A 16 yr. old kid has created a plug-in for browsers that, when you hover over the name of a member of congress mentioned on any webpage, popups to give you a list of donations made to that congressperson from lobbyists, corporations, etc.  Right now it has numbers for 2012 but he’s working on getting it to 2014.
