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 Statement on Trump’s Discriminatory Ban of Transgender Service Members from U.S. Military
Rep. Meeks Statement on Trump’s Discriminatory Ban of Transgender Service Members from U.S. Military Washington, D.C.—Congressman Gregory W. Meeks released the following statement on President Trump banning transgender Americans from serving in the military: “On the sixty-ninth anniversary of President Harry S. Truman signing an executive order desegregating the military, President Donald J. Trump is taking our country back decades to a time of discrimination. We should judge prospective and current members of the world’s greatest military on their merits, not their self-identified gender. It is upsetting, shameful, and wholly un-American to place blanket bans on individuals based on their identities. "We recall the heroism and sacrifices of the Tuskegee Airmen, who wore the stripes and stars as they were discriminated against but nevertheless admirably served our nation in harm’s way in World War II. We are appalled that President Trump and Republicans would do such a di

It is crucial that Congress not abdicate that responsibility. We must work across the aisle and across both chambers in a responsible way, with an eye towards diplomacy. "Now, moving forward after the release, I'll be considering what exactly Congress could and should do to
