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.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...
