Creator Jonathan Vanasco sez, "I tossed together a mashup over a few hours while
sick on the couch. It uses the data from Propublica and SunlightLabs to create
very-shareable profile pages for every Senator and Representative
that were geared for 'viral': - language is designed to motivate

lobbyist money may be influencing things - automatic twitter
suggestions for tweets with likely-to-share language ie: -
challenge a senator to give back $x in media contributions - notes
if a senator has received more media contributions than 50% of
other senators - asks a senator how much money is needed for them
to represent people, not lobbyists."
