Rep. Gregory Meeks Assailed by NY Post as Meeks Attacks NLPC

The New York Postpublished an editorial titled "Greg Meeks - Again" regarding the allegations in our Complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on October 28. 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 ...

Rep. Meeks Blasts Trump’s Nomination of Sen. Sessions for AG
Rep. Meeks Blasts Trump’s Nomination of Sen. Sessions for AG Queens, New York—This morning, U.S. Representative Gregory W. Meeks issued the following statement after President-elect Donald Trump announced his nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama to be his Attorney General: "Trump’s nomination of Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General is deeply troubling. Trump has asked a man to lead the Justice Department who has a pattern of supporting an unfair, imperfect, and punitive criminal justice system at a time when most Republicans and Democrats agree that our criminal justice system needs to be fairer, more just, and more rehabilitative. “Senator Sessions was nominated in the 1980s for federal judge but he could not obtain Senate confirmation due to his history of racial insensitivity. It came to light that Sessions called the NAACP and ACLU ‘un-American’ and ‘communist-inspired’ and he’s the same man who once remarked that the Ku Klux Klan was “
