It's time to hold ALEC owned legislators accountable.

Now that Coke, Pepsi, Intuit, and Kraft have pulled their sponsorship of ALEC -- largely the result of consumer demand -- it's time to demand that our representatives in government start to act as our representatives, rather representatives for the commercial demands of the East Coast economic elite.

These legislators are not thinking for themselves. They are taking their cues from an inside-the-beltway, corporate-sponsored group that effectively demands that they dismiss the will of their constituents in favor of the demands of those corporations. It's a dangerous calculus for democracy. And it is time to start asking legislators why they are answering to multinational corporations rather than hometown voters.
