The Pulitzer Prize-winning Center for Public Integrity is sending reporters to the national political conventions in Cleveland and Philadelphia to exclusively focus on special-interest influence, lobbying, partying, big-money politicking and corporate schmoozing — our specialties.

The Center for Public Integrity’s money and politics reporting team is among the best in the business, this year producing a barrage of exclusive stories and investigations about the bankrollers and influence peddlers behind Election 2016.

And our team is already revealing what’s happening behind the curtains in Cleveland and Philadelphia — see our recent investigation: “Special interests look to influence political conventions — discreetly.”

Senior political reporter Dave Levinthal will be in Cleveland next week for the Republican National Convention, and political reporters Carrie Levine and Michael Beckel will be in Philadelphia the week after for the Democratic National Convention. Deputy Executive Editor John Dunbar will oversee the Center for Public Integrity’s convention coverage.
