More Distributed Journalism

The Sunlight Foundation, which is sponsoring our Political Transparency project, has a new request for the public — this time helping out on the Congressional Spouse Project:

First, we want to find out how many members of the House of Representatives hire their spouses to work for their campaigns—paying them a salary from campaign contributions. (We’ll add a version for tracking the Senate soon.) Second, we want to begin developing tools that allow Citizen Journalists to record the results of their research, preserving the connections they find in unrelated collections of data.

This looks like something anyone can do. Lots of folks should give it a whirl.
