Candidate for Dem Party chair explains resignation from ALEC

As we and others reported on Friday, a candidate for state Democratic Party Chair, Donald Vaughan, was revealed in recent days to have been a member of the corporate-funded, arch-conservative group ALEC. Late on Friday, Vaughan sent us a letter in which he explained that he is resigning from the group. Click here to read the letter.

Good for Vaughan. It remains to be seen, however, whether the state’s Democrats will find the explanation compelling or too little too late.
