This organization is committed to transparency in government, and the rooting out of lies, corruption, and government waste. I applaud their efforts. We need more organizations like this to make Americans more aware and responsible for the government they have.

Judicial Watch is a world class award winning organization which has been highly successful in revealing massive corruption within US federal, state and local governments. Over 93 percent of their contributions are from individuals, meaning big government and big business are not paying Judicial Watch to protect them. Judicial Watch is protecting each and every American citizen against corrupt tyranny. As a conservative organization demanding our Constitution and laws be followed they have become a victim of viscous false reviews on this website.

No one is forced to donate any money to this organization because highly educated informed people are contributing to Judicial Watch so the uninformed don't have to donate. Regardless of who contributes Judicial Watch is protecting each individuals personal rights and doing an incredible job. Google them in the current news.

Looking at the reviews, JW is obviously a target of the extreme left. The JW literature is not full of lies as one reviewer claims. They seem currently to be focused on the president's over reach through executive actions to circumvent the congress' responsibility for enacting laws and his administrations refusal to enforce some laws that he doesn't agree with even though it is explicitly stated in the constitution (Article II, Section 3) that the president "shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed". In the past, JW has held major Democrat and Republican leaders accountable for their misuse of power.

Well, if exposing Hillary Clinton as the radical leftist that she is is a "far right agenda"...I'll take it. Remember Clinton, she as Scty of State, ignored the pleas for help at the Consulate in Benghazi where 4 Americans, including the ambassador, were killed. Then, along with Obama, shamelessly tried to blame it on a video rather than the terrorist attack that it was. Of course, Hillary's ultimate insult to the families of those killed and indeed all Americans, was the "what difference does it make" statement. I'd also like an expose of Eric Holder and the DOJ for the "Fast and Furious" fiasco where a US agent was killed. Oh, and a little more on the IRS targeting conservatives. The media assisted cover ups is persistent and pervasive. What I'd like to know is if JW is actually effective in exposing these travesties against the American people. If so, I'm on board.

This is a scam. They do in fact, prey on the elderly. Do not send money, nor let your loved ones be taken in, and taken advantage of, by this horrific "organization". WHY these thieves are not shut down is simply amazing. The elderly, on fixed incomes and vulnerable, are their targets. Have they no shame or conscience?

This group has been hounding my mother with unsolicited letters asking for money. She is 80 years old and has the beginnings of dementia and we just realized she has been sending them checks. I agree with the other reviewers that say they prey on the elderly after seeing their onslaught of mail to my mom. I have written to them and demanded that they remove her name from their contact list immediately. Sadly this is just one of many "organizations" that take advantage of those who are easily influenced.

I am writing on behalf of my father who has been completely scared senseless by Judicial Watch. He has donated perhaps over a thousand dollars of money he cannot afford to spend because he believes JW is exposing corruption. Now that my dad is in assisted living, I see almost daily requests for MORE $ in the mail. These mailings are egregious and inflammatory. Their TOP 20 Worst Criminals list has one token Republican on it - come on!!! I completely agree they are preying on the fears of the elderly. I have repeatedly requested they remove us from their mailing list, and have just discovered they talked my dad into an Automatic Withdrawal from his checking account. I read their own founder sued them for misappropriation of funds - I hope the truth about JW comes out and they are shut down.

Have followed this organization for four years and believe that it is trying to be very fair about getting the elections to be fair and honest. If one doesn't believe that there was some illegal voting performed in the last National general election, then that one hasnot read the newspapers with an unbiased eye. I believe that Mr. Thomas Fitton and the Judicial Watch Organization is trying to do a great service for the United States of America.

Tom Fitton is a public offense. This is a thinly veiled hate group that preys upon the elderly, low information people, and extreme right wing madness. They are aggressively fighting for voter suppression. This is not a charity, it is a sham. It brings down charity navigator that they are here. I answered that they have a little impact, but not in a positive way.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hold them accountable for their lies

This organization is a SHAM! They prey on senile, elderly people and appeal to their fear. My mother was suffering from demential and received appeals from this organization about twice per month. We tried repeatedly to get them to take her off a list, but they did not respond. My brother, who lives in the DC area even checked out the address on record, and no such office existed. If this is a real organization, I would love to hear their explanation!
