FYI - If you haven't Google Alerted yourself, go do it now. Sometimes you'll find interesting stuff, sometimes you'll find crazy stuff, but at least you'll know if someone puts your name online.
Today's case in point: My Google Alert sent me to this page at Opensecrets.org. I think we can safely file this one under "Get a life." Someone took the time, and apparently a lot of it, to figure out, expense by expense, who the Democratic Party paid, and for what, during the last election cycle. Strangely enough, I show up on the list twice. The first one is my first paycheck, with my middle initial. After that, we dropped the middle initial, really, the "J" was just getting between me and my fans.
Anyway, I clicked on the other entry under me and found this. Here's the item-by-item analysis of my short period with the IDP. As you can see, I was a glutton for election day expenses.
But honestly, beyond checking to see what my co-workers made, I couldn't find any useful use for this site. and i'm a political geek. Does OpenSecrets.org really think anyone cares about the $5 the Dems spent at Loaf N Jug #28 on July 22 for "travel?"
