ALEC, the innocent-sounding American Legislative Exchange Council, is behind ultra right-wing laws which have been passed by GOP state legislators all over America -- laws to execute the GOP's war on women, "stand your ground," suppress voters' rights, bust the public-employee unions, and privatize schools, prisons, and other vital government services!
The film explores ALEC’s machine at work, detailing what one Wisconsin politician describes as “a corporate dating service for lonely legislators and corporate special interests.”
