The co-founder of the Occupy Wall Street movement has called for the US government to be run by the country’s technology industry.
Justine Tunney, now a software engineer at Google, has posted a petition on the official White House website proposing that Barack Obama resigns and appoints Eric Schmidt as the “CEO of America”.
Mr Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google, would lead a government “more prepared for change” staffed by the US technology industry, according to Ms Tunney.
“It’s because I’m a Googler, I’m familiar with Eric Schmidt being very good at running a successful organisation. He was responsible for building Google, which is a benevolent corporation that’s making the world a better place,” she told the Telegraph.
