Democracy South.  DS tracks how campaign contributions influence public policy, with a special focus on the South and looks at ways to combat the overall influence of money on politics.

Common Cause.  Common Cause promotes open, honest and accountable government; lobbies for reform legislation; and regularly publishes investigative research on the effects of money in politics.

Move On.  This is a powerful, effective site, mobilizing progressives on a wide variety of domestic and foreign issues, including Bush & Co.'s Iraq policy.

Public Campaign.  Public Campaign aims to dramatically reduce the role of special-interest money in America's elections and the influence of big contributors in American politics.

Fannie Lou Hamer Project.  The FLHP works on a number of fronts to redefine electoral corruption as a civil rights issue critical to African-Americans.
