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.
It is based largely off of the Sunlight Foundation's Data Commons (github: sunlightlabs), but is simpler/smaller in scope and also accomodates all election cycles.
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
