Look, someone has to pore over the reports coming from the Government Accountability Office, various Inspectors General, and sundry ad hoc committees.
Someone has to file Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, hold the legislative and executive branches' feet to the fire, audit Open Government Plans, and examine court documents.
Someone has to dive into the weeds in the name of creating a more effective, open, ethical, and accountable federal government.
Maybe you can sense where we're going with this. POGO's had one heck of a year, but we need your help in order to carry these efforts forward in 2011. We don't take contributions from the government, corporations, unions, or anyone with a financial stake in the outcome of our investigations. That leaves you, dear readers. If you can find it in your hearts to make a contribution—whether it's $5 or $5,000—we would be most grateful.
Help us fight for a more effective, accountable, ethical, and open federal government and make a donation today.
