I was at a meeting yesterday of people very engaged in the political process, and was horrified to realize many of them do not know what ALEC is. It has been called “Corporate America’s Trojan Horse.” The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) claims that legislators have introduced more than 3100 pieces of legislation based on their models. You haven’t heard of them because they are a front for hundreds of corporations. They disguise themselves in hundreds of ways to fool well meaning conservative voters into voting against their own interest. They use immigration, same sex marriage, and anything else they thing would trigger voter turn out, to turn out one trojan horse after another.
