10 companies have dropped ALEC so far

4 posts / 0 new

The number of corporations and organizations to cut ties with the American Legislative Exchange Council has reached ten. At the end of last week – American Traffic Solutions became the tenth ALEC member to jump ship in the face of a boycott led by several progressive organizations. ALEC is calling the effort against them an “intimidation campaign.”

But considering that ALEC is the leading force behind new Voter ID laws that could disenfranchise millions of Democratic voters – the only “intimidation campaign” out there is the one ALEC is leading against the American electorate.

One thing to keep in mind is that you're not getting rid of any of the players, only the storefront they use as a meeting place. One way or another they will still be all the same consenting players who will merely seek a different venue that is not so transparent.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
