From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is a liberal watchdog group founded in 2003. Its stated mission is to "promote ethics and accountability in government and public life by targeting government officials - regardless of party affiliation - who sacrifice the common good to special interests."[1] CREW advances its mission by engaging in litigation, public advocacy, Freedom of Information Act requests, media outreach and official complaints to government agencies such as the Federal Election Commission and the Internal Revenue Service.[1] "We are progressive," said Naomi Seligman, the group's deputy director and communications director. "We do work within a larger progressive infrastructure." Seligman suggested her group is the progressive counterweight to Judicial Watch.[2] One of their most visible projects is an annual report of Washington's most corrupt politicians.[citation needed]


Melanie Sloan serves as CREW's Executive Director. Prior to starting CREW in 2003, she served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the District of Columbia. She currently serves on the legal team of Valerie Plame.[3]
