Campaign Finance and Events APIs added to Library

June 15 2012

Just in time to aid in hacking at this weekend’s Hack’n Jill, we’ve added Choreos for three new APIs to our Library:

New York Times Event Listings
Search the NYTimes for events by location, categories, and keywords.

New York Times Campaign Finance
A dataset on political candidates and campaign donations, expenditures, and contributors.

Influence Explorer
A data aggregator and tool to access data on campaign finance, lobbying, earmarks, and federal spending data; by Sunlight Foundation’s technology arm, Sunlight Labs.

These join our family of Choreos for 70+ of the most-utilized APIs.

We wish the hackers an exhilarating weekend — happy making!
