NationBuilder Ties With Candidate Check
Los Angeles-based NationBuilder, a startup developing an online set of tools for political candidates, said over the weekend that it has tied in with a tool which does a background check on candidates. The firm said it has integrated Candidate Check, a service which allows political candidates to show their own, "Candidate Trusted Seal" showing they've been vetted by a third party source, including information on employment history, military records, criminal background, and more. Financial details of the link were not disclosed. NationBuilder is backed by Andreessen Horowitz along with a long list of angels; the founders of the firm is Jim Gilliam, formerly CTO at Business.com.
