Wonder who's funding whom? Or who your politician is really working for?
If you've ever tried looking for Texas campaign finance reports using the Texas Ethics Commission website, chances are you didn't get very far. You probably had questions like: Which politicians are we talking about here? What's up with all the "filer" types? Why can't I track donations across multiple election cycles? Why are there so many PACs? Who do they support? and Can I search by donor?
Enter Influence Texas.
Whether you're a policy wonk or a legislative novice, you can use Influence Texas to easily figure out where the money is coming from and which direction it's flowing. We've made a simple directory of statewide elected officials that will fit in the palm of your hand. You can see who funded a politician — and who funded the funders who funded that politician.
