Meet the Reporters

The staffs of The San Diego Union-Tribune and Copley News Service won the 2006 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting for their series of articles on the bribes-for-government contracts scheme that landed Rep. Randall "Duke" Cunningham in jail. Jerry Kammer and Marcus Stern, Washington correspondents for Copley News Service, were singled out by the Pulitzer committee for their notable contributions, but stories for the award-winning series also came from Bruce V. Bigelow, Dean Calbreath and Onell R. Soto of The San Diego Union-Tribune. Karin Winner, the editor of The Union-Tribune and George E. Condon, Jr., Washington bureau chief for Copley News Service, played significant roles in shepherding the coverage of the Duke Cunningham scandal.

In this interview, reporter Jerry Kammer talks with EXPOSÉ's Elizabeth Dwyer about his work with the team on the series, his passion for investigative reporting, and Congress's "incumbency protection plan." (13 minutes)
