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 ON BUDGET RESOLUTION VOTE
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) released the following statement regarding his vote in opposition to the budget resolution due to its misplaced priorities and dubious economic assumptions. The bill was passed by the full U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 216 to 212.   “I could not support the budget resolution that was put to a vote earlier today. It would add trillions of dollars to the deficit through tax cuts for the wealthiest one percent, while increasing taxes on one in three middle income Americans.   “Further, the budget resolution also includes significant cuts to health care, education, child care, housing, nutrition assistance, transportation, and other vital programs. In particular, Medicare would be cut over the next decade by $473 billion and Medicaid by $1 trillion under this budget resolution.   “This budget resolution relies on unrealistic economic growth numbers to support its tax cut and deficit reduction

BISHOP LEADS LETTER IN SUPPORT OF MEDICAID TRANSPORTATION SERVICES
WASHINGTON, DC –  Earlier this week, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) led 10 other Members of Congress in a letter to the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee opposing legislation, H.R. 1394, that would allow states to eliminate Medicaid non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) for patients, including kidney dialysis patients. All signatories are members of the Blue Dog Coalition, a caucus of Democrats dedicated to fiscally-responsible policies.   The Members wrote in the letter:   “NEMT is an essential component of our nation’s health care delivery system, especially in rural areas. According to a recent Kaiser study, over half of Medicaid transportation services are utilized by patients with the highest burden of chronic diseases, including those diagnosed with cancer, HIV, mental health and substance abuse disorders, and end-stage renal disease requiring kidney dialysis three times a week.”   The Members continued
