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.
Shoot-em-up Charlie takes a look at the killing of Trayvon Martin and what may be behind the "Stand Your Ground" laws that have spread around the United States. Please be warned, hoodies are featured in this cartoon. Learn all about the NRA and ALEC, that sneaky behind the scenes puppet-master. A Mark Fiore political animation.
