Over the pond there has been a big scandal in the British parliment over the expenses paid to members of Parliment. The Guardian's data blog recaps some of it, and has a visualization of the whole thing. One of life's little ironies is that the independent journalist who really pushed the whole issue over there is Heather Brooke who was actually born in Pennsylvania. The bios never specify where in Pennsylvania, but maybe it was Harrisburg?
