Our Resident Smart Aleck Talks about ALEC (VIDEO)

Sarah Kennedy has a feast with all the products made by corporations that dropped their sponsorships of ALEC last week.

Just in case you missed the national furor about the American Legislative Exchange Council over the last week, here are a few links to bring you up to speed:

  1. Great video Sarah. I just got through calling the representatives in my district to ask them to resign from ALEC. To my surprise, 2 of them were Democrats.

    The laws that ALEC continues to write and push through state houses are dangerous and everyone should educate themselves about them. Everyone has to keep the pressure on all of the companies to withdraw from ALEC.
