    We may not be able to end this corruption, especially after Citizen’s United, but surely something can be done about the fake “non-profit” b.s. and the ability of corporate interests to get a tax break for giving money to a gang that buys political influence, i.e., bribes politicians. Or, at least we should be able to use what little pressure is left to consumers and hound the corporations that belong to ALEC about their participation. After the Zimmerman shooting, such pressure did influence some corporations to end contributions to ALEC.
