The Spoils in the Chamber of Deputies
I really liked this picture. The article it accompanies details the divvying up of committees in the Chamber of Deputies. The final tally pretty closely mirrored the vote totals in the July election: 20 of the 44 committees went to the PRI (including the budget committee), 12 to the PAN (including finance), six to the PRD, three to the Green Party, and one each to the Workers Party (which is actually the foreign relations committee, under the stewardship of Porfirio Muñoz Ledo), Convergencia, and Panal.
