Congressman Gregory Meeks (D-NY) was confronted by national bestselling author and journalist Jason Mattera over several unethical practices that he has refused to either explain or apologize for. Mattera, author of the blockbuster new book CRAPITALISM: Liberals Who Make Millions Swiping Your Tax Dollars, caught up with Rep. Meeks and asked him, “How many more scandals do you think you’ll be involved in before your career is up?” “I’m not in any scandals,” insisted Meeks. “Oh, you’ve been in plenty, though,” responded the author. As Mattera details in CRAPITALISM, Meeks managed to purchase a home $400,000 below the market rate, thanks to the help of a contributor to his campaign. In another questionable move, he found himself under investigation after accepting $40,000 from a donor but failing to report the money as a loan until years later. Meeks also co-founded a charity that has been accused of embezzling $30,000 for Hurricane Katrina victims. And he has raised the eyebrow of other critics with a taxpayer-funded Lexus that has been leased by the federal government at an estimated cost of $1,000 per month. “There’s the personal loan that you forgot to declare as a personal loan,” pointed out Mattera. “That’s not a scandal,” answered the congressman.
