Movin’ On Up to the Bigtime With Greg Meeks

Ackerman too? Because of retirements, elections and other issues, Rep. Greg Meeks of New York is set to move up several steps on House Foreign Affairs and House Financial Services next Congress.  Meeks will move up at least three slots in seniority on House Foreign Affairs and at least two to three slots on House Financial Services. Much will depend on who wins the race between Brad Sherman and Howard Berman. Yeah, there is an ethics case (of curse, he’s a CBC members) filed by the Republican run National Policy Law Center (same group that filed against Rangel…) but at some point House Ethics should be announcing the results of that investigation.  Regardless, Meeks will be moving up more slots in seniority on his committees than perhaps any other CBC member in 2013.
