    against.  These legislators are not working for the voters, they are working for ALEC and its corporate enablers.

    Legislative Plagiarism shall not stand.  Demand that all ALEC "model legislation" be disclosed as to what its source is, and what corporate interests are represented on the Task Force that wrote and had corporate veto power over whether the Public Sector Board could even vote on whether to give the bill ALEC "Model Legislation" status.

    That's right, corporate interests have veto power over state legislators from all fifty states.

    Republicans are like alligators. All mouth and no ears.

      to tell ALEC legislators - that the USA is not OK with ALEC.

      ALEC legislators hide their membership in ALEC - because they know what they are doing is wrong.  If ALEC legislators were proud of being a member - they would list it in their bios.

      Every time there is an ALEC event - people have to be there to say NO!  and to see who attends  and to question the people who are attending.

      The bullsh*t that ALEC feeds the press about free markets and limited government only misleads the public.  The people need to be at every event to let ALEC and the public know that ALEC is not the innocuous org it claims to be.

      ALEC, the nonprofit corporation,  is currently claiming that ITS  first amendment right to free speech and assembly is being threatened.  The American people have to stand up against ALEC - every time - and tell ALEC they are not OK with ALEC threatening the people's right to government of, by and for the people.

      On Tuesday - #VoteNo2ALEC
      Remove these Koch-loving ALEC slimeballs out of office.

      Another protest opportunity
      December 4 - 6 Washington DC - ALEC meeting that indoctrinates legislators voted in next Tuesday and the 40th Anniversary Grand Ball/Gala.

        will be speaking at the ALEC event in Texas in December.

        Many questioned Governor Pence's relationship with ALEC - and by his attending and speaking, I think that question has now been answered.

        As ALEC attempts to raise funding to keep them in business, protesters (no matter how many or few) should show up and demonstrate to keep the community informed about this dangerous "charity" - and why they're dangerous.
