Idaho - Vote No to ALEC

Did a bike tour across Idaho a couple years ago.
Nice state - beautiful -
Nasty politics though.

Primaries are coming up so voters need to be aware of who is who in their state.

How do people get on an ALEC list?
That question comes up all the time.  The most common are:
  They serve on ALEC task forces
  They have paid ALEC dues through their campaign finances
  They self identified themselves somewhere , anywhere as an ALEC member.
  They have been shown as a signatory on an ALEC letter.
  They have been listed by ALEC as a member, in ALEC documents.
  They have been “outed” by a credible source, on the web.
  They have attended an ALEC meeting.
  They previously were employed by ALEC and now work in government.

Because these were pulled from the web and historical documents some of the people listed are no longer living and some of them are claiming they kicked ALEC to the curb – which I question (I think they say that just to get re-elected).

Current ALEC Member/Close Ties Affiliations
This one is pretty evident – the main purpose for knowing the people who are currently affiliated with the extremist, pro-corporate American Legislative Exchange Council is to get them out of government - any and all government.

We must make sure that all current ALEC government employees are not re-elected or not re-appointed. 

Some of the names on the list are candidates who ran for office and were not elected.  As part of their campaign expenses, they paid for an ALEC membership.  We must make sure that these people are never elected to public office and they want to be elected.

Past ALEC Member/Close Ties Affiliations
This may seem questionable to some – but it is as important as making sure that current members are not re-elected or elected.

It is important to know past members.  Just recently, many past ALEC members crawled out from behind the baseboards (like the Kochroaches they are) to run for office again or for appointments to state and federal commissions and other offices.  Because these people were not on the current lists which are posted elsewhere – they went unnoticed as ALEC members.
   Past ALEC members are appointed to US government positions.
   Past ALEC members are appointed to state positions.
   Past ALEC members become lobbyists who have influence on your legislation.
   Past ALEC members become judges who have an influence on
      your justice system and decisions.
   Past ALEC members become regents of your universities who have
      an influence on the decisions made in relation to higher education.
   Past ALEC members serve on commissions that affect the running
     of your state.
   Past ALEC members serve on councils or commissions that affect the running
     of your city, your county and your municipalities
   Past and current ALEC members are generational in some states
    (aka family of ALECers)
   Past member run for office again at a later date!!
Past ALECers are still ALECers
If they don't want to be an ALECer
   To Repent
    - a past ALEC member
    Must publicly acknowledge membership
    Must publicly condemn ALEC
    Must actively work to repeal ALEC evil that has been enacted into law

Lists are ALWAYS Partial - ALECers HIDE their involvement with ALEC!
It's important to remember that all lists published anywhere on the web should be considered incomplete partial lists - because ALEC members hide their membership - because they ashamed to admit they belong to ALEC, they know it is wrong!
