Kevin Mooney is an investigative journalist and reporter in Washington D.C. He has written for the the Washington Times, the American Spectator, Washington Examiner, CNSNews.com, the Capital Research Center and blogs for NetRightDaily.com and NewsBusters. He has also made several appearances on Fox News to discuss pending legislation and public policy disputes.
Kevin broke several news stories concerning border security policies, drug cartel activity and potential acts of terrorism. After obtaining documents from an internal audit of Department of Homeland Security (DHS), he found that almost half of the illegal aliens that had found their way into the U.S. in recent years were from terrorist-sponsoring or “special interest” nations.
In his subsequent reporting, Kevin also revealed evidence that suggests well-funded individuals from the Middle-East had entered into the U.S. from Mexico, after blending into the culture and becoming proficient in Spanish. Texas sheriffs and public officials came forward with documents that showed a growing nexus between illegal immigration, human trafficking, drug trafficking and potential terror networks.
Kevin also has written extensively on the environmental movement, its impact on economic activity and new scientific data that questions the premise of man-made global warming. In his reporting Kevin has also called attention to a new legal standard known as the “pre-cautionary principle” green activists are now using in an effort to impose European-style regulations on the U.S.
Most recently, Kevin has been involved in covering domestic policy initiatives on Capitol Hill favored by organized labor and other special interest reports. He also appeared on the “Glenn Beck Program” several times to discuss the connection between The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN). Kevin was also the first to report on the $53 million in federal funding ACORN has received since 1994, and the $8 billion that has remained on the table, despite on-going investigations.
Prior to arriving in Washington D.C., Kevin worked as a reporter for the Trenton Times and Forbes Newspapers in New Jersey. He also held editorial positions with Dow Jones and Company and Bloomberg News in Princeton, N.J.
Kevin is a graduate of Rider University in Lawrenceville, N.J. and holds degrees in communications and political science. He also took part in a study abroad program at Hertford College in Oxford University as part of his graduate work for Regent University in Va., where he earned a degree in public policy.
