- Bailout (non)Transparency
OpenTheGovernment.org has set up a Bailout Transparency page on our website.  
If you are concerned about what you don’t know about the bailout, please check 
it out.
Currently, it is primarily news stories because that is all we know. 
Any credible solution to today's economic crisis must address one of the 
crisis' fundamental causes - corruption and other abuses of power sustained by 
secrecy. Unfortunately, thus far the government has been slow to let the public 
know how it is using taxpayer money to help out ailing financial markets. 
OpenTheGovernment.org is working to build a clearinghouse of information about 
the lack of transparency in the bailout.
Please help us ensure the clearinghouse is as comprehensive as possible by 
emailing us news and resources.  We are working with a number of groups to 
explore opportunities for advocacy for transparency and accountability in this 
area and welcome your thoughts.
Patrice McDermott, Director 
202.332.OPEN (6736)
