With even WalMart bailing out of ALEC, what are the odds that the corporations will simply leave ALEC as an empty shell and set up a new organization to continue what they have been doing?

They'll probably make another one and call it "We love puppies, Inc." or something completely unrelated to what they actually do. Or they will do what they have been doing with everything else and name it something patriotic like, "The Patriots Association for Fighting for Freedom and the American Way"

I think I heard of ALEC divesting its self of political activity, having set up a spun off sub division to handle THAT stuff.
Hey, all you moneyed lefty liberal progressives, and I know there's a few of you out there. We need PALEC. The Progressive American Legislative Exchange Counsel.
