ProPublica creates list of Obama administration's disclosure data

ProPublica organized a handy list of financial disclosure records and ethical agreements from President Barack Obama's administration.

President Obama's administration came to Washington pledging transparency and accountability in government. The White House has demanded strict new ethics requirements and signed pledges from appointees to abide by the rules. The records don't seem to be available from single office, and moreover the government insists on giving them out by request only.

We're cutting out the middleman, and posting them, in a single location, for the first time.
