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 WELCOMES USDA SUSPENSION OF BEEF IMPORTS FROM BRAZIL DUE TO SAFETY CONCERNS
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (D-GA) welcomes the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) announcement that all beef imports from Brazil to the U.S. will be halted until further notice due to safety concerns.   “Food safety is a serious issue and is of the utmost importance,” said Congressman Bishop. “Although Brazil is a significant trading partner, the first priority should always be the safety of American consumers. I commend Secretary Perdue for taking decisive action to protect the integrity of our food supply.”   This suspension of Brazilian beef imports comes after the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) documented increased inspection failure rates of Brazilian meat products. Since March 2017, FSIS has inspected all Brazilian meat products arriving from Brazil and has refused entry to 11 percent of all Brazilian fresh beef products. This is significantly higher than the average rejection rate of one percent for global shipm
RANKING MEMBER BISHOP’S STATEMENT ON SUBCOMMITTEE PASSAGE OF FY 2018 AGRICULTURE APPROPRIATIONS BILL
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02), Ranking Member of the U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies, released the following statement regarding the subcommittee's passage of its Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 spending bill:   “The agriculture appropriations bill is of vital importance to rural communities and farmers, ranchers, and producers across the nation. It also provides the resources necessary for our nation’s food and drug safety and security. The FY 2018 funding bill is not as robust as I would prefer, but I am pleased that the subcommittee has largely rejected the disastrous cuts put forth by the administration.   “This bill provides sufficient funding for our nutrition programs, and adequately funds our Rural Development agencies, with important improvements to rural housing and rural water programs. It also supports our food safety and inspection capabilit
