Lessig Won't Run for Congress

Categories: Politics

lessig.jpgFree culture champion and Stanford law professor, Larry Lessig announced today that he won't be running for Congress this year. He explains his decision in a video posted on his blog, in which he says that if the purpose of his running for congress was to inspire change, then losing big (and this seemed a likely outcome) would be counteractive. Ralph Nader, are you taking notes? All the money raised for the campaign-that-never-was will be donated to Lessig's Change Congress movement that hopes to limit the influence of money on the legislative and electoral process.
