Gadfly media passes on the Washington Press Corps-and the most pointed and clever questions to arise from this august assembly of journalists. Over the decades, Les' convictions and ideals have both embodied and bucked the zeitgeist, as he's veered from left-leaning political views to his current individualized brand of renegade conservativism. An Anglican minister, former Episcopalian priest and perpetual agitator for truth and accountability from the power structure, Les has broken a litany of leading national stories. He exposed the odd and criminal behavior among devotees of Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple long before the cult's macabre implosion of mind control, mass suicide and violence achieved the legendary status it enjoys today. He's also distinguished as among the earliest and most influential journalists to directly raise the specter of AIDS to the presidency.
