Collectibles: In Search of Non-Corrupt Politicians

A Frihost Forum thread — described at http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-21723.html and launched on 1 January 2006 — is in search of not-at-all-corrupt politicians. This Collection section contains supplemental information for that search, as collected by The Philosopher Princess. But this is a group effort, so relevant information is needed from anyone who has it. (Frihosters can post to the forum, while others would have to convince a Frihoster to take it on as their own.)

A goal is to keep this material up-to-date reflecting the search in progress. The design herein, as well as the data, will change depending on the work in progress. Suggestions for additions and improvements will be welcomed.
