Transparency In Action
Take a look at Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand's website for her Sunlight Report. If I were one of her constituents, boy, would I feel great knowing that she was so comfortable with what she is doing in the Capital she'd post it online. Of course, as an advocate for greater transparency, I do love it. We hope (and expect) to see a lot of other lawmakers following her lead.
We have noticed that Rep. Michael Capuano has been posting a schedule of sorts since 1999. But a quick review of it suggests that he's never ever met with a lobbyist. Hmmmm. That's just quite believable, is it?
Let us know if you know of other lawmakers who are even making an attempt at disclosing their schedules.
