Project Launch: IAVA Action's Congressional Report Card 2010

A project we (New Leaf Digital) built for the Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America just launched: their 2010 Congressional Report Card. Built in Drupal, the Report Card uses Sunlight Lab's Congress API for legislator lookups, Yahoo's PlaceFinder API for geocoding addresses, and IAVA's vote history and grade data to show how the organization rates your representatives on their veterans-related votes.

This functionality is highly portable, so if you work for or know of an organization that would like to implement something similar, we'd like to hear from you.
