WASHINGTON (AP) - No, Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings isn’t moonlighting as a ride-sharing driver.

The congressman said Tuesday that a daughter who recently graduated from college has been using his Honda with a congressional plate while working part time for a ride-sharing company to make extra money for school expenses.

The company, Lyft, gave her a sticker to put on the windshield. A photo of the car was submitted to the local blog Popville showing the sticker and the license plate, which carries parking privileges.

Cummings says he contacted his daughter, Adia, and she removed the tags. The congressman says he’s told her she can continue to use his car without the tag while she pursues full-time employment.

Cummings apologized in a statement for not removing the license plate before loaning the vehicle.
