About Darrell: Living the American Dream
Congressman Darrell Issa currently serves on the House Judiciary Committee, where he is Chairman of the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet. In addition to Judiciary, Issa also serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Previously, Issa served as Chairman of the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee, and as a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the Foreign Affairs Committee, the Energy & Commerce Committee, and the Small Business Committee. As the holder of 37 patents himself, Issa has been vigilant about protecting the intellectual property rights of artists and other entrepreneurs to help protect America’s position at the forefront of innovation and creativity in the entertainment and technology industries. His successful efforts to fight human trafficking along the United States border has resulted in tougher laws, stiffer penalties, and more consistent enforcement. His watchful concern to guarantee that U.S. taxpayers receive the royalties they are owed from mineral interests on federal lands exposed fraud and mismanagement at the Mineral Management Service (MMS) in 2006.
Recognizing his success as a Congressional watchdog of taxpayer dollars, House Republicans tapped Issa to serve as the Ranking Member and then Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee from 2008 through 2014. The Oversight Committee is the main investigative committee of the United States House of Representatives charged with the protecting the interests of U.S. taxpayers and eliminating waste, fraud and abuse in the federal bureaucracy. Issa served as the Ranking Republican Member of the Committee during the previous Congress. Under his leadership, the committee undertook numerous detailed investigations of the Countrywide Financial VIP Program that benefitted government officials with special reduced-rate mortgage loans, the illegal use of taxpayer dollars by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), the decades-old misplaced government agenda to manipulate the U.S. housing market through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that created the housing crisis, the politicization of science at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and a broad investigation into the financial crisis of 2008-2009....read more...
