CMD launched its award-winning ALEC Exposed investigation after a whistleblower gave Lisa all of the model bills secretly voted on by lobbyists and lawmakers. CMD also publishes PRWatch.org, SourceWatch.org, and ExposedbyCMD.org.


Good work. I also noticed that the Goldwater Institute's Director of Litigation Clint Bolick is also connected to immigration issues as the coauthor of Jeb Bush's new book.

What an eye-opening and shocking report. What irony, the "winner" of the stolen 2000 election appoints two Supreme Court justices who are the deciding votes in the 5-4 Citizens United case. And the same justices provide the winning votes in the Arizona Clean Government case, which results in requiring the taxpayers of Arizona to pay legal fees to the Goldwater Institute which undermines the interests of the citizens of the state, and which supports efforts which will probably attempt to fund more "winners" in the future.
