41. Former WI Governor Tommy Thompson, quoted in that report, on "disguising" ALEC bills:

From pp. 4-5:

Today, Washington, D.C.-based ALEC serves as the ultimate smoke-filled backroom, where corporations gain access to legislators and get the laws they write enacted throughout the country. Former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson, a major force in ALECs rebirth as a corporate front, outlined the process, saying, I always found new ideas and then Id take them back to Wisconsin, disguise them a little bit, and declare that its mine.
