His mission: Post "every dime, online, in real time." Last year, OpenTheBooks.com successfully captured $6 trillion in government-spending records, including nearly all disclosed federal government spending (since 2000); 49 of 50 state checkbooks (sued California for its state checkbook); and 23 million public employee salary and pension records from 50,000 public bodies across America.
