Lawrence Lessig's Super PAC wants to kill Super PACs - Lessing talks to Ezra Klein on VOX.com



http://www.vox.com/2014/6/30/5857450/lawrence-lessigs-super-pac-wants-to-kill-super-pacs

Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig believes he’s found a way to fight — and possibly end — superPACs  forever. But first, he needs to form a SuperPAC of his own. Lessig talked to Ezra Klein about how big money influences policy, why he launched his own superPAC, and how to make politicians listen — really listen — to ordinary Americans.

The Super PAC To End All Super PACs Reaches Major Fundraising Goal

Lessig said that while 2014 would offer a proving ground for the effort to reform campaign finance, supporters may ultimately have to wait until the next election to see any results.

"The pundits say 'America doesn’t care about this issue.' This is America caring. And this is America demanding something more. Ideally now. But if we have to wait till 2016, then ok: Because by 2016, we’re going to elect a Congress that will fundamentally change how campaigns are funded. You have guaranteed it," Lessig said.
