In this new episode of The Scene my guest is Alex Mohajer. Alex is a political writer and commentator who is one of the most shared contributors at The Huffington Post. He is the Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Bros4America (formerly Bros4Hillary), a progressive advocacy organization that gained national recognition during the 2016 presidential election for its efforts to elect Hillary Clinton. Alex holds a Bachelor of Arts from U.C. Berkeley and is a Juris Doctor graduate from Chapman University School of Law. He has been interviewed for or featured on The Fox News Channel, PolitiFact, The Washington Post, The LA Times, The New York Times, Yahoo News, New York Public Radio and elsewhere. He was named by LGBTQ Nation to their Top 8 People Working to Elect Hillary Clinton, and he was also named one of OUT Magazine‘s 100 Most Eligible Bachelors of 2017. By night, he is an award-winning singer and actor who was nominated for a 2016 Broadway World Award for Best Male Cabaret Artist.
Alex first became a major voice in post-election dialogue following his debut Huffington Post article “Russian Interference Could Give Courts Legal Authority To Install Clinton.” It quickly became the top news story on Google, and he has since followed it with regular articles criticizing the new administration and questioning whether Trump is even a legitimate president. He has also written over 150 articles for Bros4America, including this recent profile of our Executive Editor Leonard Jacobs for their ongoing interview series Bros on the Ground. He is active on Twitter at @AlexMohajer.
