Political maps of US neighbourhood

Fundrace Website locally tracks political donations.

Using records of contributions by all citizens totalling more than $200 to a single campaign, FundRace designs donation statistics on a map of the U.S., down to street-level accuracy.

But voyeurist users can write down any name or address and get a detailed list of all the donors living around, the name of their favourite candidates and the amount sent to them.

What’s more, the service is available via mobile phone, taking the user GPS location, and finding the nearest individual donors of campaign funds.

“People’s privacy, says FundRace creator Mike Frumin, falls second to providing transparency and political accountability to fundraising. ”
