The Washington Post Campaign Finance API is a collection of resources that represent a fraction of what is available from the Federal Election Commission financial data. The API will eventually represent all of what the FEC has.
The FEC data is thorough, but is presented in a hard format to use. The API functionality is designed to alleviate that issue for the developer by abstracting the tougher data. This allows developers to build applications quickly instead of sifting through FEC data.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
