The Center for Responsive Politics is not so “lefty” —

I’m also a big fan of Open Secrets, and the group behind it (the Center for Responsive Politics). Over the years they have gathered and posted tons of data in an evenhanded and user-friendly fashion, providing a real service to serious but time-strapped voters. For example, as you may recall, they presented clear and timely information prior to the 2008 election showing Obama received far more Wall Street money than did McCain.

Full disclosure: my sister, Sheila Krumholz, is CRP’s Executive Director. She’s a person of scrupulous integrity. We may not always agree politically, but she is no ideologue: she would never fudge data or manipulate data analysis parameters in order to promote an agenda, and she wouldn’t condone it being done by others at CRP. If the analysis in question was flawed in its design due to a desire on the part of the author to hide the true amount of union spending in the 2010 election, Sheila will address it.
