It's all about the money...

If anyone wonders how much their elected reps are getting, check out the Dirty Energy Moneysite, which features an interactive tool that tracks the flow of contributions to the US Congress. Visit the site and enter in a ZIP code, politician, or company name into the search field and find out which companies are pumping their dirty money into politics and which politicians are receiving it.

I wish the stuff we saw publicly was as far down as the rabbit hole goes. Unfortunately knowing the relentless greed of many of these corporations and people this probably isn't even the tray that holds the iced cake.
