12/10 Ed Pilkington: ALEC Withering In the Sunlight

December 10, 2013

The Guardian’s Ed Pilkington explains ALEC’s role in helping corporations dominate the local policy process, how ALEC was able to operate outside of public scrutiny for so long, the document leaks that are exposing ALEC’s far right agenda, ALEC’s connection with the Trayvon Martin killing, how exposure is scaring away ALEC corporate sponsors, why ALEC claims they don’t lobby, how the State Policy Network fits into the right wing state policy agenda and how corporate lobbyists are designing one size fits all bills for state governments across the country.

On The Better Half: The Daily Caller’s Patrick Howley explains his theory that liberal will eliminate men being able to look at women and Sam has a epic debate with him and your IMs.
