ALEC: Playing A Long Game

THE NEW YORK TIMES OP-ED, Monday, March 26, 2012

Paul Krugman Lobbyists, Guns and Money

“Florida’s now-infamous Stand Your Ground law which lets you shoot someone you consider threatening without facing arrest, let alone prosecution, sound crazy– and it is.”  According to Krugman, similar laws have been passed in the nation, not by “yahoos’, but by corporations, who have been given templates by ALEC or American Legislative Exchange Council.  

“And ALEC, even more than other movement-conservative organizations is clearly playing a long game.”

ALEC is going to be promoting conservative issues for a long time or is staying in the game .
