“A new report reveals the “extraordinary influence” the American Legislative Exchange Council”
You will get 500+ hits – posted across the United States. It has been re-posted multiple times in every state in the United States.
These search results do not include people who’ve tweeted this report or read it online or referenced it in their blog without using that exact phrase.
The report that I am referring to was released by the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) last week and is well worth your read.
“ALEC Exposed in Wisconsin: The Hijacking of a State”
This report will shock and amaze you
and I can guarantee you
– it is also happening in your state
– remember ALEC has over 2,700 members
– and ALEC IS hijacking your state, county and town governments.
My question to the rest of the United States:
When are YOU going to do a report on the Influence on ALEC in your state?
I have faith – that in every state – there are citizen researchers and journalists that can band together to get this done.
Make this a group effort – divvy out the responsibilities and get ’er done.
