Its unwillingness to toe the party line miffed some Democrats, including, sources say, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, whose members occasionally found themselves in CREW’s cross hairs.

On the other hand, Brock seems to have a golden touch with rich Democrats, including billionaire financier George Soros.
