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. This time of year is big business for tax preparers, but the response from Mo' Money Taxes customers is anything but positive. Customers all over the southeast have been complaining to the news media about the company. Just this week all six stores in the Norfolk, Virginia area were shut down and computers taking away by police. "The police took the computers out. They're not seized. They just took them out ...

Steve Cohen regrets losing Jewish voters in Tenn.’s 9th


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. On Friday, the Tennessee Senate approved a redistricting map that would effectively move most of Cohen’s Memphis-area Jewish constituency into the 8th Congressional District, represented by Rep.

The 150th Anniversary of the Memphis Massacre
Dear Friend, Yesterday I attended the “The Memphis Massacre: Precursor to the 14th Amendment” luncheon hosted by the Memphis Bar Foundation at the Peabody in honor of the 150th anniversary of the Memphis Massacre, which occurred May 1-3, 1866. During the Memphis Massacre, mobs of white civilians and policemen stormed through neighborhoods of freed slaves and African American Union soldiers killing 46 African American men, women, and children. The Memphis Massacre is one of the most significant historical events of the Reconstruction-era and led to the passage of the 14thAmendment, which expanded the protection of civil rights to all Americans regardless of race, and other key civil rights laws, yet it has too often been no more than a footnote in our nation's history. It is important we remember and learn from our past, not erase it from our memories. This is why in 2008, I authored the first ever federal apology for slavery and the Jim Crow era. The need remains for our nation
Cohen Receives Perfect Score on Defenders of Wildlife Conservation Report Card
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] - Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today received a perfect 100% score on the Defenders of Wildlife Conservation Report Card for the 1st Session of the 114th Congress.  Congressman Cohen was the only member of the Tennessee Congressional delegation to receive a perfect score. “It is an honor to be recognized by the Defenders of Wildlife for my work on conservation issues,” said Congressman Cohen, a longtime supporter of wildlife and conservation efforts on the state and national levels.  “It is important that we protect wildlife and wild habitats for future generations to enjoy.  As long as I am in Congress, I will continue to fight for these issues.” The Conservation Report Card measures the commitment of U.S. Senators and Representatives to wildlife and habitat conservation during each Congressional session. It reviews both House and Senate votes on key conservation issues, providing a clear assessment of how well members of Congress are doing to protec
Congressman Cohen Commends President Obama for Commuting Sentences of 58 Americans Serving Unjustly Long Sentences
[MEMPHIS, TN] - Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice and leading Congressional advocate for more justice through Presidential commutations, today commended President Obama’s decision to commute the sentences of 58 non-violent drug offenders incarcerated in federal prisons, including one Memphian. Under current federal law, many of these prisoners would have already completed their sentences and been released. Today’s commutations indicate the President is continuing to move towards a more just approach that makes broader use of his pardon and commutation powers to right the wrongs of outdated federal policies that have since been overturned by Congress. "These commutations for those serving time for non-violent drug convictions are an encouraging development and a significant step by President Obama toward a more rational and fair justice system for Americans who are incarcerated—something I hav
