Kaplan Becomes 14th Company To Drop ALEC

In what is becoming a regular event, yet another company has dropped the American Legislative Exchange Council, the corporate front group that helped spread Stand Your Ground gun laws and voter suppression efforts. According to the Center for Media and Democracy, Kaplan, Inc., a for-profit education group owned by the Washington Post Company, has publicly announced that it will not renew its membership. ALEC has come under heavy scrutiny from progressive groups, such as Color of Change, that have been pressuring corporations like State Farm and AT&T to sever ties with the conservative group.
