This is so cool. It's a browser plugin that inserts hover links where politicians' names are on the page. Hover to see a quick card detailing what lobbies their biggest donations come from, and what percent are <$200. Reading about a political issue? Easily see who's in a conflict of interest. Click to learn more details about their contributions, and positions on specific campaign finance reform proposals. Their landing page says it well: "Puts vital data where it’s most relevant so you can discover the real impact of money on our political system."

Oh - and the creator is a 16 years old high school sophomore: Not even old enough to vote, but old enough to use tech to add transparency for those who can. Super cool.
