MapLight Revealing Money's Influence on Politics

Maplight WisconsinSeeing the relationship between campaign donations and votes on key bills by Wisconsin lawmakers got easier with the April 26, 2011 launching of an online site enabling citizens to connect the dots between money and public policy decisions. The site is the product of a partnership between the Democracy Campaign and the California-based group MapLight. This collaboration makes the information in WDC's searchable database of campaign contributors even more useful and valuable by allowing citizens to more easily connect the dots between donations to Wisconsin lawmakers and public policy decisions made by those officials. And it creates new opportunities for investigative journalism and citizen exploration of the impact of special interest money in Wisconsin politics.
