Because I Can: Ben Nelson (NE) is NOT a Democrat - He's ALEC

Because I Can: Ben Nelson (NE) is NOT a Democrat - He's ALEC

Everyone this morning is talking about how Ben Nelson didn't vote for the jobs bill.

Wake up people - the corporations own him! Get over your pissing and moaning - he's a Democrat in name only - philosophically he belongs to the American Legislative Exchange Council party.

He was previously affiliated with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
He was a winner of the most prestigious award ALEC gives - the Thomas Jefferson Freedom award.

Other winners of this prestigious award include: Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Dick Cheney - just to name a few.

By Larry O’Dell, Associated Press Writer
RICHMOND – About 325 people, including lawmakers from about 40 states, have convened in Richmond for the American Legislative Exchange Council’s national summit on state sovereignty.
Gov. George Allen, a Republican who has appointed a Virginia task force to study ways to transfer more power from the federal government to the states, will be the keynote speaker at a luncheon today.
Other weekend speakers will include Govs. Fife Symington of Arizona, Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Michael Leavitt of Utah.

ALEC members and those affiliated with ALEC in any manner

Without state and federal legislators ALEC will cease to exist and it will implode.
