The privacy of our customers has always been very important to the Federal Election Commission. We have never required individuals to identify themselves when they come to our offices or contact us by phone. Our concern for your privacy continues in the electronic age. That view underlies our policy, stated below: If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not necessarily identify you personally. We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit: We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors -- to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals, organizations or their visits.

Primary Scoop is a non-partisan, free information service provided by Griffin Strategy Group of Concord, New Hampshire. exclusives have been picked up by the Washington Post, the Washington Times, the Weekly Standard, National Review, National Journal's Hotline, the Des Moines Register, and Campaigns and Elections -- to name just a few.

In August 1999 alone, our traffic grew by more than 250% over the previous month. Since we launched as an independent site earlier this year, the number of monthly visitors has grown by more than 3,000%. Our daily email subscription list has averaged 100% growth every month.

The roster of organizations that generate the most traffic to our site regularly includes all of the presidential campaigns of both parties, the members and staff of the U.S. House and Senate, the national party committees, and national media outlets like CNN, ABC, the Wall Street Journal, and US News and World Report.

Mother Jones

The Mother Jones 400

MOTHER JONES' third annual survey and searchable database of the country's top 400 political donors.

Nov./Dec. 1998

In this, our third annual Mother Jones 400, you'll see how the wealthy enjoy more than their fair share of access to politicians because of the money they spend, and how that access appears to help their businesses. You'll also see how the occasional big contributor, such as No. 4 Carl Lindner, gives so much money that his largesse transcends ideology and he wields equal power in both parties.
