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 ...

BISHOP HEARS TESTIMONY FROM LAWMAKERS DURING HOUSE AGRICULTURE APPROPRIATIONS MEMBERS’ DAY HEARING
WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, led by Ranking Member Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) and Chairman Robert B. Aderholt (AL-04), hosted a Members’ Day hearing to receive testimony from other Members of Congress on their agriculture priorities for the 115th Congress. Turnout was robust and included ten Democrats and twelve Republicans. During the hearing, Members highlighted key agriculture programs affecting both rural and urban communities, including rural housing services, Farm Service Agency loans, adjusting eligibility criteria for rural programs, and Zika virus diagnostic development at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Members also spoke out on the need to ensure adequate funding for the Agriculture Research Service (ARS) and National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), as well as the importance of funding vital food safety nets, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Special Supplemen
BISHOP STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT’S ADDRESS TO A JOINT SESSION OF CONGRESS
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s address to a Joint Session of Congress: “During last night’s address, the President spoke of unity. He spoke of protecting our national security. He spoke of rebuilding our infrastructure, creating new jobs, strengthening our health and child care systems, and encouraging women in entrepreneurship. These are laudable goals and vital issues that must be addressed. “However, the administration’s actions so far are not aligned with many of the promises we heard last night. The administration’s plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act would leave hundreds of thousands of Georgians without health care. The administration’s actions on immigration have stoked fear and chaos around the country and damaged local law enforcement’s ability to build in-roads with many of the communities they serve. The administration’s budget would slash funding for child care,
CONGRESSMEN BISHOP AND FERGUSON PRAISE ARMY DECISION TO STATION A NEW SECURITY FORCE ASSISTANCE BRIGADE AT FORT BENNING
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop Jr. (GA-02) and Congressman Drew Ferguson (GA-03) praised the United States Army’s decision to add a Security Force Assistance (SFA) Brigade to Fort Benning. This brigade will add 500 positions to Fort Benning and is in addition to the 85 positions that were announced last week. “It is a great day for Columbus and Southwest Georgia,” said Congressman Bishop. “The addition of a Security Force Assistance Brigade further enhances the already vital role that Fort Benning has in global operations. The Army's decision underscores Fort Benning’s ability to efficiently develop and provide support for our foreign allies, and highlights Fort Benning’s role as a key national security asset." “This announcement is a testament to Fort Benning’s key role as one of our nation’s most valuable Army bases,” said Ferguson. “For almost a hundred years, Fort Benning has been an anchor to the greater Columbus community, and I pr
CONGRESSMAN BISHOP STATEMENT ON HOUSE REPUBLICAN HEALTHCARE PROPOSAL
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) released the following statement concerning the House Republican bill to dismantle the Affordable Care Act (ACA): “With the enactment of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010, the United States joined the rest of the industrialized world in providing health care coverage for its citizens,” said Congressman Bishop. “In Georgia’s 2nd Congressional District, the implementation of the ACA has led to a 4.7% drop in the uninsured rate. It has guaranteed that the over 550,000 individuals with health insurance in the district, both public and private, have access to preventive services like cancer screenings and flu shots without any co-pay. It has provided all policyholders with important consumer protections such as coverage for pre-existing conditions and prohibitions on lifetime limits, and it has helped close the Medicare prescription drug donut hole.”  “Instead of working to improve on the progress we hav
