Because I Can: Minnesota - Land of 10,000 ALEC Members

Because I Can: Minnesota - Land of 10,000 ALEC Members

Minnesota
Land of 10,000 ALEC members!

Anyway it feels like that most every day! Although Mary Kiffmeyer says there are only 30 - but that's probably a lie - based on what we are seeing in our legilsature.

Each person on the list has been compiled and cited using the web and you can also find the proof by researching through ALEC documents, reports and magazines and the Minnesota campaign finance webpage.

Many more Minnesota legislators list can be found at ALEC Exposed– because they access to leaked documents that I don’t have. Since I don’t have these documents on file – I won’t list those people in my blog.


AND if your legislator is not on either list – contact them and ask them, “Are you a member of ALEC? There’s quite a few people on this ALEC list – I’d ask if I were you.


So what – what if people had a list – what does that accomplish?
What would happen if people had a list - what will it accomplish?
Does it really hurt ALEC if a list were available or would ALEC just go on – business as usual?
How would this information be used in a constructive way?

What is next – we HAVE TO REMOVE all ALEC members from state and federal government. It is our role to make sure that they don’t get re-elected. Now is the time for “boots to the ground” to use the information we have compiled on ALEC members and ALEC “model legislation” to prove to others that ALEC members MUST be removed from public service at any and all levels.

ALEC just completed their four day conference where ALEC Corporations told your legislators what legislation they wanted to have passed and what legislation they did not want to have passed.

ALEC members are not serving the public – they are serving the ALEC corporations. It does not matter how ALEC or their members spin this story over the next couple months it is important for you – to remember and to talk about the following fact:

When was the last time YOU got to sit with your legislator for two or three days and tell your legislator what YOUR needs are and help your legislator write legislation that benefited YOU?

Your ALEC legislator does this multiple times a year with corporations – so when push come to shove – it is evident who your legislator is representing – the ALEC corporations.

Past members are important – because they may come up for a state or federal appointment.

Campaign reports – report campaigns – so someone may be on the list that did not win - but you can bet your boots they will try again.

ALEC members and those affiliated with ALEC in any manner
MUST NOT BE RE-ELECTED.

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