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 IN OPPOSITION TO HOUSE TAX LEGISLATION
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) issued the following statement concerning his vote in opposition to the House’s misguided tax legislation, which would saddle the nation with crippling debt and provide little to no tax relief for thousands of residents of Georgia’s Second Congressional District. The bill was approved yesterday by the full House of Representatives in a vote of 227 to 205.   “I could not in good conscience vote in support of the tax reform legislation considered yesterday by the U.S. House of Representatives. Tax reform must make our tax code more equitable, less complex, and not significantly add to the budget deficit. Unfortunately, the tax legislation approved by the House yesterday does not fulfill these requirements. It would shift the tax burden from wealthy taxpayers to middle income families by increasing taxes for 36 million middle income households.   “The House legislation would lower or eliminate many tax credits and

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) voted in support of H.R. 2810, the National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2018, which would provide $700 billion for our national defense. The legislation contains provisions that would increase the current active troop level by more than 16,000. The bill also includes a 2.4% pay raise for all military personnel.   “This legislation ensures that our military remains vibrant and strong,” said Congressman Bishop. “As a member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veteran Affairs, I am particularly pleased that the legislation authorizes $10.7 billion for construction within the Department of Defense to strengthen our military infrastructure both home and abroad.”   The measure also prohibits the Defense Secretary from reducing the basic allowance for housing and authorizes the Department to reimburse a service member up to $500 for a spouse's expenses related to obtai
