Thanks Jeffrey - and sorry for the delay getting this merged. For now, I went ahead and pruned it down to just the main dataset.

Cool. A friend forwarded me this paper... I'm not that familiar with Benford's, but is there some literature outlining or quantifying its uses so people know how to apply it and what they can learn from it? http://www.vote.caltech.edu/drupal/node/327
