Earlier today I wrote about NH State Senator Marcia Moody editorial regarding ALEC model legislation.
Today another first happened - which is proof that all the hard work we are doing as bloggers is helping.

"Today, Senator Michael Bennett (D-CO) submitted a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder urging the Department of Justice to conduct an investigation into restrictive voter ID laws that have cropped up in several states across the country. The letter was co-signed by 15 Senators: Majority Leader Harry Reid (NV) and U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin (IL), Chuck Schumer (NY), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Sherrod Brown (OH), Jeanne Shaheen (NH), Jeff Merkley (OR), Mark Begich (AK), Ben Cardin (MD), Mary Landrieu (LA), Patty Murray (WA), Ron Wyden (OR), Tom Harkin (IA), Herb Kohl (WI) and Tom Udall (NM)."
The article says bills are similar to those distributed by ALEC. I've done the research - they are ALEC.
Congratulations folks - keep it up - the more pressure we put on by keeping ALEC in the headlines - the more people that will step forward to make sure that the right thing is done.
The goal is make ALEC IMPLODE!
