Stephen a letter(s) from Rep. Elijah Cummings to an accomplished and respected high ranking member of Congress like Darrell Issa asking for a massive investigation of abuses by mortgage servicing companies will go nowhere. It is far too broad and vague. In my view Cummings is one of the weakest minds in Congress. He is frequently looking for others to do the heavy lifting while he sits back cracking the whip asking when it will be ready; yearning for the day he can cherry pick perceived weak areas of their input with questions rather than facts to support his own position.
~ The correct way to do it is isolate much smaller areas of concern which you can supplement with research and clear facts then ask for an opinion or help on your specific issue. Cummings wants to put someone else in the trenches doing the work and make it appear he himself is energetically looking into the matter. I would characterize Rep. Elijah Cummings as a man who is very fortunate in the demographics of the district he "represents." IMO he is otherwise stewpit and L-A-Z-Y to the bone.
He is not taken seriously.
