Faced with a global pandemic and economic recession, conservatives have calculated that they can block critical financial aid, embrace conspiracy theories from the fringes of the internet, and even support a violent insurrection.
The Congressional Integrity Project is changing that dynamic. We’re going deep to expose their records of looking out for themselves — along with their friends and family — and using every tool at our disposal to stop them from misleading and manipulating Americans.
We can’t force public officials to act with integrity. But we can make sure the American people know the truth.
Kyle Herrig is the executive director of the Congressional Integrity Project.
Kyle is the Founder and President of Accountable.US, a nonpartisan government watchdog and serves as the board chair of American Oversight, an accountability organization that leverages the power of open records requests and the courts to hold the administration accountable. Herrig previously practiced law.
A Nebraska native, Kyle holds a bachelor’s degree from Washington University in St. Louis and a law degree from the George Washington University Law School.
