    Lessig's money, then. They're purposefully choosing candidates that wouldn't be likely to win otherwise. He doesn't have money spigots pointed in his direction. If he's been offered this largesse and doesn't want to have to spend two of every three minutes of his term raising cash, he'll go with Lessig. And if he hops off the train, he'll get ditched.

    That's how lobbying and fundraising work. You give money to someone on your side until they stop being on your side.

      Rubens is a candidate for the Senate, not the House.

      Lessig will be off crusading for free wifi on Mars Base Alpha by then.
