Harvard University law professor Lawrence Lessig of Cambridge, Mass. quietly entered the Democratic presidential race himself Sunday.

The law professor and internet activist stated Sunday that he is seeking the Democratic nomination for president, but he only wants to pass a single campaign finance reform law, and then resign.

"WE DID IT!!! ($1M in < 4 wks) Thank you all for your support. Now, let's go #fixdemocracyfirst #getmoneyout," Lessig tweeted Sunday. Lessig had set a fundraising goal of $1 million by Labor Day for himself to gauge interest in his bid. That goal was met earlier this weekend. On ABC's "This Week," Lessig excoriated the "corrupt" status quo of the current political system.
