A python app for importing all Federal Election Commission records from 1980 onward into a PostgreSQL database. These are the master files, updated weekly to an FTP server.

By Luke Rosiak of The Washington Times. Released under GNU license. To run: createdb datacommons python manage.py fecmasterrunonce 1990 [or whatever start year] once a week: python manage.py fecmasterrunweekly
