ALEC - Hidden Memberships EXPOSED!
This diary is a sneak preview of an article to be published at Voters Legislative Transparency Project - www.vltp.net - later this week...
Over the past year, much information about the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) has come to light. The public learned of ALEC; model legislation, secret membership lists and denial of media access to ALEC events and meetings. A complete website dedicated to exposing “everything ALEC” has been created helping to inform about ALEC.
Daily Kos and VLTP Researchers have been continuously digging through thousands of pages of FOIA’s, articles and documents. These efforts have revealed some important facts involving ALEC.
In addition to the standard Legislative and Corporate memberships, ALEC offers several additional “types” of membership; Legacy, Full and Subscription memberships. Some individuals previously thought of as ALEC “alumni” are in fact important but undisclosed card carrying members –foreign lawmakers may also hold such memberships.
