Right, this is what I plugged in that I think gives the result you're asking
for:

 
http://congress.techpolitics.org/contributions22504.php?sort_field=cbc%20des
c,%20net_receipts&sort_order=asc

I've had to contrive the parameters a bit to work around the way you're
processing them, but hopefully you get the idea.

Just to over-egg the pudding a bit, I thought I'd extend the idea slightly
and give you one more example:

 
http://congress.techpolitics.org/contributions22504.php?sort_field=cbc%20des
c,state%20asc,%20net_receipts&sort_order=desc

Cheers!

Mike
