Just finished listening to Larry Lessig’s kickoff speech for his new Change Congress campaign. It made me wonder if there might be a lesson for our Campaign. Here’s the start of their campaign description:
Change Congress is a movement to build support for basic reform in how our government functions. Using our tools, both candidates and citizens can pledge their support for basic changes to reduce the distorting influence of money in Washington. Our community will link candidates committed to a reform with volunteers and contributors who support it.
Their “tools” are digital and one of the early ones is a map headed “Sludge color = PAC money” which some might find inspiring. Zoom in on your congress member and see the color of your district. Mine is a bit too “sludgie” to my liking.
