Occupy Bellingham meets tonight to "Expose the Secret World of ALEC"

Some of you have read my post  "The Corporate Imperium"  which describes contributions from ALEC members to WA 42nd LD legislators Jason Overstreet and Vincent Buys for the 2012 elections cycle.  Occupy Bellingham will meet tonight at  WECU Educational Center,  511 E. Holly at 6:30 PM  to "Expose the Secret World of ALEC" . Sourcewatch has extensive documentation on ALEC, including a list of ALEC politicians in WA.  There, Sourcewatch names 42 LD Senator Doug Ericksen.  ALEC's site also lists Cathy McMorris-Rodgers (WA 5th Congressional District)  and Doc Hastings (WA 4th Congressional District) as "Alumni members".
