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.

Are We Watching The End Of A Free Press?

Just a few months after Donald Trump told us all how much he loved Wikileaks, his Justice Department wants to arrest its founder - Julian Assange.

No matter what you think about Wikileaks or Assange - this is a serious threat to the freedom of the press.
