I had a quick look and found
http://cantorva.com/2009NS/twfyl-lod-demo/vocab/ based on searching
for 'theyworkforyou' (see
http://www.mysociety.org/projects/theyworkforyou/ ) and 'rdf'. There
was also a thread ages ago on the FOAF list about describing the

For US, GovTrack might be of interest:

Hope this helps,
