Found the reference to this on the ALECExposed Twitter Feed
It’s important enough to share- cause I’m pretty sure Motley Fool could care less about our activism – as their focus is investing, not the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
The Motley Fool weighed in on the dangers of ALEC companies stocks two weeks ago and most people probably missed it –
Whatever feelings one might have regarding “Stand Your Ground” and other potentially controversial items on ALEC’s legislative agenda, ownership of stock in any of ALEC’s member organizations represents a tacit (if unintentional) endorsement of those policies. Therefore, the question for investors becomes one of identifying the risks associated with companies that don’t share Coca-Cola’s discretion. Understanding that companies act in the interest of their bottom line (and, hence, their value to investors), one wonders what function ALEC membership serves if a company like Coca-Cola no longer finds them a compatible partner.
It doesn’t get any clearer than that.

which converts to
corporate membership in ALEC represents a tacit (if unintentional) endorsement of those policies
Are you "endorsing ALEC policies" - unintentionally?
Where are you shopping?
What items are you buying?
What stocks do you own?
The market is at it's highest in almost four years -
Start dumping stock in companies that won't DUMP ALEC
and let them know you did it and why.
That's the free-market at work and that is what ALEC advocates.
Time to be 'intentional" -
Please do not support ALEC companies.
