Bloomberg Washington Bureau Adds 2

A focus on money, and money in politics.

Bloomberg continues to make additions to its Washington bureau, this time bringing in Lynnley Browning as a tax reporter and Bill Allison as a campaign finance reporter, announced Washington bureau chief Megan Murphy in a note to staff.

Browning arrives from Newsweek, where she was a contributing writer working on stories that included coverage of corporate taxes and tax shelters. In her more than two decades covering business and finance, she has served on staff at Reuters and the Boston Globe and has written extensively for The New York Times.

Allison joins from Foreign Policy, where he was a senior staff writer. He is the brains behind the phrase “dark money,” which he came up with in 2010, a product of his investigative work at the Sunlight Foundation. He was also responsible for editing the 2000 and 2004 editions of the Center for Public Integrity’s Buying of the President series.
