Kimberley A. Strassel (born July 24, 1972) is an author and member of the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board. She writes a weekly Conservative column, "Potomac Watch", which appears on Fridays.

Biography[edit]

Strassel grew up in Buxton, Oregon, where she graduated in 1990 from Banks High School in nearby Banks.[1] She graduated from Princeton University in 1994 with a B.A. in Public Policy and International Affairs. Before joining the Editorial Board she was a news assistant for the European edition of the WSJ in Brussels (1994–1996) and a staff writer covering technology for the WSJ Europe in London (1996–1999). She moved to New York in 1999 to cover real estate before quickly joining the editorial page as an assistant features editor. She became a senior editorial writer and member of the editorial board in 2005.

In 2001, Strassel was the first mainstream journalist to cover problems with Michael Bellesiles's Arming America. While Strassel won an award for her work on the issue, when the concerns that Strassel raised turned out to be correct, Bellesiles lost his professorship at Emory University and had his Bancroft Prize revoked.

In 2006, Strassel co-wrote Leaving Women Behind: Modern Families, Outdated Laws (ISBN 0-7425-4545-8), which argues that government regulation interferes with marketplace initiatives to provide women with economic opportunity.

Strassel profiled Sarah Palin in a 2008 article entitled I Haven't Always Just Toed the Line.[2] The article originally appeared in the Weekend Interview section of The Wall Street Journal on November 1, 2008.

In 2012, Strassel wrote an editorial in the WSJ that alleged the Obama campaign was targeting Frank L. VanderSloot, a national finance co-chair for Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign and a top campaign donor.[3] Strassel's editorial was disputed by left-wingers Rachel Maddow,[4] Lewiston Morning Tribune editor Marty Trillhaase,[5] and David Shere of Media Matters for America.[6] In May 2013, Strassel reported that the IRS (not the Obama campaign) targeted conservatives, including Frank L. VanderSloot.[7]

Personal life[edit]

Strassel married journalist Matthew Rose at her parents' home in Buxton, Oregon on July 15, 2000.[8]
