, Megyn, the thought of having to sit before my accuser and be silent in the face of what we did was unconscionable… He filed over a period of months in 2012, he filed three letters that he sent to me asserting that he was opening an investigation. He sent this on House Oversight and Government Reform letterhead.”
