Politico reported in October 2014 that Edwina Rogers, “who served in both Bush administrations and in several posts on the Hill, is heading a new lobbying group to rally congressional Republicans around criminal justice reform.”  Politico reported that Ms. Rogers helped launch the Center for Prison Reform and became “the group’s lobbyist and chief executive to persuade conservative lawmakers that they have a role to play in criminal justice reform.”  She told Politico that “There’s a general sense that we have an over-incarceration problem in this country…We’re focused on recruiting Republicans, conservatives, to this movement. It’s been long dominated by progressive groups.”
