ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) Politicians (Info you need to know)

September 26, 2011 at 9:46am

ALEC is not a lobby; it is not a front group. It is much more powerful than that. Through ALEC, behind closed doors, corporations hand state legislators the changes to the law they desire that directly benefit their bottom line. 

This is a partial list of politicians that are known to be involved in, or previously involved in, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). It is a partial list. It also includes politicians who have been featured speakers or who have accepted awards at ALEC meetings. (If you have additional names, please add them with a citation. The names in this original list were verified as of posting.)
