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 PRESIDENT’S FY18 BUDGET REQUEST
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) issued the following statement concerning the release earlier today of President Donald Trump’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Budget Request:   “Budgets reflect values. They reflect a prioritization of scarce resources, and are a signal of what an administration does and does not care about.   “In today’s dangerous world, the President’s FY18 Budget Request shows the administration rightfully values our national defense and military readiness. However, it is a mistake to simply support our national defense at the expense of our country’s non-defense programs and agencies. Our non-defense programs directly support our nation’s economic and social vibrancy. They support the health, education, and nutrition of our citizens, and our service members. If we do not invest in the non-defense side of the budget, our nation will be weaker, and our military less able to do its job.   “Unfortunately, instead of making A

We wish you and your families a very safe Memorial Day.”
