Campaign Finance and Events APIs added to Library

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!
