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 in Opposition to the House’s 21st Century Flood Reform Act
  Rep. Meeks Statement in Opposition to the House’s 21st Century Flood Reform Act Washington, D.C.—Congressman Meeks released the following statement after the House of Representatives voted 237-189 in favor of H.R. 2874, the 21st Century Flood Reform Act: “Today, I opposed H.R. 2874, because it would make flood insurance less affordable for New Yorkers, especially residents in Queens and Nassau County. “If the House plan were to become law, 83 percent of one-to-four person families in New York would see their premiums increase by at least 6.5 percent in one year.  The House plan would kick low- and moderate-income homeowners to the curb by removing lower value homes from the National Flood Insurance Program. Furthermore, other than raising premiums on already-struggling policyholders, the bill does nothing to cover the National Flood Insurance Program’s $24.6 billion debt, which is unsustainable considering the increased frequency of severe storms.

Rep. Meeks Statement on the Resignation of CFPB Director Richard Cordray
Rep. Meeks Statement on the Resignation of CFPB Director Richard Cordray Washington, D.C.—Congressman Meeks released the following statement after Richard Cordray announced his resignation as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau: “I am saddened by the news of Director Cordray’s departure from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.  At the helm of the CFPB, Cordray was a fierce advocate for consumer rights and protections.  Under his direction the CFPB helped reshape the real estate, bank loan, credit card, and student loan industries to ensure people in need of financial services had an institution that would go to bat for them.  “Through regulation and litigation, the CFPB returned nearly $12 billion to 29 million consumers.  On behalf of my constituents and consumers everywhere, I thank Director Cordray for his service and I will do everything I can to ensure that his legacy at the CFPB will continue. I urge President Trump to appoint a strong consu
