Keep private money out of election administration

State lawmakers may not be experts on everything, but there’s one subject on which their expertise is beyond question. State elected officials know a lot about state elections. They also know a lot about fundraising, and how much it costs to run an effective get-out-the-vote effort. They know about campaign finance laws, and contribution limits, and how hard it is to raise money. They know where their voters live, and where the other team’s voters live. So it’s interesting that a number of state...

Here’s what I saw over 13 years working for Zuck: One of Mark’s first big fights was with his own board + exec team. They tried to convince him to sell the company to Yahoo for $1B in ’06. At the time FB had 5M users (all college) and was 2 yrs old. At the age of 22, Mark stood to gain $300M personally. How could he sa...
