I have committed the Marketplace to sharing as much information as possible to expose the American Legislative Exchange Council otherwise know as ALEC. Who they are, what they do, and what it means to us.
After launching the Marketplace one of my first articles was titled "Obsessed With ALEC". My passion for outing them has not diminished. In fact the more I read and learn, the more determined I am in continuing down this path for as long as it takes. Voter suppression, "Stand Your Ground" laws, the privatization of education, and many other issues all have some tie back to ALEC. In most cases we're not even talking six degrees of separation.
So in the spirit of my "obsession" I offer these two informative cartoons about ALEC.
