Breakin the Rules - More FEC Problems?

This may not have caught the FEC's eye, but it caught mine. It seems as though Nancy Boyda paid for an "education scholarship" to certain supporters back in 2004.

I'm no FEC law expert, but it smacks of "vote buying" to me. Maybe the FEC will read this little blog and agree, maybe they won't, but someone should look into it.

The Ultimate Guide to Tracking Your Congressperson (With Pics!)
Submitted by Nirmal on Tue, 2007-03-13 06:13.:: michroots
One of the most essential elements of online political activism is that anyone can do it. The more people who are watching their elected representatives and are invested in the political process, the better. Thankfully, with some new (and a few old) tools, citizen watchdogging has gotten easier than ever.

One such tool is Open Congress. As profiled by Download Squad, MyDD, and Ezra Klein, Open Congress is an intuitive system that makes Congressional information accessible to the average person. By providing information on votes, bills, and members of Congress, Open Congress aims to increase transparency in government.

(To track your Congressperson, I strongly recommend the use of feeds whenever possible. Feeds can be read by feed readers, such as Google Reader or Bloglines. A feed reader will help you receive instant updates from feeds and quickly skim through a vast array of information on your Congressional Representatives.)

For the purposes of this tutorial, we'll be tracking Congressman Joe Knollenberg.

Voting History

To follow your member of Congress' voting record in real time, pull up Open Congress and input their name in the search field. In our case, we will enter "Joe Knollenberg" in OpenCongress' search window. This brings us to Knollenberg's OpenCongress page.

drew, what in the world is that all about? And yes, it looks like the old democrat machines (well, it still happens in New Jersey and New Orleans) giving "poll workers" $10 each on election day.

yeah. I'm sure you're smarter and more diligent than the FEC.

Seriously, this blog is quickly becoming the gutter of KS politics.
