I love data.  When I find great sources of data I have to record it.

Here is RAW and API data from the Federal Government.

OpenSecrets Open Data

It has:

  • Campaign Finance – PAC and individual contributions to, and expenditures by, Candidates, PACs and Party Committees
  • Lobbying – Clients, registrants (generally lobbying firms), lobbyists and bills lobbied
  • 527s Data – Committees, Receipts and Expenditures
  • Personal Finances – Agreements, Assets and Liabilities, Outside Compensation and Income, Honoraria and Gifts, Positions, Transactions, Travel
  • Resource tables such as Category Codes, Expense Codes, Members of Congress, etc

Good stuff.   I will start working through this data.
