Who is ALEC?
It's not video like CBS gave to ALEC for their advertisement on the Saturday Nightly news.Outsourcing has become a major theme in the Presidential campaign. For most Americans the idea of having their job outsourced is their worst nightmare.Not so for Republican Governors and legislatures across the country. They have outsourced the burdensome job of writing legislation to a group called the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).In school this would be called plagiarism. In right wing politics, this is a ticket to the next office. ALEC serves as the nexus between corporations and aspiring Republicans always eager to find access to additional campaign cash. It serves as a fertile cross breeding opportunity for lobbyists and legislators.
But - it IS the main stream media - and that's important !!!!
