My friend Eddie Tejeda, has been working on an awesome site called, “LittleSis” which is an “unvoluntary Facebook for powerful Americans.” The relationships of politicians, their donors, CEOs, lobbyists, non-profit directors are made transparent through a combination of crowdsourced labor and accessing public databases. The site is a project of Public Accountability Support from the Sunlight Foundation.
It’s sort of like playing “Six Degrees from Kevin Bacon,” except with American elite, like Madeline Albright who is connect with soon to be former FCC commissioner Kevin J Martin. Their connection? The Aspen Institute.
