Common Cause calls on Roy Cooper to investigate ALEC

The government watchdog Common Cause North Carolina is calling on Attorney General Roy Cooper to investigate the right-wing American Legislative Exchange Council and its claim of nonprofit status. According to a letter the group is asking folks to sign and forward to Cooper:

“Common Cause has discovered compelling evidence that ALEC is a corporate lobby masquerading as a charity. It devotes its $7 million annual budget to lobbying for laws that will boost the profits of its member corporations but it pays no taxes and solicits corporate contributions with a promise that donors can deduct gifts on their annual tax returns.

That’s not right. As attorney general, the person we elect to enforce state laws, you shouldn’t stand for it.”

    He needs to investigat NC Policy Watch, Progressives Pulse, Progress NC as well as other groups. These groups only advocate for Democrats and they are the arm of the Democrat Party.

    Please add Democracy NC to your list. They fraudulently call themselves “non partisan”.
