Keeping a Closer Eye on Your Reps

New Web program takes you there

After Congress approved the $700 billion bailout for the banking industry, Paul Everton went online to see how his representative in Congress voted.

He couldn't find out, the Sun-Times reports.

"I went to eight different Web sites," said Everton, 29, who lives in Bucktown. "I couldn't understand why this was so difficult -- and I'm a technical person."

So, Everton and a buddy came up with "Visual Vote," a new Web program that offers the information at your fingertips.
