Donor Transparency App--free

Donor Transparency App--free

Postby Lily » Wed Jul 18, 2012 3:34 pm

Frustrated by the lack of donor transparency in our elections?

"Priorities USA Action" "Restore Our Future" "American Bridge 21st Century" "American Crossroad" "Americans for Prosperity"

Many millions of dollars are pouring in to influence who you vote for. Who are these folks?

Created by two recent grads from Harvard Kennedy School in the MIT's Media Lab, using the Super PAC App viewers can ID who these ads are coming from. Downloading the app is free. (Link below)

"While watching a political TV ad, a user can hold up her phone to identify the commercial and receive objective, third-party information. The Super PAC App allows the user to rate the ad, while understanding who and how much money is behind the ad, what claims the ad is making, and whether those claims are based on facts."

Also provides web links for more information. Wow.

Here it is: http://www.superpacapp.org/
