I’ve been working on a project inspired by the Center for Investigative Reporting and moderated by Kaggle. I used a network analysis of the movement of money between campaign committees to measure the extent to which different campaigns and different committees were more or less independent, controlling, or broadly influential. It turns out that corporations have the most broadly influential committees while the most seasoned congressional candidates are the most independent. However, when you look at the committees that are the most controlling or dependent, things get a bit interesting. You can download the report and raw results at Influence, Control, Dependent, and Independent. The code will be up soon.
