Lessig won’t run for Congress, despite key Innermost Parts Endorsement

Over the break, Sahar regaled you with tales of intellectual property rights pioneer and would-be Congressman Larry Lessig. He is truly a great man, but like many great men, is truly no longer running for Congress. From his website:

After lots of thinking and advice, I have decided it does not make sense for the Change Congress movement for me to a run for Congress in CA12. We would have just over 30 days to introduce a district to me and to an idea. That would not be enough time to convince them to turn away from an extremely popular politician with 30 years of public service.

Well damn.
