Lessig decides against running for Congress

Larry Lessig has decided that he is not going to run for Congress after all.

"After lots of thinking and advice, I have decided it does not make sense for the Change Congress movement for me to a run for Congress in CA12. We would have just over 30 days to introduce a district to me and to an idea. That would not be enough time to convince them to turn away from an extremely popular politician with 30 years of public service. And while anyone within the district would understand that, outside the district, the lesson would be that a "Change Congress" message has no salience or support. That would, in my view, harm the movement more than it would help."
