    "half-truths" put out by them and their members.  It just goes to show how they are adept at twisting facts to present themselves in the best possible light.  This answer put out by Wendleboe is more of the same - she stopped at presenting that legislators had to pay their own way to ALEC events...leaving out the part about their being later reimbursed from  the "scholarships" paid for with corporate dollars.  Just more of the same.

    I'm hoping the NO event and possibly the involvement of other groups like the BNF will drive turnout and cause many corporate and legislators to take a hard look at continuing their membership.

      thing they understand.  So boycotting Coca-Cola, various Koch interests, publicizing the link between corporate agendas and corporate legislative agendas, publicizing the members of the Task Forces, and showing how the Model Bills benefit the Task Force members, to the detriment of the citizens and taxpayers of the 50 states where this legislation is introduced and passed has to be a prime goal of those of us who seek to cripple the effectiveness, then destroy ALEC and its right wing first cousins.

      Nice diary.  Keep the pressure on these folks, keep debunking the half-truths.

      Republicans are like alligators. All mouth and no ears.
