Greenhouse - Showing Where Politicians Get Their Money

David Cubine

Ever wondered where members of congress obtain their campaign funding? Now you can install a basic browser plugin that will tell you immediately.

High school student Nick Rubin recently finished development on a tool that allows users to simply hover their mouse over a member of congress’s name and see what industries their money comes from, along with how many small-dollar contributions they receive and their stance on campaign finance reform. This can make browsing the web an eye-opening experience on a daily basis.

You can download the plugin for free over at

Thanks to Lawrence Lessig’s Mayday SuperPAC newsletter for showing us the plugin.
