C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy
The secretive Christian fundamentalist group known as “The Family” is leading a new crusade for a “God-led government.” Jeff Sharlet is the only journalist to have reported from within the organization, garnering intense media coverage when it was revealed that their townhouse on Washington DC’s C Street was central to three Republican politicians’ sex scandals in the summer of 2009. In C Street, Sharlet shows how The Family, steeped in the influence and corruption one usually associates with the notorious lobbying industry, fuels and funds political fundamentalism from within our government. His exclusive access to sources and explosive documents show the true implications of fundamentalism in American politics—now, leading up to the next election, and beyond.
