It’s a plugin actually for Chrome and Safari (Firefox coming soon) that tells you who is contributing cash to your representative in Congress. According to the website The Bulletin, the plugin — called Greenhouse — “automatically highlights the name of any US lawmaker that appears on whichever webpage you happen to browsing…. With Greenhouse, you can follow the money and see the role of corruption plays in any issue whenever you read the news.”
The program was developed by a 16-year-old self-taught programmer named Nicholas Rubin, who is quoted as saying:
It is my hope that providing increased transparency around the amount and source of funding of our elected representatives may play a small role in educating citizens and promoting change….
The motto of Greenhouse is: “Some are red. Some are blue. All are green.”
Here is a screenshot of the application in action:
