Donor Lookup: Find Individual and Soft Money Contributors
Search to determine whether a person has donated to any federal election campaign. You may search by name of contributor, by ZIP Code of donor, by occupation/employer of donor, or by name of candidate.
Personal Financial Disclosure Reports
By May 15 of each year, Congress members and top officials in the executive branch must file forms covering the preceding calendar year that list their assets and liabilities, their income (excluding their government salaries, oddly), asset transactions, gifts they received, and more. They need not list property unless it produces income (so their primary residence is generally not listed), but they must include the source of their spouse’s income.
Search for information about money donated to federal candidate campaigns.
Congressional Travel: Search Privately Financed Trips
Although House and Senate ethics rules limit the number of congressional trip days a single private source can pay for, there is no limit to the number of privately-sponsored trips Congress members can take during their term. This Legistorm
database provides details on trips taken by Congress members and their staffs funded by private sponsors. Includes records of who paid for the trip, everyone who went on the trip, a map detailing where they stayed, a breakdown of how much they spent on transportation versus meals and lodging, and more.
This database tracks anyone whose résumé includes positions of influence in both the private and public sectors. Former federal employees often are put into jobs as lobbyists, consultants and strategists, while many friends and business partners of politicians end up in influential government careers. Use this site to discover which public relations firms have signed up former White House employees, which lobbyists have brought their interests with them to the powerful appropriations committees, which interests are employing former members of Congress to lobby on their behalf, and much more.
