Control of the election is important, it is equally important to guard politicians, when he will sit in their offices. In the United States deals with including Sunlight Foundation Reporting Group. This bipartisan organization uses the information available for the analysis of public policy decisions. Its service makes it easy to study the correlation between the activity of lobbyists or the size of contributions during election campaigns and content of legislation and structure of public expenditure.

Washington Times: Will Democrats find their technology mojo in time?
The Washington Times has an article about technology and partisan politics that mentions the work of the Sunlight Foundation to push for transparency:

Jon Henke of the Next Right took issue with the idea that the Right was ever behind in terms of using technology. In an email statement he said:

"The Right has not been behind in "technology". Technology is a commodity, available to everybody. What the Right has been missing is motivation. When Republicans were in power, innovation didn't seem necessary. Now, the technology adoption gap is closing because the Right is motivated again.

I have to admit that I am disappointed that the Right has not led the charge on transparency at the federal level. Republican politicians and the conservative/libertarian movements have allowed left-of-center groups like the Sunlight Foundation run with that issue. Politicians and organizations on the Right should have been leading the transparency movement at the federal level."

t r u t h o u t: New Legislation Will Bring Light to Government's Dark Spaces
TruthOut has an article about POIA that quotes the Sunlight Foundation's Ellen Miller and includes the legislation launch video:

On Tuesday, Rep. Steve Israel (D-New York) introduced a banner piece of legislation to create greater governmental transparency by making public government information available online. The bill, the Public Online Information Act (POIA), directly confronts the problem that massive quantities of government data and documentation are still largely inaccessible because they are difficult to find and difficult to read, despite being designated as "public,"according to Israel.

An article about the Obama administration and the goals of transparency that mentions the work of the Sunlight Foundation, including the Apps for America contest:

"Watchdogs immediately weighed in too and began to fill in what "unprecedented" transparency should mean. The Sunlight Foundation, the group behind Apps for America, suggested government information should not be considered public until it's posted online -- and freely accessible -- in an easily downloaded format. Andrew Rasiej, founder of the Personal Democracy Forum, called for a similar standard: "Almost all our public sphere is now online. Our information should be there too.""
