Washington Times Senior Editor for Opinion Emily Miller was awarded the Clark Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Reporting from the Institute on Political Journalism.
The Mollenhoff award was given to Ms. Miller for her Emily Gets Her Gun series, which ultimately resulted in review of onerous gun regulations by Washington, D.C., officials.
Ms. Millers work beat out competition from The Wall Street Journal and the Seattle Times, both previous winners of the award. This is the first time The Washington Times has won this award.
Emily Millers work exemplifies the guiding principle of our editorial pages, which is that good opinion writing is based on solid reporting said Editorial Page Editor Brett M. Decker. Her Emily Gets Her Gun series shows what individuals can do to fight back against bad government regulations. Its investigative journalism up front and personal because the writer is involved in the drama as it unfolds.
Each year the Mollenhoff award is given to a story that contains all the elements of investigative reporting, as well as the initiative shown by Clark Mollenhoff himself. Mollenhoff, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, was a pioneer in investigative journalism. His work led to the successful intervention of authorities in a case of corruption and fraud in the Teamsters Union.

Kudos to Emily Miller, a well deserved award.
This was a great series by Emily. If anyone has not read it, I would encourage you to check the archives and read it now.
I love conservative women. Gorgeous, tough fiber, yet always feminine.
I remember when that series just got started. That was great work.
Smart and attractive- a nice combination.
