Which corporations are you putting into office today?
by Larry Geller
Maplight.org and Wired have put together an interesting widget that illustrates campaign contributions made to Congressional representatives. They only have local data for California, at present, so it’s not very useful for us yet.
Here is the display for Rep. Charles Djou. You can see in a glance which corporations your vote will be putting into office should you vote for him.
Click on the blue arrow at the right to see some details.
You can select the other Hawaii Congresspeople by clicking on “Select a Legislator”. If it doesn’t work, please go to the Maplight.org website.
