Life and career 
Fund was born in Tucson, Arizona. According to his bio at the Leadership Institute Fund attended California State University where he studied journalism and economics. However, like most state universities California State Universities are associated with specific campuses (CSU at Sacramento, CSU Northridge, etc) There is no reference to Fund having earned a degree. He joined The Wall Street Journal as a deputy editorial features editor in 1984 and was a member of the editorial board from 1995 through 2001. The articles he has written have appeared in Esquire, Reader's Digest, Reason, The New Republic, and National Review.
Fund cowrote a 1992 book, Cleaning House: America's Campaign for Term Limits (ISBN 0-89526-516-8) with James Coyne. He also collaborated with Rush Limbaugh on another 1992 book, The Way Things Ought to Be (ISBN 067175145X), transcribing it from tape and editing it.
In 2004, Fund wrote Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy (ISBN 1-59403-061-8), in which he strongly criticizes the American election system, describing it as "befitting an emerging Third World country rather than the world's leading democracy". He has since updated the book. His latest book Who's Counting?: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk also addresses the issue of voter fraud in U.S. elections.
