Fight ALEC

From the Daily Kos:

An explosive new report from the Guardian reveals that the right-wing American Legislative Exchange Council—more commonly known as “ALEC”—is facing a major funding crisis in the wake of the Trayvon Martin tragedy. But they’re not going down without a fight.

According the Guardian, ALEC is launching major counteroffensive to woo back big corporate supporters they’ve lost.

Join CREDO and Daily Kos to tell Amazon, Coca-Cola, General Electric, Kraft, McDonald’s and other former ALEC funders: Don’t go back to ALEC.

We’ve worked hard to expose ALEC’s right-wing agenda—like their support of Florida’s “stand your ground” gun law—and they’re reeling as result of it: Over 60 corporations and 400 state legislators have dropped their support of ALEC over the past two years, including VISA just last week. That’s why they’ve launched the “Prodigal Son Project” to get their big corporations back on their side.

We can’t let big corporations like Amazon, McDonald’s and others go back to ALEC. We need to let them know that their support of this right-wing group is unacceptable.

Sign the petition: Don’t go back to ALEC.

Keep fighting,
Michael Langenmayr
Campaign Director, Daily Kos
