“An American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) member is defying Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules limiting the sale of rat poisons that pose dangers to children and the ecosystem. ALEC representatives say that kids eating rat poison is an “acceptable risk” that does not justify government intervention in the market.”

“Some 250 police and firefighters signed recall petitions, loaded up on maps and assignments and to listened to guest speakers at a “Recall Walker” gathering at Madison’s South Central Federation of Labor.  Mark Sanders, President of the Ohio Association of Professional Firefighters, was there to pass the torch and Harold Schaitberger, National President of the International Association of Professional Firefighters (IAFF), was there to remind the crowd about the critical role ALEC played in the Wisconsin and Ohio uprisings.”
