Follow the Money State by State!
A few days back, I proposed a forum to monitor State House candidates. That's a daunting task. The sheer number of Reps alone is enough to send me, a very enthusiastic Dem, into a coma. What's more, as you dive deep into each state, the politics become more and more local which means less context and less actual local reporting.
BUT wouldn't it be nice, at the very least, to know where each State House candidate is getting his or her money?
Well, take a look at THIS!
“Corporate influence in politics has gone off the charts, and it’s more important than ever for voters to understand who is financing candidates,” said Evan Hansen, editor in chief of Wired.com. “Maplight has done the hard work of compiling the data. At Wired, we’re happy to help get that information out to the wider public, and share it as broadly as possible with this web-based embeddable widget.”
Get that? It's a widget that you can add to a blog. Your blog. So get to know each Republican. Find out where they're weakest and strongest and attack them for both. It's time to get these lunatics out of office so sane folks might take their places.
