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 ...

RANKING MEMBER SANFORD BISHOP JOINS CONGRESSMAN JIMMY PANETTA IN AGRICULTURE TOUR OF CENTRAL COAST OF CALIFORNIA
SALINAS, CA – This week, Congressman Sanford Bishop (GA-02), Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, joined Congressman Jimmy Panetta (CA-20) in the central coast of California to tour agriculture facilities, meet with producers and farmworkers, and learn more about the over 100 specialty crops grown in California’s 20th congressional district.   “As the representative of the Salad Bowl of the World, I believe it is critical to share with my colleagues the critical work of our growers, shippers, and farmworkers. I thank Ranking Member Bishop for coming to Central Coast to gain a deeper understanding of the uniqueness, diversity, and expansiveness of our agriculture industry,” said Congressman Panetta. “I look forward to working together to advocate for the resources and funding for programs that our producers, community organizations, and research entities need to thrive.”   "Regardless of dietary preferences or political affiliations,
CONGRESSMAN BISHOP STATEMENT ON ADMINISTRATION PLAN TO END DACA
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) released the following statement regarding the administration’s plan to rescind Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).     “DACA provides temporary relief from deportation as well as work authorization to those who were brought to the United States as children, many of whom contribute to their communities and know no other country but the United States as home. These individuals include talented students, hard-working high school graduates, and veterans who pose no threat to public safety. Going after these individuals would consume much-needed resources needed by law enforcement to target those who would do America harm.   “By rescinding DACA, the administration is dragging us further and further away from necessary and common-sense immigration reform. I call for Congress to come together on a long-term, compassionate, and comprehensive solution to our broken immigration system.”  
CONGRESSMAN BISHOP STATEMENT ON HARVEY AID PACKAGE
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) released the following statement regarding his vote in support of a legislative package providing disaster relief for areas impacted by Hurricane Harvey.   The aid package provides $7.4 billion for the Federal Emergency Management Agency and $450 million for the Small Business Administration, and is a significant first step in addressing a particularly active hurricane season. The legislation passed the full U.S. House of Representatives in a vote of 419 to 3.   “One of the core duties of government is to protect its citizenry. When disaster strikes, displacing families and throwing communities into turmoil, it is imperative that we take swift action and offer a helping hand. I have seen firsthand the destruction caused by flooding and storms in my home in Albany, Georgia, and I cannot stand idly by as my fellow Americans in the Gulf Coast face the challenge of rebuilding after Hurricane Harvey.   “I st

Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) released the following statement regarding his support of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Minibus Appropriations government spending bill, which includes funding for the Department of Defense, the Department of Veteran Affairs, the Legislative Branch, and for energy and water development. The bill was passed by the full U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 235 to 192.   “One of the most fundamental duties of the United States Congress is to ensure that our armed forces are capable of defending and protecting our nation. It is vital that we adequately support our defense and give our troops the tools they need to keep us safe. Further, we must be sure to fulfill our commitments to our veterans. For over two decades, I have consistently supported legislation that has strengthened our military and protected our veterans. This bill is no exception.   “There are many provisions in this minibus bill that I suppor
