On Tuesday, July 24, Harvard Law School Professor Lawrence Lessig testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights at a hearing titled “Taking Back Our Democracy: Responding to Citizens United and the Rise of Super PACs.” (View a PDF of Lessig’s testimony here.)

The prepared testimony is also available through The Atlantic, which has published several pieces related to Lessig’s campaign reform scholarship, including “An Open Letter to the Citizens Against Citizens United,” “Buddy Roemer, the Anti-Spoiler,” and “Has a Harvard Professor Mapped Out the Next Step for Occupy Wall Street?

Lessig is the director of Harvard University’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics and the author of Republic, Lost: How Money Corrupts Congress—and a Plan to Stop It (2011), which advocates for a convention to address what he calls the corrupting influence of money and special interests in Congress.
