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.

To the veterans across America, whether you served in Europe during the World Wars, in Asia during the Korean or Vietnam Wars, in the Middle East, or elsewhere; whether you served during a period of conflict or peace time; whether you served at home or in lands far away; you have served honorably to uphold the ideals upon which the United States was built. “Your service to protect the freedoms we hold dear is especially important as we reflect on the events of the past week by whi
BISHOP STATEMENT ON SHOOTING IN PEACH COUNTY
PEACH COUNTY, GA – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) released the following statement regarding the recent shooting in Peach County, Georgia: “My deepest condolences go out to the family of the Peach County deputy, Patrick Sondon, who lost his life Sunday while serving his community.

A second Peach County deputy was wounded in the same incident and remains in critical condition. “Officers from the Peach County Sheriff’s Office, and from all of our law enforcement agencies across the region and country, put their lives on the line every day to serve and protect our communities.

My heart goes out to all who have been touched by this tragic event, and I pray for the full recovery of the wounded deputy.”
