David Cay Johnston
David Cay Johnston, a Brighton resident, is The New York Times tax reporter. He won a Pulitzer prize in 2001 and has been a Pulitzer finalist three other times in the past three years. The tax dodges his stories have shut down were valued by a Congressional committee at $260 and that was just for a few of them.
Over his 37 years in journalism Johnston hunted down a murderer whom the police failed to catch and won freedom for an innocent man, stopped one of the richest men in America from taking $333 million from a charity for poor children, was the first reporter to expose the brutality, political spying and ineffectiveness of the Los Angeles Police Department and caused two television stations to lose their licenses for news manipulations.
