Since Wikipedia disagrees with you, I'll need more proof:

Cowan graduated from Yale Law
School<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yale_Law_School>in 1968. While
working for Senator Eugene McCarthy in the campaign for
> president that year, Cowan was outraged by the control of delegates by
> "bosses" and thus helped to found and run "The Commission on the Democratic
> Selection of Democratic Nominees."[4]<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffrey_Cowan#cite_note-4>}
> Chaired by Governor and later Senator Harold Hughes of Iowa, Cowan started
> the commission to determine how the delegates were chosen and then made a
> report to the 1968 Democratic National Convention<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1968_Democratic_National_Convention>.
> Cowan and his team discovered that nearly half of the delegates needed to
> nominate a presidential candidate were chosen by party bosses.[5]<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffrey_Cowan#cite_note-5>This led to dramatic reform in the selection of delegates.Connell,
> Rich (20 April 1989). "Head of New Ethics Panel Believes in the Cause". *Los
> Angeles Times* (Los Angeles). Cowan later said, "The campaigns of 1968
> were part of a broader movement to change institutions in a substantial
> way, whether it be an incumbent President or a corporate hierarchy for the
> American Medical Association."[6]<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffrey_Cowan#cite_note-6>Cowan went on to practice law in Washington, D.C., where he co-founded the
> Center for Law and Social Policy[7]<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffrey_Cowan#cite_note-7>and wrote a weekly column for The
> Village Voice <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Village_Voice>.[8]<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffrey_Cowan#cite_note-8>
