Lessig: Why I’m Supporting Rob Sand

You know I’m an advocate for government integrity and accountability.

And I know that Rob Sand is too. That’s why I’m supporting him in his run for state wide office in Iowa and asking you tojoin me.

In college, Rob built a dataset with over 40,000 data points about elections around the country since 1960, then ran statistical regressions that showed that campaign finance reform could lead to more people running for office and higher voter turnout. He won Best Political Science honors thesis and I blogged about his results.

His incredible work as Iowa Assistant Attorney General since then also promoted integrity by ensuring corrupt insiders pay the price. Even the New York Times Magazine took notice.

Getting people like Rob into office is a priority. He’ll work to restore trust in the system by improving integrity and cutting corruption.
