Legistorm Storm

LegiStorm is a web-database with information on the salaries of all Congressional staff.  (It was started by a friend, Jock Friedly.)  You can find data, for example, on which representatives spend the most say on press secretaries.  The salary data has always been "public" on paper, but now that it’s available on the web staff are comparing salaries and wondering why it is that that cute intern is paid so much more than the rest.  Of course, the politicians are not happy and are trying to shut Legistorm down.
