ALEC - "Covering their Bum"


with right wing rhetoric.

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)  is still making press statements “trying to cover their bums” – (literally speaking - British use, US meaning) from the substantial amount of extremely well researched, thoroughly cited and documented materials that are being published about ALEC.

The truth hurts and they are feeling the pain.
 
Statement by Alan P. Dye on Latest Harassment Tactic Against ALEC by Liberal Front Groups
WASHINGTON – Alan P. Dye, legal counsel to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), issued the following statement in response to the frivolous IRS complaint by Common Cause against ALEC:

“The attacks on the American Legislative Exchange Council are based on patently false claims being made by liberal front groups that differ with ALEC on philosophical terms.

“The current complaint mostly ignores applicable law and distorts what it does not ignore. After three decades of counseling clients on nonprofit and federal disclosure requirements, it’s clear to me that this is a tired campaign to abuse the legal system, distort the facts and tarnish the reputation of ideological foes.

“Without question, Common Cause is a partisan front group masquerading as an ethics watchdog.”

Lets see:
Against ALEC by Liberal Front Groups
Common Cause is a partisan front group
false claims being made by liberal front groups
Those really sound like right wing name calling to me,

But – Oh, NO – ALEC is bipartisan / nonpartisan

1992 Annual Report
July, 1993
The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is the nation's largest bipartisan, voluntary membership organization of state legislators, with 2,400 members nationwide.

April 2012
The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is the nation’s largest nonpartisan individual membership association of state legislators, with over 2,000 state legislators across the nation and more than 100 alumni members in Congress. ALEC’s mission is to promote free markets, limited government, and federalism throughout the states.

If ALEC was TRULY bipartisan – do you think these partisan, liberal front groups would be making “false claims”?  Good question – but rhetorical at best.
 
Let’s see –
“patently false claims being made by liberal front groups that differ with ALEC on philosophical term”

“patently false claims” – Really???  I bet that the documentation that the partisan, liberal front groups have is so substantial that we will keep ALEC buried IN FACTS about ALEC for years.

ALEC philosophical terms = representative government of, by, and for the corporations.
EVERYONE ELSE = representative government of, by, and for the PEOPLE.

I’m surprised he didn’t mention the flag in his statement.

Oh, I forgot, he can’t do that 
– cause we’re not suppose to know about “the flag”
