Matthew Vadum, Senior Editor

Veteran journalist Matthew Vadum edits Organization Trends and Foundation Watch. While in the Washington bureau of The Bond Buyer, he covered Congress, the Supreme Court, housing, and state and local finance. While a reporter for the Central Penn Business Journal in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, he won an award for outstanding legal journalism from the Pennsylvania Bar Association for an article that focused on employment law. He holds an M.A. in American Studies from Georgetown University. An expert on the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), Vadum has written hundreds of articles and blog posts on the group. His groundbreaking research on ACORN was cited by Michelle Malkin in her New York Times bestseller, "Culture of Corruption." Malkin credits Vadum with being one of two people in the nation for "foresight and insight in reporting on the [ACORN] story when no one else would." Vadum's work is also cited in David Freddoso's New York Times bestseller, "The Case Against Barack Obama."
In Subversion, Inc., the leading investigator and intellectual unearths ACORN's gnarled roots of leftist radicalism and reveals why this thorn patch of a complex political creature produces the rotten fruits of suppression, oppression, intimidation, thuggery and outright terrorism. The author documents how ACORN's tentacles reach into the highest levels of the U.S. Subversion, Inc. also examines the organization's bipartisan beginnings and its intricate entanglements with President Obama. After Vadum ticks off its historical deceptions, urban terror tactics and unflinching commitment to looting and plundering the best of America's institutions and accomplishments, you'll never again look at a red-shirted "voter drive" with quite the same causal naivet?.
