Guess Who Dumped ALEC?

Well, there are still things to wonder at - it was WalMart.  From the Center for Media and Democracy:

Wal-Mart, a member of ALEC's corporate "Private Enterprise" board and of the Public Safety and Elections Task Force that adopted Florida's "Stand Your Ground" as a "model" bill, announced yesterday that it is "suspending" its ALEC membership.

Color of Change, along with CMD, Common Cause, People for the American Way, and others are focusing now on asking State Farm, AT&T, and Johnson & Johnson to cut ties with ALEC.

If you have State Farm insurance, encourage them to get out.   I'm with AT&T so I'm going to let them know as well.
