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 AWARDED THE DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY’S HIGHEST CIVILIAN HONOR
WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, the Acting Secretary of the Army, Robert M. Speer, presented Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) with the Army Distinguished Civilian Service Medal. The medal was awarded to the Congressman for his work on the Fiscal Year 2017 Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations bill, which among many other provisions included full funding for military family housing construction. This honor is the highest form of recognition that can be given by the Secretary of the Army to civilians. The Distinguished Civilian Service Award reflects extraordinary devotion to duty and extraordinary contributions to the effectiveness and efficiency of Department of the Army operations and the economy. To receive this award is considered extremely prestigious within the Department of the Army.  “It is with great humility that I receive this award,” said Congressman Bishop. “I thank our service members and their families who have served and continue to s
SECOND FEDERAL MAJOR DISASTER DECLARATION ISSUED FOR COUNTIES IN GEORGIA
ALBANY, GA – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) welcomed today’s federal major disaster declaration for additional counties in Middle and Southwest Georgia impacted by major storms and tornadoes on January 22, 2017. This declaration is distinct from yesterday’s declaration, which was in response to the storms that occurred on January 2, 2017. This new declaration opens up additional eligibility for federal disaster assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This second federal major disaster declaration specifically includes FEMA Individual Assistance for Berrien, Cook, Crisp, Dougherty, Turner, and Wilcox counties. FEMA Individual Assistance provides federal resources for impacted individuals and households, including financial assistance for temporary housing, home-repair, and damage to essential household items. This assistance also covers disaster-related childcare, medical, and essential vehicle expenses. FEMA is still reviewing which counties
CONGRESSMAN BISHOP WELCOMES NEW ARMY ORGANIZATIONS TO FORT BENNING
FORT BENNING, GA – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr., senior member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies, welcomes the U.S. Army's announcement that Fort Benning in Georgia will serve as the home for two new army organizations under the Training and Doctrine Command's Maneuver Center of Excellence (TRADOC). These two organizations include the Security Force Assistance (SFA) proponency office and the Military Advisor Training Academy (MATA). Designating both the SFA proponency office and MATA under Fort Benning’s Maneuver Center of Excellence supports the Army's preparedness in multinational operations. It also aligns the military training center with its operational component, which is already housed at Fort Benning. “I am excited that the Army has designated Fort Benning as the home of the Security Force Assistance proponency office and Military Advisor Training Academy,” said Congressman Bishop, “Fort

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) and Congressman Austin Scott (GA-08) welcomed today’s passage of the Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park Boundary Revision Act (H.R. 538) in the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill was approved by the full House of Representatives by vote of 396 to 8. It now awaits further action in the U.S. Senate. The legislation would expand the Ocmulgee National Monument into Georgia’s first national historical park. The bill, which was reintroduced for the 115th Congress on January 13, 2017, was previously approved by the House by voice vote during the 114th Congress, but was not considered by the full U.S. Senate prior to adjournment last year. “The Ocmulgee Mounds are truly a cultural and archeological treasure,” said Congressman Bishop. “The site of these historic mounds has been inhabited continuously for over 17,000 years, and the ceremonial mounds and earth-lodges that exist today were built over 1,000 years a
