'Turning state legislatures into brothels'

Daily Kos posts a deep look (link corrected) — another in a series — on the growing influence of the Koch/corporatist American Legislative Exchange Council, which plants its agenda in state legislators through compliant foot soldiers favored with campaign support from the same sources and prepped on ALEC junkets.

Nothing Arkansas-specific here, but it's a valuable outline of a vast project of interlocking corporate and media and political interests. It's important here because many, if not most, of the new Republican majority are enlisted in the ALEC cause and many of them had support from Koch-backed electioneering groups to win their seats. So that they could, of course, apply the ALEC agenda.
