This Is Larry. He Has A Brilliant Plan To Take Down Politicians Who Are Screwing You Over.

We've got a bit of a situation on our hands. Money has so much influence over American politics that a recent study by researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities found that "the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy." It's an outright corruption of our political system, and it's blocking progress on nearly every issue out there. The good news is that most people refuse to accept this is the way things should be. Enter Harvard Law professor Lawrence Lessig. Two months ago, Lessig launched America's first crowdfunded Super PAC. Their mission is simple: Find politicians who oppose reform, and take them down.
