• /us/?q=moran
    • lists candidates as former reps
  • /p/jim_moran
    • last election data missing for 2008 (right now we're getting this from the Almanac of American Politics; we need to get 2008 election information somewhere else.)
    • do sparklines and ranking for number of votes received in last election
    • money
      • no indication of which cycle it comes from (this data is from ../data/crawl/fec/2008/weball.dat in the total_receipts field; that means it's from the 2008 cycle)
      • update FEC data -- ../data/crawl/fec/2008/weball.dat hasn't been updated since June.. need to get it from the FEC
      • percentages don't sum to 100 (the denominator is the total_receipts field, which seems to include loans from the candidate, loans from other sources, "contributions from pc" (which is not part of "contributions from other pc"), as well as other money that isn't accounted for by any column in the data file.) check the docs
    • when sparklines are tied for zero, we still list him as #32
    • voting analysis info unclear (yeah, to me too; is there an explanation of this on the origin site
      • 53% left-wing for waxman?
    • multiple congresses
      • A: compare across time for the years you have [LONG-TERM]
      • A: career comparisons [LONG-TERM]
    • interest group alignment
      • A: need to standardize names [WAITING ON MAPLIGHT]
      • MAPLight source info needs to go right below interest group alignment
      • maplight link should go right to legislator page (we don’t have the MAPLight politician ID or any per-politician information from MAPLight, and the MAPLight legislator page doesn't have any information about interest group alignment. Implementing this would require crawling or otherwise acquiring the politician mapping from MAPLight.)
      • R: show dates Need help with this. Can't seem to get it to render in python template. Kragen says data is coming from /data/crawl/maplight which is not in my sandbox
    • handshakes
      • mantech gave more than 2300 for the cycle
      • need to include PACs
      • combine by cycle, not year
      • handshakes should have pages themselves
        • look for the biggest handshakes
    • top contributors
      • need date range info
      • N/A and self need to be merged
      • top lobby contributors
      • PAC treasurers get listed as contributing personally
  • /p/by/ pages
    • need source and date
    • better titles (fixed)
    • need to display numbers properly (fixed)
      • percents
      • amounts
  • /p/bobby_jindal
    • R: highlight that he's a former member of congress I determined this from the lastelectedyear. Kragen may have a better solution.
  • /contrib/?from=mantech%20international&to=jim_moran&point=2300
    • R: labeling needs to be clearer this should function more like the empl page listing number of employees but specific to lawmaker. see http://webchick.watchdog.net/empl/mantech%20international (but here both employer and the lawmaker are fixed, so it'll be a single line if that's put like empl page)
