These are wrappers for some of the various apis that expose government information.
They are created using HTTParty, which is awesome.
This API is flaky, to say the least. The method calls don’t work consistently.
New York Times
New York Times has a congressional API. It’s documented here: http://developer.nytimes.com/docs/congress_api
These wrappers are not complete, the New York Times one in particular really needs to have a cleaner API rather than just mapping directly to the API methods.
These wrappers stem from a blog post I wrote on the topic of government data exposed via web services
