Draft Lessig, Change Congress – why not?
Today the New York Times too covers the story, after tuesday launch of the Lessig08/Change Congress campaign with a related video and other stories on the web. Very good!
Here’s the NYT article opening: Lawrence Lessig, the Web legal scholar, said Wednesday that he was mulling a campaign for the House of Representatives, a move that could pit the Internet icon in a race against a Democratic loyalist.
Mr. Lessig would run for the seat left vacant by the Feb. 11 death of Representative Tom Lantos, who represented the 12th District of California for nearly 14 terms. The district, south of San Francisco, runs straight through the heart of Silicon Valley, where Mr. Lessig is considered a celebrity, though one who wears glasses and uses phrases like “net neutrality.”
