That's sure a surprise for me.
The redoubtable Larry Lessig speaks about it much more effectively:
This now is the unavoidable goal: "dismantling the Commission." The most astonishing thing about this process has been the totally non-responsive "Commission on Presidential Debates." I could get top people from both campaigns to respond almost immediately to the requests we made. But the Executive Director of the Commission, Janet Brown, didn't have time for even the courtesy of a response to an email.
Enough of that, and enough of them. Join us now in a call that the Commission formally release the debates to the public.
