Sunlight Foundation promotes more Congressional transparency

Hey, the folks at the Sunlight Foundation are doing even more to promote transparency at Congress, thereby enhancing their anticorruption efforts.

The deal is that the current Congress has accomplished very little, despite being controlled by one party. Part of the reason is that they spend very little time actually governing. The Sunlight people want them accountable, at least for their time, so they're launching the The Punch Clock Campaign

We are offering members of the public a "goodwill bounty," or fee, of $1,000 for each Member of Congress, and $250 for each candidate, that they persuade to sign the Punch Clock Agreement, an agreement to put their daily schedules on the Internet.

Members of Congress work for us, and we should know what they do every day.
