Video: Bill Moyers on How Evangelical Christian Activist Ralph Reed is Resurrecting His Political Career

Ralph Reed is resurrecting his political life. The evangelical Christian activist was once tainted by his involvement in the Jack Abramoff political corruption scandal.

But at the Republican National Convention, Reed was back, rallying his evangelical foot soldiers to go to the polls and defeat Barack Obama.

Bill Moyers’ television show recently took a close look at Reed’s political resurrection. The show includes a nod to this July 2012 AlterNet article by our own Adele Stan, specifically for the revelation that that Reed's non-profit Faith and Freedom Coalition hired a subsidiary of his for-profit consulting firm, Century Strategies, to perform get-out-the-vote operations during the Wisconsin recall.
