Six Californias

Technology investor Tim Draper tells Tech Crunch he will file a ballot initiative to split California into six separate states.

Said Draper: "It is about time California was properly represented with Senators in Washington. Now our number of Senators per person will be about average."

"Getting such a measure on California's wacky ballot will be no easy task. Attempts to get initiatives on the state ballot can cost millions of dollars, and often fail. That said, California has a long secessionist history, and there are a number of folks who want to split the West Coast into smaller territories."

However, Rick Hasen says it can't be done through a ballot initiative.
