Kiffmeyer (MN) - To Attend Peculiar ALEC Cigar Reception

Wonder what that is -
Are they going to the planet of Kolob for smokes?

Great read today – out of a Utah alternative newspaper
Here's a few snips...
ALEC 39th-annual meeting
July 25-28
Grand America Hotel, Salt Lake City

Meanwhile, ALEC delegates will be treated to a special performance by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, a reception at the new Natural History Museum of Utah and a peculiar “cigar reception,” not to mention a speech by the National Journal’s Charlie Cook. Gov. Gary Herbert will also welcome ALEC to Utah.

Cordray thinks the red-carpet treatment is a “subtle way to get people from around the country to see Mormonism in a flattering light—to help Romney.” Religion has been an underlying issue in Romney’s campaign, and Cordray believes it’s important for Utah to “paint a pretty picture.”

Kiffmeyer (MN-ALEC) will be hearing the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
Good for her.-  Bad for US.
Tickets to hear the choir range from $60 - $100 for an upcoming concert.

The interesting thing is if you check the Mormon Tabernacle Choir webpage
 – there is no concert scheduled while they are in Salt Lake City and
  –the ALEC “special” concert is not listed on their webpage either.   
Must be a private concert just for ALEC members.

Kiffmeyer gets to do  all this FREE - on a ALEC Corporate Scholarship.
  Visit Utah
  Hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
  Go to a peculiar cigar recption
  Go to a reception at the natural History Musem
FOR FREE - Corporate lobbyist are paying for her to go there!

A vacation!!!! FREE!!!
Hanging out with your buds in another state for FREE!

When was the last time YOU got a FREE vacation - or even got to attend a conference for FREE - or got to go to a major concert for FREE?????

AND then Kiffmeyer
- pack up her suitcase with all kinds of ALEC nastiness in the form of ALEC "model" legislation
AND bringing it back to Minnesota.
