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 ...

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) voted in support of H.R. 5325, a Continuing Resolution that funds the federal government past September 30. The legislation continues funding for government operations through December 9, 2016, with the exception of military construction and the Department of Veteran Affairs, which is provided full fiscal year 2017 funding. The legislation also includes $1.1 billion in funding to combat the Zika virus and $500 million to assist communities impacted by recent floods. “I am heartened that Congress was able to come together to avert a government shutdown that would have negatively and dramatically harmed our economy. As Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veteran Affairs, I am particularly pleased that the legislation includes full year funding for construction within the Department of Defense and full year funding for the VA and its programs for our nation’s veterans.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) released the following statement today in recognition of the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture this Saturday, September 24: “Today, I would like to take a moment to pay special recognition to an important, forthcoming moment in the American experience. On Saturday, September 24, the Smithsonian will be opening its 19th museum, the National Museum of African American History and Culture. This museum will illuminate the dark pain of the past and also celebrate the tremendous progress of a dynamic people with a complex history. “Built on the National Mall, upon what is colloquially referred to as America’s front yard, this museum has been a dream more than one-hundred years in the making. The initial discussions began in 1915 with the Grand Army of the Republic and the Committee of Colored Citizens – a civil war veterans group that called for a museum to honor Black veterans and
Mr. Bishop of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize a talented businessman, philanthropist, and civil rights activist, Dr. Robert Lee Wright, who served as Chairman of the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) Plan for Action Presidential Commission. Dr. Wright played an integral role in the development of this nation’s greatest tribute to the tragic but triumphant story of the African-American community. The National Museum of African American History and Culture is a crucial patch that has finally and rightfully been sewn into the quilt of American history. Though the seams may be laden by injustice and oppression, the focal point is the recognition of the vital role African Americans played in the establishment and evolution of this nation and its culture, all of which would not be possible without the valuable contributions of Dr. Robert Wright. Dr. Wright’s remarkable journey began in a segregated Columbus, Georgia sweltering with the heat
