Item Details

In politics, finding the dirt is a multimillion-dollar business. It's called opposition research--"oppo" to insiders. Few Americans are aware of its existence, yet oppo has become an integral part of the campaign process, hastening the implosion of countless office-seekers around the country. For nearly two decades, former journalists Alan Huffman and Michael Rejebian have been uncovering the buried truths about political candidates, from presidential appointees all the way down to local school-board hopefuls. We're with Nobody is the eye-opening account of their life as opposition researchers--a remarkable adventure across the American political landscape and through the often seamy underbelly of U.S. politics. From doing battle with reluctant, sometimes purposefully misleading bureaucrats to arriving in an unmarked police car for a clandestine meeting on the New Jersey waterfront, We're with Nobody offers readers a revealing slice of national and political life: a close-up look at today's political process, the fallible men and women we often choose to represent us and the little-understood industry of trying to bring candidates' weaknesses to light.
