More data!

We've added even more data to the site. Now politician pages feature data from the FEC -- the Federal Election Commission, which tracks all usage of money in politics. FEC data includes things like the amount of money raised, who it was raised from, and so on. We hope to have even more (actually, a lot more) FEC data soon, but hopefully this provides an interesting start.

We've also added some more personal data from our friends over at Project Vote Smart. The data includes things like a politician's nickname and educational history, all of which we now provide on politician pages.

I hope you enjoy the new features and stay tuned for some even more exciting stuff tonight and later this week.
