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 ...

Delegation Colleagues Join Rep. Richmond in Calling for Additional Disaster Assistance for Tornado Victims
Washington, DC – In a letter sent to President Donald Trump, Congressmen Cedric Richmond (LA-02) and members of the Louisiana Congressional Delegation supported the appeal by Governor John Bel Edwards of the denial of Public Assistance (PA) for Orleans, Livingston, Ascension and St. James parishes as well as Individual Assistance (IA) for Ascension and St. James as a result of tornados that struck the state:   “The federal government has a responsibility to step up and support its citizens when they are in need,” said Rep.

Every available resource should be tapped to ensure that each person who suffered as a result of this disaster is made whole.”   The letter to President Trump can be found here.   Additional signatories include Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA), Congressman Steve Scalise (LA-01), and Congressman
Rep. Richmond on FEMA Oversight Committee Hearing
Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-02), released the following statement after Governor John Bel Edwards (D-LA) participated in the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing on the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) response to the Baton Rouge flood disaster: “I was disappointed to see that today's Oversight Committee hearing, which was supposed to look for solutions to problems with the flooding recovery, instead was another example of typical Washington partisanship," said Rep. Richmond. “The needs of flood victims in Louisiana are too great to be used as pawns in a political game.  “People are out of their homes, communities have been devastated, and this Congress has not sent the $2 billion in funding still needed to make affected families whole. Republican members of Congress, stoked by party politics, focused on attacking a Democratic Governor instead of improving our nation's disaster recovery process. It's time for my R
Rep. Richmond Mourns the Passing of Civil Rights Icon Lolis Edward Elie
Washington DC – Today, Rep. Richmond (LA-02) issued the following statement after attorney and national civil rights stalwart Lolis Edward Elie passed away: “It is a sad day in Louisiana as we mourn the loss of a loving father, tireless advocate, and champion for justice,” said Rep. Richmond. “A native of New Orleans and graduate of Dillard University and Loyola Law School, Lolis Edward Elie rose to become one of the nation’s pre-eminent civil rights attorneys. His legal practice, the law firm of Collins, Douglas, and Elie, became the most noteworthy firm in Louisiana for racial equality and played a key role in the integration of New Orleans. “In 1960, Elie and his colleagues, Nils Douglas and Robert Collins, represented the New Orleans chapter of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) following a sit-in campaign. The case, centered on CORE chapter President Rudy Lombard and three others who were arrested for staging a sit-in protest, paved the way for a watershed decisi
