...what is Lessig's new SuperPAC going to accomplish? Will it even fund its first-round goals? Outside of nerdy, academic circles, does Lessig have any name recognition? Do we know for sure that money = influence in anything other than the long term (decades)? Look at the last election cycle: the Republican Tea Party did pretty poorly, considering the vast sums of money that was spent. How do we that this money wouldn't be better spent other ways?
There are just too many unanswered questions, which, seeing that this is coming from a thinker like Lessig, is pretty disappointing.
