      on ALEC Exposed who are, or have been, members.  ALEC public sector membership is open to state legislators, although it is not uncommon for US representatives and Senators who were members in their state house days to pop in to ALEC conventions.

      All of these people have been a member, and yes that includes quite a few Democrats.

        It's hard to understand but it's not difficult to believe.

        Woe to the US.

          that in terms of actual elected members, ALEC claims several thousand.  The reality is that there are most likely members who we just can't ID, because the last time that ALEC put out a comprehensive membership list was in 1995. After they went to publishing on the web, they locked up membership lists and the model legislation behind a members only firewall.  That secrecy is one of the more concerning elements of ALEC's policy push in the last two years since the Tea Party entered office.
