Larry Lessig, Corruption, Tumblr, and The Supreme Court

Professor Larry Lessig has submitted a brief to the Supreme Court in a case arguing that limiting large political contributions is Constitutional and exactly what the Framers had in mind when they used the word corruption.

As part of the evidence he has submitted in his brief, Larry created a Tumblr with 325 citations from the Framers themselves showing that they had a very broad understanding of the word corruption. This will be the first time that a Tumblr has been submitted as evidence in a Supreme Court case.

Today at noon eastern, Larry and Senator Elizabeth Warren will have a livestreamed discussion about the Supreme Court case. The stream is on YouTube and the live chat will be held at the Constitutional Accountability Center. Please tune into the stream at noon eastern if you are interested in limiting the effect of money (ie corruption) on our elected officials. I certainly am.
