weshowthemoney is a visual approch to the US election donation.

We have taken the data from National Institute on Money in State Politics a nonpartisan organization dedicated to the documentation and research on campaign financing at the state level.

For now we have used only data about Governors elected in 2006 and the top 100 donors. Currently we show only donors who donated to more than one candidate or a single donation bigger than 100000 $.

The images here are the result of our first attempt to show the data using the fantastic prefuse visualization library .
You can try our latest beta here.
We are also working on a Italian version with the data of italian stockholders

P.S. Donation or Bribery ?
