Anyone know the URL of the site in this article? It's an interesting (if misguided) opinion piece about a database that lets you look up campaign donors by zip code. Only he never gets around to giving you the address.

the site you're looking for is http:\\ it used to have a place to enter zip codes on the main page but it seems to be gone. too bad it was really cool. it showed scans of handwritten docs with names, addresses, and the amounts of the contributions.
