So as we consider this seriously, I realize we need some serious advice and help with federal election law (amazingly, it turns out federal law is not terribly clear about some stuff). I’d be grateful for any volunteers. Send an email with some of your experience to lessig@lessig08.org.

    CA or DC-based?

    My vote for game-changing rule alteration is for lifting most/all restrictions on campaign spending, BUT putting in place one simple rule: No political advertising on television. Any other medium is fine. But no TV.

    As a non-citizen resident in the US I can’t help. But I would if I could!

    You can still try to help a Lessig campaign Ross, even if you aren’t a US citizen.

    Well, I am not volunteer but would like to join these (extra?) lessons. I am exchange student at the University…

    I wonder if you could get the endorsement of the Pirate Party (PPUS) in California?..

  • JC

    The PP is not organized in the State of California, but I have no doubt that the national party, to the extent it exists, would be supportive of the campaign.

    I’d be tremendously interested in helping, if only I knew anything about federal election laws. All I have is an interdisciplinary passion for technology and politics and a little experience working in the Senate. But I’ll be watching for how I can help…

    Hi, I would love to help as I believe that what you are doing will be a positive force for change, but unfortunately I am a citizen of the UK, not the US. What are the options for me, Grant?
