DEVORAH ADLER has more than 20 years of experience in investigations, political campaigns, issue advocacy, and policy development. Prior to founding Beehive Research, Devorah served as the Research Director for President Obama’s historic 2008 campaign. Her team researched the personal histories, business records, non-profit affiliations, and campaign finance filings of political opponents and other individuals of interest. Because of their work, President Obama’s opponents were forced to return $1.3 million in campaign contributions and repeatedly faced high-profile media scrutiny of their unethical transgressions, business entanglements, and pay-to-play politics.

Devorah served as the Research Director at the DNC during the 2006 cycle, when Democrats won back both the House and Senate after 10 years of Republican control. She also worked on the leadership staff for Democratic Leaders Daschle and Pelosi, providing research materials to support caucus wide communications efforts. Prior to her time in the Senate, Devorah served as an Associate Director in the Domestic Policy Council during the Clinton Administration. She began her career as a health policy analyst for the Health Resources and Services Administration, where she worked on issues related to access to care for underserved populations.

Case Study

Investigations

Beehive Research ran a year-long investigation into a sitting Cabinet official. Our research was used as the source for multiple print and television stories into the official’s personal residence, his non-official business dealings, and his relationships with the industries he was responsible for regulating. We worked with Congressional investigators in both the House and Senate to drive ongoing inquiries, and supported a broad spectrum of advocacy groups as they worked to highlight the official’s flaws both inside and outside of the Beltway. The investigation ended in the official’s resignation.

Case Study

Issue Advocacy

Beehive Research worked with a gun safety group to identify ties between banks with a consumer facing product line, and gun manufacturers and / or the National Rifle Association. We reviewed media archives, SEC records, campaign finance reports, and internet sources and quantified the value of the financial support provided through direct loans or arranging financing. The research received national media coverage and was cited in a Congressional hearing shortly after its release.

Case Study

Crisis Support

Beehive researched an individual who was actively undermining a company’s relationships with potential business partners. We found that the individual was linked to a right-wing hate group and that his claims of a dedicated grassroots following were overblown. The company used this information to address concerns raised by potential clients.

Case Study

Investigations

Beehive Research was asked to determine whether a public official was unfairly prejudicing an agency decision making process against a company in favor of a competitor. Our two year investigation used public records requests to provide the client and outside stakeholders with evidence that the agency was acting inappropriately and was unfairly prejudiced against our client. The results of the investigation led to a Congressional request for information, and effectively ended the inappropriate behavior that was harming our client.

Case Study

Investigations

Beehive Research teamed with a conservation organization to research key anti-government groups conducting the illegal occupation of a Federal wildlife refuge. Our research examined publicly available information related to the structure and financing of these groups and identified potential financial irregularities worthy of investigation by the Internal Revenue Service. The research was cited in a Congressional forum held by Democrats on the House Natural Resources and Homeland Security Committees that focused on the armed occupation at Malheur and threats of violence on public lands.

Case Study

Issue Advocacy

Beehive Research served as the lead research firm for an organization working to identify specific and recent civil rights violations related to debtors’ prisons. Using publicly available court records, Beehive was able to build a database that was used to identify courts with unusually high numbers of fine or jail time cases, allowing investigators on the ground to prioritize their fieldwork. The research informed an advocacy effort that reformed debtors prison practices in South Carolina.
