In an article titled “Conservative Watchdog Group Targeted Rangel,” NLPC’s investigation of Congressman Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) is detailed in today’s edition of The Hill. The newspaper, which is widely read by members of Congress and their staffs, reports:
When the news broke that Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) may have been abusing New York City rent-control laws, Peter Flaherty and Ken Boehm smelled blood.
The two investigators are principals and founders of the National Legal and Policy Center, a conservative watchdog group whose research has spurred news stories taking Rangel to task for alleged ethical violations.
The center has time, money and seasoned Washington hands, who research publicly available information.
But it is not just Democrats who are the center’s targets. Some big-spending Republicans, such as former Sen. Ted Stevens (Alaska) and Rep. Don Young (Alaska), also have found themselves in the center’s crosshairs.
