Tim Draper is known for having crazy ideas — and for funding them.

Draper’s proposal to cut up the Golden State qualified on Tuesday to appear on the ballot in November’s general election. It received more than 402,468 valid signatures, more than the amount required by state law, thanks to an ambitious campaign, called Cal 3, and financial backing from the early investor in Tesla, Skype, and Hotmail.
