Congressional Black Caucus abuse by Democrats

U.S. Representative Sanford Bishop (D-GA) awarded three scholarships from the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation to his stepdaughter and wife’s niece between 2003 and 2005, according to records from the non-profit group.

In 2003, Emmaundia Whitaker, the niece of Vivian Creighton Bishop, who is Bishop’s wife, was awarded an education scholarship. She was also given a similar award in 2005.

And in 2003, Aayesha Owens Reese, the congressman’s stepdaughter, was granted an education scholarship as well.

Of course, this wasn’t done by a white, conservative Republican, so you probably didn’t read about in the papers or hear about it on the news on radio or TV.

And, of course, there were no laws broken. It is just another typical day of politicians using their power and influence for things other than “the national interest.”

But, frankly, it makes me a little angry.

Let me know if you hear of a black Republican Congressman doing the same thing and I’ll report it the same way.
