Shining sunlight on a secretive lobby group in North Carolina

Nancy MacLean, PhD, provides historical background on the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and warns of the dangers of its influence in North Carolina:

What ALEC and the companies that provide it with millions in operating funds seek is, in effect, a slow-motion corporate takeover of our democracy, first in the states where its party controls both the legislature and the governorship, as in North Carolina. But once its bills to suppress voter turnout take effect, the ultimate prize is to transform our entire country.”
