No More Secret Trips to Russell or Cannon Basements

Hill veterans know that the Senate and House release regular expenditure reports for all congressional offices, including salaries. As PoliticalWire accurately puts it, "staffers [make] regular trips to the library to page through large volumes of public records to see what their colleagues were paid."

No more hush-hus trips to the basements of the Russell or Cannon buildings. A new site, LegiStorm, has searched all the data and posted all staff salary info online for the first time.

Of course, the site is now running very slow. All traffic from 20515 and 20510 zip codes presumably. But once it comes back up, we'll be on the lookout for gems.
