  •  amazing stat: at one point ALEC had over 2200 (20+ / 0-)

    state and local lawmakers as their members or almost 25% of all elected officials.  Now since Trayvon  affair has highlighted their role in state and local government, they have lost about 750 members and 80 corporate members.  Also they are feeling the downturn in contributions so it appears there may be justice

    •  We have to remember that a couple of million (4+ / 0-)

      in lost revenue for ALEC is chump change to the Koch brothers and their interlocking financial shell game of think tanks, billionaire back scratchers and others who subscribe to the Friedman principle that freedom is a commodity to be bought and sold, and that ultimately, the most freedom can be attained with the most money, which to me explains why the SCOTUS equates money with speech, the more money you have the more speech you can do.

      Back to my main point, if ALEC can no longer properly fund its organization, but the Koch's want it to continue its nefarious activities, the Koch's will find a way to get the necessary dollars to ALEC.

      Republicans are like alligators. All mouth and no ears.
