Blue Dog Congressman Bishop Knew About Pigford Fraud


While I was conducting a video interview with a Georgia farmer named Eddie Slaughter a couple of weeks ago, he made a surprising and stunning allegation: that he had told his congressman about fraud in the multibillion dollar Pigford v. Glickman settlement and that the congressman responded by telling him that an investigation into Pigford would "shut it down." Mr. Slaughter's congressman -- a man you may not have heard much about despite his nearly two decades as a Blue Dog Democrat and Congressional Black Caucus member -- is Sanford Bishop. I followed up with Mr. Slaughter and I asked him ...


Bishop earns dishonorable mention in most corrupted report


Common sense should dictate that steering scholarship money intended for needy kids to your family and friends isn’t the most ethical thing to do. Nevertheless, Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-GA) handed out scholarships from the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF) to his relatives and others with ties to him and his wife. It’s no wonder he’s earned himself a dishonorable mention from Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) in its annual Most Corrupt Members of Congress report. “There are certainly plenty of worthy kids in Georgia’s 2nd ...

CONGRESSMAN BISHOP STATEMENT IN OPPOSITION TO HOUSE BILL SEEKING TO DISMANTLE THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) released the following statement concerning his vote against the misguided legislation to dismantle the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which passed the full U.S. House of Representatives yesterday in a vote of 217 to 213:   “I strongly opposed the House passage of the healthcare legislation to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. This bill jeopardizes the healthcare of Americans across the country. If this legislation is also approved by the Senate and signed into law, it is anticipated that 24 million Americans would lose their health insurance. This bill eliminates guaranteed coverage for essential health benefits, including emergency room care, prescription drug coverage, preventative care and chronic disease management, ambulatory patient services, inpatient hospitalization, newborn and maternity care, pediatric care, mental health care and addiction services, lab services, as well as rehabilitation services.

CONGRESSMAN BISHOP PLACES HIGH ON BIPARTISAN INDEX
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, the Lugar Center and Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy unveiled their most recent update to the annual Bipartisan Index, ranking Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) as the 16th most likely U.S. Representatives to work across party lines during the 114th Congress. The Index is a non-partisan tool, ranking all 535 members of Congress on their willingness to reach across the aisle by evaluating legislation sponsorship and co-sponsorship data. “It is an honor to be recognized on the Bipartisan Index, and I thank the Lugar Center and Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy for recognizing the importance of bipartisan cooperation,” said Congressman Bishop. “If we are to serve our districts effectively, we must be willing to work across the aisle. We must focus on our common goals, instead of our narrow divisions. And we must recognize that solving the difficult issues facing our country will require a col
CONGRESSMAN BISHOP STATEMENT ON PASSAGE OF FY2017 OMNIBUS APPROPRIATIONS BILL

Bishop, Jr. (GA-02), Ranking Member of the U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies, released the following statement regarding his support of the bipartisan Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 Omnibus Appropriations government spending bill. The bill was approved today by the full U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 309 to 118.   “Earlier today, the U.S. House of Representatives came together in a bipartisan manner to pass an Omnibus funding bill to avoid a government shutdown, an outcome that would have been damaging to communities and families across the country. This Omnibus legislation includes necessary funding for the defense and non-defense needs of our country.   “The Omnibus includes $400 million in Community Development Block Grant funding for disaster assistance. It increases funding for early childhood education, and on the other end, provides
