Craigslist Founder Joins Board of Center for Public Integrity

Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist.org, has joined the board of directors of the Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit investigative news organization.

Newmark launched Craigslist in 1995. The site reaches far and wide — including the halls of Congress. Craigslist recently grabbed headlines in Washington when then-Rep. Chris Lee (R-N.Y.) flirted with Washington blogger Yesha Callahan, and sent her a shirtless photograph on Craigslist. She went off about it on FlyBlackChic.com, her personal blog.

In a release, CPI announced a “major” new initiative called “craigconnects.org,” a 20-year plan to connect and protect organizations (including the Center for Public Integrity) that are doing good worldwide via the Internet.
