Right on Crime has welcomed its latest signatory to the group, as long-time conservative commentator L. Brent Bozell, chairman of ForAmerica and founder of the Media Research Center, signed its Statement of Principles.

In a press release announcing the addition, Ken Cuccinelli, former Virginia Attorney General and fellow signatory, stated that criminal justice reform “is critically important to who we are as conservatives,” and that Bozell’s leadership would be a “tremendous help in taking it to the next level.” Richard Vigeurie, Right on Crime signatory and chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, also praised Bozell’s signature, saying that his involvement is further evidence that conservative leaders are taking notice of the fact that “America’s criminal justice system is seriously broken and in need of major reform.”

“I look forward to working with this esteemed group of friends and colleagues in advancing policies that rightly  belong to conservatives—public safety and fiscal responsibility,” said Bozell in the release.

 Mr. Bozell joins more than 60 prominent conservative leaders who have endorsed the principles of conservative criminal justice reform, including former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese, former New Mexico Attorney General Hal Stratton and former U.S. Congressman J.C. Watts, former Ohio Attorney General Jim Petro, former Florida Attorney General Richard Doran, and Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist.
