Wednesday, August 11th, 2004 · 2 Comments puts your political contributions into the public domain. It’s really interesting to look at the Money Maps, browse the city donation maps (to see that individuals at 101 California represent the biggest Republican contributors in San Francisco), and even search by name for your friends and family.

I donate often to and the Kerry-Edwards campaign, and recently gave some money directly to the DNC when some kids from Burlington did some canvassing around here. But I don’t (yet?) see my name listed at

Jen and I hung out with Justin last night to help celebrate his birthday. Someone brought up a good point: This country spends ridiculous amounts of money (hundreds of millions of dollars in this presidential election year alone) getting its officials into office. No wonder the rest of the world hates us. Imagine if we put just a portion of that money to funding education or healthcare or feeding the hungry.

But such is the nature of the beast in this great country. So let’s take back the White House. Donate to the MoveOn PAC Leave No Voter Behind Victory Drive.

    Here’s another site to try querying:

    I have a family member who donates through PACs, and I notice that his contributions don’t show up on Fundrace but do showup on opensecrets…

    But the only donation I see from a Mr. A_nderson is going to Bush, and that is likely not you… harhar.

    The reason why your name is not listed is that you have to contribute over a certain dollar amount for it to be registered. I think the amount is either $100 or $200 dollars.

    I have given a lot of money to Dean, Kerry and other congressional races, but always at $25 or $50 a pop. So I am never listed.
