The folks at the Sunlight Foundation have been hard at work churning out projects to engage and inform the public about the government's dealings. Among them:
OpenCongress brings together official government data with news and blog coverage to give you the real story behind each bill. OpenCongress is a free, open-source, non-profit, and non-partisan web resource with a mission to help make Congress more transparent and to encourage civic engagement.

I love the Senate and House's "non-partisan" profiles. The photos look straight out of the Onion's "American Voices." And all that data analysis on the profiles? Something screams Fantasy Congress about it all.
