Sunlight Foundation Results Are IN!!!

Late last year, the Sunlight Foundation enlisted it's member investigators to review the websites of our senators and congressmen for transparency in a selected number of categories. The results are now in, and nobody is doing an acceptable job.

Wow, it is alot worse that I would have guessed.

Go here for results for your elected officials. (thanks to fellow Bloosier John)

Just in digging around, it is very disapointing.
Here in Indiana, Bayh has a 24% transparency and Lugar 32%.
California looks good for these kind of numbers, with the only 48%'s I've seen so far. (Go figure- Daryl Issa & Henry Waxman)
Don Young of Alaska? 8%!!! Jane HARMAN 8%?!

This is some pretty eye opening stuff.

They got Harman's score wrong.

She still won't get a passing score, but she's not the worst offender either.
