LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman and Zynga founder Mark Pincus want to help reinvent the Democratic Party with a new organization called, "WTF," Business Insider reports.

The acronym stands for Win the Future. The group is teaming up with former Sierra Club President Adam Werbach to recruit political outsiders to run as "WTF Democrats," build a platform to connect activists and organizers and find a way to fund progressive initiatives that matter to people.

"We need a modern people's lobby that empowers all of us to choose our leaders and set our agenda," said Pincus. "Imagine voting for a President we're truly excited about. Imagine a government that promotes capitalism and civil rights."

Pincus and Hoffman have committed over $500,000 to build out the project according to Business Insider, and are still raising money to put up billboards in Washington, D.C., that would include the policies and causes they find resonate with people on Twitter.

Alex Lawson, executive director of Social Security Works, criticized the project.

"I am not sure the creators of the lamest and the most annoying social media experiences are the exact people who should be rewiring the philosophical core of the Democratic Party as they say they want to," he told HuffPost.
