New Blog: National Institute on Money in State Politics

Helena, MT-The National Institute on Money in State Politics is pleased to announce the launch of its new blog, The Money Tale

The Institute staff invites you to visit their blog, The Money Tale, where they will share their unique perspective on campaign finances and money in politics to complement political news reports and issue analysis.  Through this blog we hope to foster thoughtful and productive debate surrounding issues of transparency and disclosure in the political process, while providing reliable, accurate and easily attainable information to the public. 

We welcome constructive comments and feedback, and encourage users to spread the word about the growing importance of following the money.  With many chapters left to be written, The Money Tale is still a work in progress, but with your help we hope to create an invaluable public resource.  Please feel free to link to our blog from your own, or cite us in your work.

The nonprofit, nonpartisan National Institute on Money in State Politics collects and analyzes campaign contribution information on state-level candidates, political party committees, and ballot committees. Its free, searchable database of contributions, as well as its blog, "The Money Tale" is available online at
