Meeks apparently had not yet received a copy of the Complaint at the time he wrote a column published last week in the Queens (New York) Tribune. In the column, Meeks characterized us as "right wing" and (again) blamed us for his ethics problems. I can't wait to see his reaction to our new Complaint. In the Tribune, Meeks omitted mention of his friend Edul Ahmad, from whom he secured an unsecured and unreported $40,000 ...

McConnell Urging No Vote on Graham-Cassidy without CBO Score Washington, D.C.—Congressman Meeks led a letter (below) with 57 House Democrats to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, urging him and Senate Republicans to wait to vote on the Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson bill until the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has analyzed its full impact and cost.

The fifty-eight Members of Congress who signed this letter are urging Senator McConnell to see the error in his ways and heed the calls from Democrats, the membe

Congressman Meeks statement on recent New York Post articles
STATEMENT BY CONGRESSMAN GREGORY MEEKS My staff and I have been understanding and respectful of the role that media plays in delivering information to the public. We have been forthcoming, transparent and have responded to all of the New York Post’s requests in a timely manner. However, the New York Post is not delivering fair, honest or balanced reporting and is only interested in smearing the name of their public official of choice.  I will work with any credible news organization on fair and balanced reporting. The New York Post is neither fair nor balanced and therefore will no longer receive the courtesy of my assistance. To hear more of Congressman Meeks response, please click on the following link for an excerpt from the Errol Louis Radio Show.
