    contributions of both corporations for several years now and their money buys corruption from sea to shining sea here in the good ol' US of A.  They have made so much money in fact that ALEC, Geo and CCA have gone international in the past decade.

    Did you read what just happened in Canada with the Conservatives getting a no confidence vote?  It is because of their lack of transparency, etc.  Part of the reason is that the conservatives up there have tried to mirror our criminal justice laws and privatization efforts.  Canada realizes that this is bankrupting our country and want no part of that.

    ALEC's server is down, or I would provide you with a link to their efforts in Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand and of late, China!  Their Task Force on International relations (Task Force seats cost $10,000.00 ea. to the corporate members) has been busy spreading the 3 strikes, minimum mandatory and Truth in Sentencing laws in those countries and CCA and Geo both have private prison operations in each.
