    America that we spoke to in NOLA in August?  He is chaffing at the bit for more on ALEC.  This kind of international unraveling scandal should be right up his alley for the People and Power section of their news.

      sent a message off to the main reporter on this at the Guardian. I'm not sure whether they are thinking to look at ALEC donors as possible beneficiaries of Atlantic Bridge actions.

      As for Al Jazeera, I'm under the impression that that crew was tied up producing the documentary.  I don't think it has  come out yet. There's a rumor that the NYT has a big piece on the back burner about something involving ALEC.

        I haven't heard back from Abeshouse in a couple of months.  I'll send him an email and find out what's going on with the story.  He told me it would be out the last of September, so maybe it's close.
