We’ve just received word from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee — which has been campaigning to get Democratic Party lawmakers to quit the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) — that an additional eleven Democrats have now left the corporate front group . Here are the eleven who have announced they will be leaving:

- 8 Pennsylvannia legislators: Sen. Lisa Boscola, Sen. Leanna Washington, Sen. Anthony Williams, Rep. Nick Kotik, Rep. Ted Harhai, Rep. William Keller, Rep. Joseph Markosek, Rep. Joseph Petrarca

- 2 Illinois legislators: Rep. Mary Flowers, Rep. Brendan Phelps

- 1 Iowa legislator: Rep. Brian Quirk

These lawmakers join at least 45 others, Republicans and Democrats, who have left in the wake of outrage over ALEC’s role in pushing voter suppression and “Stand Your Ground” laws.

    Williams is the truly despicable one on that list. He must have one, big empty hole in that soul of his.

    The rats are just moving to another ship. Have no fear, they’ll be back.

    “The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.”
    Thomas Jefferson–
    There will be a different ALEC, and Lawmakers will take their money. Until money is removed from the equation, corruption will find a way.
    Corporations are not people, my friend. Money is not speech. And saying it doesn’t make it so.
    If money is speech, and speech is free, why isn’t money free? If money can be quantified, can speech?
