Article in The Atlantic from April 11, 2014 about then-Congressional candidate from New Jersey, Dave Cole.

So: Go to Cole’s campaign website and you can see his platform and take on the issues. That’s not the only place that information resides, though: A clone of the text also exists on Github, where anyone can suggest changes to it. People who dislike some aspect of the platform can also submit a change by leaving a comment on Cole’s website.

Cole’s platform has been on Github for about a month. So far, three people have requested to change it through Github.
