Featured Doer: Ellen Miller

Among a relatively small but influential coterie of online political thinkers
in Washington, D.C., Miller is the reigning queen of transparency. And for good reason: As co-founder and executive director of the non-profit Sunlight Foundation, Miller has been a longtime advocate of government transparency and accountability -- a non-partisan movement that has attracted a growing following in the era of Google and Facebook, PDF files and iPhone apps.

Sunlight is just the third organization in the field of money and politics that Miller has founded. The Center for Responsive Politics was created in 1983 and Public Campaign kicked off in 1997. But it's her work at Sunlight that's garnered the most attention. WIRED magazine listed her as one of "15 People The Next President Should Listen To." Have you called yet, President Obama?

She is one of 15 candidates for a video interview in our HuffPost Spotlight Series, presented by HP. The top five question-getters will be interviewed using your questions.

Question submissions for the Spotlight Series are now closed. Thank you for your questions and stay tuned for our interviews with the top five question-getters!
