Political journalist and investigator Carrie Levine today joins the Center for Public Integrity as federal politics reporter exploring the influence of money in politics.
Levine will primarily write for the Center for Public Integrity’s “Consider the Source” project, which investigates campaign finance and political influence issues in the post-Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission era of politics. She will also contribute to “Primary Source,” a 2014 Webby Award finalist for top political blog.
For four years before joining the Center for Public Integrity, Levine worked as research director at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, where she managed a five-person staff that exposed the activities of politically active “dark money” nonprofits and uncovered instances of congressional self-dealing.
Carrie previously worked as a reporter and associate editor for The National Law Journal, where she covered the inner workings of lobbying firms and lobbyists’ strategies.
She also previously reported for The Charlotte Observer, The Patriot Ledger of Quincy, Massachusetts, and The Sun of Lowell, Massachusetts. She is a graduate of Boston University and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
The Washington, D.C.-based Center for Public Integrity is a nonprofit, nonpartisan and independent news organization specializing in investigative journalism on significant public policy issues. Among its many honors, the Center for Public Integrity won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for investigative journalism.
