Congressman Calls For Investigation On Mo’ Money Taxes

Congressman Steve Cohen out of Memphis plans to join a Virginia Congressman in sending a letter to US Attorney General Eric Holder calling for an investigation into Mo' Money Taxes.

Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), the first Jewish congressman ever elected in Tennessee, will be running in a fundamentally new 9th Congressional District this year without a strong base of support from the Jewish community in Memphis.

Supporting President Obama and Attorney General Holder in Tennessee
Dear friend, This week, I joined President Obama at the White House and on Air Force One during his trip to Nashville, and each time I invited him to Memphis. In addition, Congress approved $5 million that I secured to help fight our backlog of untested rape kits, and I introduced legislation to close a loophole that prevents us from effectively identifying and addressing fatal police interactions.

Cohen’s Recommendation for TVA Board, Ron Walter, Confirmed by U.S. Senate
[WASHINGTON, DC] – The United States Senate today confirmed Congressman Steve Cohen’s (TN-09) recommendation for the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Board of Directors, Ronald Walter, by a vote of 86-12. Mr. Walter will now fill one of nine positions on the TVA Board. Video of Congressman Cohen introducing Ron Walter at his Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works confirmation hearing last month is available here. “I was pleased to recommend Ron Walter to President Obama, as I have known Ron for nearly 40 years and know of no finer citizen of our community. He is diligent in all things, active and well-loved in the community for his genuine, caring attitude. I am very pleased Ron was confirmed by the U.S. Senate today, and I know he will do an outstanding job and serve the TVA constituency with good judgment and rectitude.” Ronald Walter is currently the President and General Manager of WREG-TV, a position he has held since 2004.  Mr. Walter has served in a variety
Cohen Statement on Government Funding Deal
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today released the following statement regarding the 2015 government funding agreement: “While I am pleased that negotiators on both sides of the aisle agreed that funding for Tennessee’s hospitals and my $5 million provision to help fight our rape kit backlog should be included, I simply cannot support the many non-germane riders added. This agreement takes from the middle class and the poor and gives to the rich, overturns the D.C. vote on marijuana, and gives millionaires more influence in Washington while letting them take bigger risks on Wall Street. The American people do not want more money in our politics and a return to the Wall Street policies that almost brought the world economy crashing down in 2008.”
New Cohen Bill Would Close Loophole Allowing Police Abuses to be Swept Under the Rug
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, introduced the National Statistics on Deadly Force Transparency Act of 2014 to close a loophole in federal law that prevents adequate collection of comprehensive national data regarding justified and unjustified fatal interactions with police. Without accurate data, racial disparities, abuses, and instances of excessive use of force are difficult to identify and unlikely to be fixed. “Before we can truly address the problem of excessive force used by law enforcement we have to understand the nature of the problem and that begins with accurate data,” said Congressman Cohen. “I am introducing this bill so that our country can begin to honestly assess racial disparities and other problems in our justice system and begin to fix them. It is a step in the right direction and a critical component of the healing process.” The 1994 Crime Bill re
