Remember, this one of the Private Prison Companies that is being pushed by the American Legislative Exchange Council -- or ALEC.

ALEC is one of those "charitable" conservative 501 outfits that was being investigated by the IRS. Their "charity work" is exclusively aimed at persuading state legislators throughout the country to push and pass such right wing agendas as private prisons, anti-union legislation, protections for corrupt business practices and a host of other garbage that will harm those of us who are part of their 47% while boosting protections and incomes of those in the anointed one percent.

But remember, they are a "charity" to which most of our state's Republican lawmakers belong. ALEC's "charitable" work provides all sorts of lavish perks for lawmakers. Such things as vacations at posh resorts and some gourmet dining are but a few of the rewards lawmakers are handed for membership and fealty to ALEC.

But allowing the IRS to examine organizations such as these is off limits. Investigate "liberal" organizations -- but leave our guys alone. We might lose our benefits.
