US transparency blog "world's best"

Deutsche Welle, the German international broadcast service has awarded the US Sunlight Foundation its 2006 award as best blog in the world.

Sunlight Foundation is about increasing transparency in government, in particular by enabling citizens to learn more about what Congress and their elected representatives are doing.

It recently reported that 40 citizen volunteers had helped figure out that Congress is a family business, finding that 19 members had paid their spouses a total of $US636,000 this year.
