    Could be they are scrubbing for things like this press release

    Washington, DC—The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is pleased to announce the launch of The Atlantic Bridge Project as the latest component of its International Relations Program. The project aims to foster positive relationships between conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic, so that they may further the ideals exemplified by Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.

    Thatcher is an excellent partner with them - sending ALEC a note in 2008 stating

    Lady Margaret Thatcher also sent ALEC members a letter in which she wrote, “you have achieved an enormous amount already but our task never ends. So steel yourselves for the struggles ahead and draw strength once more from that undaunted spirit of freedom which underpins your great nation.”

    Like you I wish our government  - both federal and the states that give ALEC "charity" status would wake up.  We can only hope.

    Thanks Bob! Reporting this is important - cause it shines more light on ALEC's misdeeds both nationally and internationally.

      I've been calling her Lady Ga-Ga for years (and before the singer) and she has not been allowed out without minders for a good three.

      Fight poverty, oppression, hunger, ignorance, disease and aggression wherever they occur.

      research and input.  We know much more about their secretive membership now due to your plodding research.

      More light to come - shortly...maybe the spotlight that really brings more of their really repugnant activities into the light of day.
