The Progress & Freedom Foundation Is Newtless


Readers Report

THE PROGRESS & FREEDOM FOUNDATION IS NEWTLESS

Your article "The New Populism" (Cover Story, Mar. 13) twice referred to "Gingrich's Progress & Freedom Foundation." Because this implies that Newt Gingrich somehow dominates or controls the organization, it is misleading.

The Progress & Freedom Foundation, for which I am legal counsel, is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank established in 1993. As a tax-exempt charitable and educational organization, the foundation cannot and does not help, endorse, or otherwise advance the interests of any political candidate or party.

Although the foundation is very proud of its association with Gingrich, he is not and never has been a board member, officer, or employee of the foundation.
