change-congress.org results: Obama tells DNC, no lobbyist money

Shares

Hey, the change-congress.org movement is getting traction.

Change Congress is a movement to build support for basic reform in how our government functions. Using our tools, both candidates and citizens can pledge their support for basic changes to reduce the distorting influence of money in Washington. Our community will link candidates committed to a reform with volunteers and contributors who support it.

Larry Lessig and Joe Trippi get much credit here.

A big result DNC bans lobbyist money:

With Barack Obama as their future nominee, the Democratic National Committee is adopting his policy of no longer accepting donations from federal lobbyists or political action committees.

The change will make the party and the candidate have a consistent position. Obama often says banning the donations is one way to help keep him free of the influence of Washington insiders.
