I am Solomon Kahn, Harvard Fellow, visualizer of who gives money to US federal politicians. Ask me where your politician raises money from, and I'll make a screencast showing you!AMA!
My short bio: I'm Solomon Kahn, former fellow at the Harvard University Safra Center For Ethics, and I've built a super powerful tool to explore who gives money to federal politicians. At my day job I run the data team at Paperless Post.
I'm currently running a kickstarter for the tool so I can help journalists use it. You can find the kickstarter here: http://kck.st/1DG57W4. The tool will be free, open source, and open to the public, launching in a few months.
Bring me your Senators and Congresspeople, and I'll make a screencast about who they raise money from!

Edit: Wow, so happy this is blowing up! I'm going to stay and continue to do videos for a while. To me, the most exciting thing about this project is that when this launches, people on reddit can go through the politicians themselves, and submit all the interesting things they find to be put on the politicians's page, and sent directly to journalists. The fact this is becoming popular gives me so much hope that I'll achieve my crazy dream for this project, that we can do complete campaign finance research on every single politician. If you want more details on this, check out the kickstarter video: http://kck.st/1DG57W4
Edit 2 I can't do anymore screencasts tonight, but since there seems to be so much interest, I'll do a part 2 in two weeks on Sunday June 14th. There are tons of politicians I didn't get to, including Obama vs. Romney and a bunch of the other presidential races, so hopefully we can cover that next time.
