In the wake of the death of California's 12th district Representative Tom Lantos, students are calling for Lawrence Lessig, cyberlaw and copyright intellectual, to run to replace him. A website popped up called DraftLessig.org along with a corresponding Facebook group. The group was 1,000 members strong in the first 24 hours.
This is a mashup of Lessig and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, for fun, and to encourage Lessig to continue his work battling corruption in the best possible way: get in there and mix it up with the politicians. Because it's not too late to change Congress.
