Fred Smith: Shutting ALEC Down a Bullying Tactic Unworthy of Democratic Debate

by Mike Wendy on April 25, 2012

Came across this WSJ LTE today (excerpted below) from Fred Smith, President of the market-based Competitive Enterprise Institute, in response to progressive, “access to knowledge” crowd efforts to shut the American Legislative Exchange Councils (ALEC) for espousing market-based ideas.

What a sham.  What a shame.
