One of the most important things we hope to accomplish on January 8th, is to help conservative activists be energized and to get involved in the electoral process—perhaps even run for political office! Who better to encourage us than this brave lady who stood up to the Left and is now teaching us how to organize. If you haven’t met Anita you are in for a treat.

She has worked with the American Bar Association’s Central European and Eurasian Law Initiative; (ABA CEELI), the International Crisis Group, the Grameen Foundation and American Rights at Work. She also partnered with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe on their mission to Macedonia as an election observer.
In 2005, MonCrief joined the Strategic Writing and Research Department of ACORN Political Operations and its affiliate Project Vote.
In 2008, MonCrief came forward, first as a confidential source of The New York Times and, after The New York Times backed away, publicly, to expose the damage that ACORN has done to the impoverished and marginalized communities, as well as its rampant voter fraud. She also began to blog and write about corruption within the ACORN/Project Vote network of corporations.
In June 2009, Project Vote/ACORN filed a lawsuit against MonCrief in an attempt to silence her. MonCrief has appeared on numerous radio and television programs including, The Laura Ingraham Show, The O’Reilly Factor, The Sean Hannity Radio show and Fox News programs.
In March 2010, the ACORN/Project Vote lawsuit was dismissed.
MonCrief is a regular contributor to Big Government, Hot Air, NetRight Daily, RedState, NewsReal Blog and other Conservative news websites. MonCrief and her family live in the Washington, DC metro area.
