Charles Lewis, founder and executive director of the Center for Public Integrity, talked about the relationship between investigative journalism and a democratic government during his visit to the College as the 2003 Park distinguished speaker. The award-winning journalist spoke at IC shortly before the release of the Center for Public Integrity's report on the 2000 presidential election, part of its Buying of the President series, which profiles major presidential candidates and political parties in the United States and their possible connections to special interests. The CPI is a nonprofit research organization in Washington, D.C., that conducts investigative research to uncover corruption and abuse of power by governments, corporations, and individuals involved in the political process.
