REVEALED: Full List Of ALEC’s Corporate Members

PrintFriendly and PDF

Make a note of the devious malefactors on this list for they are your enemies. In fact you don’t have to: they’re basically the Fortune 500, la creme de la creme of US capitalism.

By Alex Seitz-Wald

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) has been under fire lately after the 15 major corporations and organizations pulled their support for the conservative organization, which helps quietly implement corporate-backed legislation in statehouses across the country.

Now, the watchdog advocacy group group Common Cause has released a complete list of corporations on ALEC’s task forces.

Not surprisingly, four of the five major oil companies are members, as are many other energy companies. Some houshold names on the list include Johnson & Johson, State Farm insurance, and AT&T. There are lots of major online businesses, including AOL (the parent company of the Huffington Post), eBay, Amazon.com, Yahoo, and Time Warner.

See the full list below.
