CREW Launches CorporateCrackdown.org – Outside Oversight Where Business and Government Intersect

WASHINGTON - Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) launched a new website today that will provide much-needed oversight on the intersection between business and government.

Federal contractors, corporations, and trade groups all conduct
business with the government with relatively little non-governmental
oversight. CorporateCrackdown.org's
mission is to change that. The new CREW website will hold accountable
those who unduly influence government officials, overcharge taxpayers,
or sacrifice the public good for private benefit by exposing their
activities and taking action where appropriate.

The latest news, reports, and blogs on corporate malfeasance will be posted on CorporateCrackdown.org
to educate the public on those companies that use their power and
influence to prioritize profit at the expense of Americans' interests.

Melanie Sloan, executive director of CREW, said today, "CorporateCrackdown.org
will give the American public a place to go to learn about credit card
company rip offs, payday lenders' unprincipled activities, and defense
contractors' crooked dealings. We have targeted unethical elected
officials since our inception, and now CREW has corporate America in
its sights. This is just the warning shot."
