      In a Machiavellian maneuver, state Republicans replaced sitting Regent Steve Hunter, the Board's only labor representative, with former state Rep. Laura Brod (R). Brod is listed as a former ALEC state chair for MN. This appointment was doubly controversial because the actual opening that Brod had applied for was filled by former state Republican Speaker of the House, Steve Sviggum, a likely though unproven member of ALEC. So we have at least one and possibly two ALEC moles on the board of a major state university system.

      Based on new information, I'm going to add

      Speaker of the House Kurt Zellers (R)

      although he qualifies himself by saying that he has "not been very active in ALEC."
