“the Triumvirate.”

will his flock get the tar and feathers or just forgive him and wash away his sins with more cash for the trials?

Did he fleece his flock? In the 1990’s, as the head of the Christian Coalition, Ralph Reed became the face of Christian conservativism. And what a face: Scrubbed and clean - innocent-looking as a choirboy.

Over past five years or so, he has made a small fortune as a lobbyist and fundraiser working with Christian organizations.
