More bad news for ALEC, but good news about ALEC

1 post / 0 new

The group Common Cause filed an IRS complaint against ALEC today – accusing the Koch-brother think-tank of posing as a tax-exempt non-profit while actually engaging in widespread lobbying. Common Cause is calling on the IRS to audit ALEC and force the organization to pay penalties and back taxes. ALEC has yet to comment on the complaint.

From losing more than a dozen corporate members to now this – we might be seeing the beginning of the end of the corporatocracy known as the American Legislative Exchange Council.

How much did "fast track" cost the corporate elite?

It cost corporations less than $18,000 bucks per vote to get “fast track” passed in the United States Senate.

According to a recent analysis by The Guardian Newspaper, corporate members of the US Business Coalition for TPP donated more than $1.1 million dollars to Senate campaigns in the first quarter of 2015. The average Democrat received about $9,700 dollars and the average Republican raked in almost $20,000.
