Most Traveled Man
Lew links politics and travel by working for a month in the 2018 mid-term elections for Dr. Kim Schrier for Congress in Washington state (a win!), then working for five other political campaigns down the East Coast. He investigates the high school peccadillos of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and cracks a previously mysterious code in “Bart’s” (Brett’s) infamous high school year book. He recounts his run-ins with the firm Huawei around the world from Malawi to Samoa to Vanuatu – this firm is viewed by many US agencies as an arm of Chinese military intelligence. See the downloadable stories below for details.
