ETHICS QUESTIONED: Andie Wolfe (a.k.a Andie Dominick), a 2014 Pulitzer Prize nominated Journalist with the Des Moines Register, is being scrutinized for journalistic ethics with respect to several editorial pieces.
The twisted facts were corrected shortly after by Ryan Foley, an Associated Press journalist.
Furthermore, another Iowa journalist alleged that Andie Wolfe “displayed willful indifference…” with respect to the twisted facts as presented in her sympathetic story for convicted murderer Tracey Richter.
The full Exposé is published here:
Andie Wolfe’s story is tantamount to Criminal interference when taken in light of the criminal warrant issued shortly after she published the story. This warrant explains exactly why the telephone funds were taken from the prisoner.
Not the first time: In 2012 Journalist Andie Wolfe’s journalistic integrity was questioned by an independent Iowa publication.

On the date the article was published, I sent an email to three editors for the Des Moines register asking who was responsible for the article. I received the following response:
I penned this editorial. You can contact me at this email or my cell is 515-745-3381.
I then responded:
“Thanks for the prompt response Andie. No need for a call, I was just curious.”
To which she replied:
Editorials are the consensus opinion of a newspaper and revised/edited by others, including two editors. Yet one of us generally does most of the research and writing of an editorial.
I see some of the comments left on the editorial today. Our only interest in this is the procedures for confiscating all money of an inmate in an Iowa prison. State corrections officials have the authority to confiscate money, including telephone money. They have crafted a policy that they do not do that, but nothing in law appears to prohibit them from doing this. A county attorney pursuing an inmate struck us as odd, and that it was rare was confirmed by both corrections and a law professor.
Let me know if you need anything else.
