    ALEC's replacements aren't waiting for ALEC to go down.  If it does, they'll be ready to step in, but there's money to be made in making up laws and "educating" legislators.

    The State Government Leadership Foundation http://www.sglf.org/ is just one example.  Here in Michigan, we have the Mackinac Center for Public Policy http://www.mackinac.org/... which is enough of a blight on the Great Lakes region.  I'm betting most states have their own version festering in the dark.

    Hope they do lose Wal-Mart permanently though.  They both suck, but become toxic to people when combined.

    #ALEC Brand Legislation now with new whitening agents! Dont like the color of your electorate?Just add #VoterID! Now with more suppression! @FAKEALECPR
