The Obama Team’s Disclosure Documents

Olga Pierce and Christopher Weaver, ProPublica -- April 8, 2009 2:30 pm EDT

Updated May 26: This chart has been updated. New ethics letters are in red.

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.

Shoot us an e-mail and we'll highlight your findings, like Jane Johnson's finding on Interior Secretary Ken Salazar. And, if rummaging through documents is your thing, send a note to our editor of distributed reporting, Amanda Michel. She’ll alert you for our next document project.
