GOP 'Sinful' To Tie Disaster Aid To Spending Cuts


As East Coasters brace for what some say will be a historic pummel by Hurricane Irene, at least one lawmaker is fuming over a requirement by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) that any potential emergency disaster aid be offset by spending cuts. "It is sinful to require us to cut somewhere ... in order to provide emergency disaster assistance for American citizens," Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) told The Huffington Post on Friday. The Louisiana Democrat pointed out that this weekend is the sixth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated his district and cost the federal ...


Richmond and Cincinnati Mayor Mallory Blast Republicans


On a press conference call organized by the Democratic National Committee, Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-2) and Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory blasted the GOP for their willingness to raise taxes on the middle class and the impact it would have on African Americans. Last year, President Obama lowered the payroll tax, benefitting 98% of Americans. The President wants to keep that rate low, but Republicans in Congress are opposed to the President's efforts and want to raise taxes on nearly 160 million Americans. This will have an adverse effect on African American families who have benefited ...


Richmond still owes more than $50,000 in campaign expenses


It goes without saying that a successful candidate owes a debt of gratitude to those who helped get him elected. In the case of freshman Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-New Orleans, it takes a more tangible form in the more than $50,000 he still owes to some of those consultants and others who worked on his past campaigns. Richmond's campaign debt of $51,277.82 as of the end of September includes $7,000 owed to Third Coast Research, a Chicago opposition research firm that went to work for one of his opponents when the Richmond campaign didn't pay its bill, and $1,446.50 owed to Deep South ...

Rep. Richmond on President Trump’s Executive Order to Institute a ‘Muslim Ban’
Washington, DC – Today, Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Chairman, Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-02), released the following statement after President Trump signed orders to make it more difficult for families, including refugees, to enter the United States based on their religion or religious heritage: “This unjust, counterproductive, and immoral Executive Order violates the U.S. Constitution and goes against our fundamental values,” said Rep. Richmond. “This is not only my opinion but the view of attorneys general across the country. President Trump’s ban has shut the door on many of our allies, including brave men and women who have risked their lives to work with American troops. “ “The United States has stood as a beacon of freedom and inspiration. We welcome the tired, poor, and huddled masses yearning to breathe free to our shores. This president has chosen to re-brand our country as one that rejects these principles.

Rep. Richmond Responds to President Trump’s Latest Selection for the DOJ Civil Rights Division
Washington, DC – Today, Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Chairman, Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-02), released the following statement in response to reports that Donald Trump selected attorney John Gore as Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the Civil Rights Division for the Department of Justice (DOJ): “President Trump’s pick for a senior leadership position in the civil rights division of DOJ is a slap in the face to what the division has represented for over 50 years,” said Rep. Richmond. “Starting with his nomination of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, the President has sent a clear message that he intends to trample on the rights of minority groups and leave no place for recourse.” “John Gore has a long record of defending Republican voter suppression and redistricting laws, including maps that federal courts determined were drawn to dilute the voting power of African-Americans.” “Voting is a fundamental right protected by the Constitution.
