    Sounds like they want to be defiant about it.

      for "defiance":

      Late on Thursday, Kraft Foods Inc said in an emailed statement: "We belong to many external groups, including ALEC, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that promotes growth and fiscal responsibility.

      "ALEC covers numerous issues but our involvement has been strictly limited to discussions about economic growth and development, transportation and tax policy. We did not participate in meetings or conversations related to other issues.

      "Our membership in ALEC expires this spring and for a number of reasons, including limited resources, we have made the decision not to renew."

      (emphasis mine)
