Lessig's latest statement of case

Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig has initiated an email newsletter. In the first newsletter, he advised that, in connection with the Mayday PAC, he has written a medium-length piece pulling the arguments together about the problem with the way political campaigns are funded in America today. Below I have reproduced his newsletter item about this, which includes a link to his new piece and also a link for subscribing to the newsletter.

A deep dive on Super PACs

I’ve written three books, gaggles of articles, gaggles^2 of essays, and a billion (or so) tweets about the problem with the way we fund campaigns in America today. But on the launch of our Mayday PAC, I was pushed by many to commit to writing a medium-length piece pulling the arguments together. I did. It is published, appropriately enough, on the cool new platform, Medium. You can read it here. (And if I were soliciting, it would be here I’d say something like “pledge if you can” but you see, I’m not doing that.)

That’s all for the week. If you’ve got stuff I should see, email it to (if I use anything, I will always give credit where credit is due). And remember, you will only get this again if you subscribe here.
