I was recently alerted to the ALEC Exposed Wiki
which is an amazing resource for all things about the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)
including materials that were restricted to non members for years. We have recently reported
on ALEC's connections in Texas.
Folks have been suspecting for a long time now that ALEC's influence has a correlation to expanding prison privatization. Part of the organization's mission is to:
advance the Jeffersonian principles of free markets, limited government, federalism, and individual liberty, through a nonpartisan public-private partnership of America's state legislators, members of the private sector, the federal government, and general public.
