Congratulations are due to Jeff Smith, Susan Schmidt, and James Grimaldi of the Washington Post, Marcus Stern and colleagues at the San Diego Union-Tribune, and Jerry Kammer and colleagues at Copley News Service for winning Pulitzer Prizes today for their incredible reporting during 2005, the year of corruption. The Post trio won the Pulitzer for investigative journalism for their in depth muckraking of Jack Abramoff's web of corruption. Stern and Kammer won a national reporting Pulitzer for their coverage of the bribery scandal that brought down Representative Randy "Duke" Cunningham.
