ALEC Member Corporations.

If corporations choose to join organizations like ALEC, they should be proud enough to let the country and their shareholders know. As mentioned many times before here on blogforiowa, ALEC tries to operate out of the light. As you also know, this is not good for democracy. So in the interest of helping ALEC come to the light we will list some of the corporations with ALEC ties. The whole list can be found here:

Remember that Coke, Pepsi, Kraft Foods, McDonald’s, Intuit and the Gate’s Foundation have recently left ALEC.

Let’s start with those on the board of directors:
