ALEC: Corporate Interests Going Right | The Naked Emperor

If you make the minimum wage, you should get the minimum vote.  But if you have bonuses, and capital gains income and investment income then you should clearly have more votes—in line with how much money you have.  That’s why we fund organizations like ALEC – the American Legislative Exchange Counsel.  We are the good people who bring you shoot first laws and most importantly various efforts to reduce the number of citizens who can vote.

A network of ultra-conservative groups is ramping up an offensive on multiple fronts to turn the American public against wind farms and Barack Obama's energy agenda.

A number of rightwing organisations, including Americans for Prosperity, which is funded by the billionaire Koch brothers, are attacking Obama for his support for solar and wind power. The American Legislative Exchange Council (Alec), which also has financial links to the Kochs, has drafted bills to overturn state laws promoting wind energy.

Now a confidential strategy memo seen by the Guardian advises using "subversion" to build a national movement of wind farm protesters.
