“The system is rigged!” says a video at Larry Lessig’s webpage announcing his run for the presidency.
Lessig is using a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money for a “credible” run Democratic presidential primary. If the campaign hits its $ 1 million goal by labor day, he says, he will make running for president his full-time job.
Right now he has $ 854,777 of the gaol, with four days remaining. He has a very good chance of making the goal.
Lessig, who is known for helping push Creative Commons into existence, wants to run as a “referendum president,” promising to serve only as long as it takes to pass the Citizens Equality Act of 2017.

Finally, Lessig and company are already taking a poll to ask voters who the the VP on the ticket should be. The choice list contains some interesting names: Elizabeth Warren, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Robert Reich, Jon Stewart, Sheryl Sandberg, Bernie Sanders, and Joe Biden.
