Political Fundraising? It’s Party Time!

The Sunlight Foundation has launched a new web site, Party Time!, which aims to document the political party circuit — not “political parties” as in “GOP” and “Democratic,” but parties as in champagne, food, golf… and money: “the social whirl surrounding politicians in their quests to raise cash to run their campaigns.”

There is a searchable database that lets you track parties thrown at the 2008 Democratic and Republican National Conventions as well as fundraising activities by all lawmakers running for Congress that happen all year round going back to 2006.
