ALEC Related PAC's-Who Gets Their $$- Ross (AR)

 (This is entry #10 of a series of unknown number – I’ll keep going until I’m done)

From the ALEC webpage here is the current Private Sector Board

Due to time constraints - I put parameters on this project.  (I can get a little OCD sometimes, so I had to stop at six companies, rather than pulling all 24 – not enough?  Too bad!  Just picking those 6 ALEC Private Sector Board Member’s companies resulted in a spreadsheet with 2,764 lines of donations.)

“Political Action Committee (PAC) — A popular term for a political committee organized for the purpose of raising and spending money to elect and defeat candidates. Most PACs represent business, labor or ideological interests. PACs can give $5,000 to a candidate committee per election (primary, general or special).”  (Source )

I went to  http://www.congress.org/   and pulled the PAC’s for each of the companies highlighted in red – shown above.  I pulled donations to candidates of more than $4,999, for the three election cycles of 2005 – 2010.

Below is a winner in PAC money received from ALEC Private Sector Board Member Companies.

(That means they were “educated and indoctrinated” by ALEC – but ALEC can no longer claim them as members because it would violate their 501c3 status.)



Please request the elimination of any and all state and federal funding for state or federal legislators to belong to ALEC, to attend ALEC events and to buy products or publications sold by ALEC.
