Investigate your congressman

...well, at least her Website. The Sunlight Foundation has a new initiative, The Congressional Website Investigation Project. They're looking for citizens to go over the Websites of the 127 Congresspersons they haven't covered yet, to study them for usefulness, accessibility, and disclosure.
Want to be a 'citizen journalist'? They say it will take only 10 minutes of your time.

(Added later:) Oh, and there's more, via Boing Boing: Sunlight Foundation's OpenCongress site, where there's news about Congressional bills, gathered from government and Congressional sites, blogs

On another note, the Washington Post used Senate disclosure documents from Hillary Clinton to create a database of her husband's speeches and his fees. The places where Bill Clinton spoke are linked on a map: Clinton's Golden Voice. Golden, all right, to the tune of $31 million over five years.
