Following the Money

It's not a java game or a flash animation, but I'm having major fun playing "follow the money" with PoliticalMoneyLine. You can search by candidate, but also by zip in the South Valley zip of 87105, I looked there and found some guy gave "Pete's Political Action Committee" $1,000 recently (look for Randall Gurule), which makes sense when you see the contract won by said Mr. Gurule and his Wiley Coyote rip-off named company, ACME Worldwide Enterprises, Inc. $1,000 to get $1.1 million, who needs the lottery? Oh wait....that's just the start, here's another government contract for $5M. Who says the South Valley can't be like the big boys. Haliburton, move over!

Now in all fairness, Mr. Gurule gave the $1,000 AFTER he received the contracts. I guess in that case it's more of a far less than 15%.
