Rep. Al Green Takes The Plunge

Let’s take a look at this congressman, shall we:

If he is so determined to impeach Trump for allegations that have been leveled but not investigated or proven then we ought to be able to look at the history of the one wanting to bring impeachment up. He did after all say that his call on the floor had nothing to do with him personally….

Al Green is an American lawyer, politician and the U.S. Representative from Texas’s 9th congressional district which includes Harris and Fort Bend counties, serving since 2005. The district includes most of southwestern Houston, including most of that city’s share of Fort Bend County. A former trial lawyer, Green co-founded the firm of Green, Wilson, Dewberry, and Fitch. He also served as president of the Houston NAACP and, during his term as the organization’s leader, membership increased sevenfold. While serving as NAACP leader, he focused on increasing minority hiring in Texas and forming alliances with Hispanic groups. He is a member of a Southern Baptist church.

His stance on issues:
–Strongly pro-choice.
–Supports gun control.
–Voted against every Bush budget to cut spending and voted 100% for every Obama submitted budget increasing government and spending.
–Member of thirteen caucuses in all including the Congressional India Caucus, Azerbaijani, STEM, After School, Veterans Jobs, Military Families and others.
–Member of the Congressional Pakistan Caucus
WASHINGTON April 21,2005 meeting: The Congressional Pakistan Caucus held a briefing with Ambassador of Pakistan Jehangir Karamat on Capitol Hill. The briefing was chaired by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, co-chair of the Caucus, and the closing remarks were made by Faiz Rehman, Executive Director of the Pakistani American Liaison Center (PALC). The meeting was held at — Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.  Officially recognized by congress.
–Serves on the Committee on Financial Services as:
—-United States House Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations (Ranking Member)
—-United States House Financial Services Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit
–Along with Congresswoman Lee he attended the first opening of a Pakistani Community Center in the US. The Pakistan Association of Greater Houston, the Islamic Society of Greater Houston (ISGH), and the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) work together on issues. The center is supposed to be a successful area which charges very little and includes clinics for low-income and prayer halls. The Pakistani community is described as fairly prosperous, with many doctors, engineers, gas station owners, and business people.

Controversies:
1) Houston Chronicle, September 26, 2008 – “Rep. Green wants decision in discrimination suit
Representative says he never sexually abused former employee”: Although Green and the former employee had a “romantic encounter” at her home in May 2007, Bill Miller, a spokesman for the congressman, said the claim of sexual assault, coming 18 months after the fact, is desperate and totally false.  Congressman Al Green and Lucinda Daniels, the former employee, resolved and settled their respective disputes without payment, promise or receipt of any money.

2) Democrat, Rep. Chris Bell (D., Tex.), filed accused his 2004 Democratic-primary opponent, former local-NAACP leader Al Green, of violating House rules by not disclosing the source of $300,000. Chris Bell leveled more than one accusation at opponents. Green explained the omission was an oversight by his campaign and that he had mortgaged his own home to run and would be filing the proper forms.

December 15, 2015 – Gave House Floor Speech – Topic  “Standing in Solidarity With the Muslim Community for Justice”

Net Worth according to 2014 figures and Inside.gov

Representative Green has an estimated net worth of $7.57M as of 2014, making him significantly wealthier than the average member of Congress and seventh among all members from Texas.

Green’s net worth was 7.2 times more than the average member of Congress and 9 times more than the average representative. When compared to the Texas Congressional Delegation, Green had a net worth that was 4.8 times more than the average.

 

According to Children At Risk, a local non-profit research organization, 20.8% of the Harris County children live in poverty, 6.5 per 1,000 die before age 1, and 38% drop out of high school. In 2011, according to the nonprofit Children at Risk, one-third of students at public high schools in Harris County do not graduate.  Harris County is generally Democrat. Fort Bend County is generally Republican except for 2016 when it voted more Democrat. Fort Bend County is the wealthiest county in Texas and is one of a growing number of U.S. counties with an ethnic plurality, with no single ethnic group forming a majority of the population.

Between 2000 and 2006, Texas ranked third in receiving federal funds raking in aid and contracts worth more than $1.2 trillion. The Lone Star State, however, spends less per student than most states—$8,299 (the national average is $10,700).

Two Houston communities are ranked among the nation’s 25 most dangerous neighborhoods, according a new study by NeighborhoodScout.com.– Houston’s historic Third Ward and Sunnyside, a historically black community located off Texas 288 south of downtown Houston.

The Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown has just been ranked sixth among the nation’s Top 12 Boomtowns.

Interesting information… when one considers that he has been in office since 2005 so for eleven years was drawing a House of Representative salary. Additionally, his strong support for CAIR and loyalty to Obama is immediately suspect as he challenges President Trump, just as his loyalties to the US as far as a constitutional rather than globalist agenda are possibly in question.

So should we look at HIS intent for bringing this impeachment to the congressional floor? Or do you think that Rep. Green deserves to be investigated first and found innocent or guilty before he is brought up for impeachment on suspicion? Should he be impeached for his possible ties to a “shadow government” that we know is in many ways assaulting our country?

    Another major “progressive” asshat deep in the heart of Texas. How does this happen? I thought Texas (except for Austin) was populated by civilized, intelligent people.

      When I lived in San Antonio between 1979-1985 there was a community of Arabs scooping up property. These people were Extremely wealthy. Security Guards with weapons all around the property and Lots of money spent renovating for prize Arabian stock. So entirely possible. Several enclaves exist in Texas now.

    Green has a face made for television … Al Jazeera, that is.
