Don't Rest On Your Laurels

Just because your efforts have made some contributors back away from ALEC, and they themselves have decided it wasn't worth it to continue on some of their hideous agendas, do not stop the pressure. These people....we know them as The Kochs.....will only turn their efforts nefariously in other directions.  Theirs is a never-ending saga.

To borrow a paragraph from Daily Kos: That makes an even dozen companies (McDonald's, Wendy's, Mars Inc., Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Kraft Foods, Intuit, Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, Reed Elsevier [owner of LexisNexis], American Traffic Solutions and Arizona Public Service) who have severed ties with ALEC, inaddition to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

There's no question that ALEC has been significantly damaged by the exposure of their extreme right-wing agenda. They'll likely not go away, but they also won't be able to operate in secrecy any more.
