Lawrence Lessig: What an 'Originalist' Would Understand 'Corruption' to Mean
Michael Ramsey

Lawrence Lessig (Harvard University - Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics; Harvard Law School) has posted What an 'Originalist' Would Understand 'Corruption' to Mean: The 2013 Jorde Lecture (California Law Review, Forthcoming) on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

How we understand the "corruption" of Congress goes a long way to showing why, and how that "corruption" can be remedied. In this paper, Professor Lessig describes the originalist roots to his conception of "dependence corruption," and shows why that conception is neither a version of "equality" nor inconsistent with modern First Amendment jurisprudence.
