VIDEO: ALEC 'billionaires' thank MN lawmakers

UPDATE: We learn the lawmakers in this video don't belong to ALEC. But still, we like the idea of exposing ALEC as the corporate shadow government.

We love this! Activists in Minnesota dressed up as billionaires and staged a rally in the Statehouse to thank ALEC. Then they went around to lawmakers' offices, handed them a fake million dollar bill and thanked them for standing up for billionaires.

One activist said,
I think it's terrific when Walmart, Pfizer and Exxon write legislation for Minnesota. I think those corporations know what they're doing and I think it's important we get legislation written by them.
Sarcasm, sarcasm, the devil's weapon.
