ALEC and the Right-Wing Assault on Arizona. Democratic Perspective co-hosts Mike Cosentino and Steve Williamson discuss the impact of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) on Arizona politics with Harriet Young, Northern Arizona University professor and past First Vice Chairwoman of the Arizona Democratic Party, Angela LeFevre, 2012 Democratic Party candidate for the Arizona State Legislature, and Karen McClelland, Vice President of the Democrats of the Red Rocks, and dedicated advocate for public education. The damage done to public education, immigrants’ rights, women’s health services, and our state correctional system by the Arizona Republican Party’s romance with ALEC has been both severe and long-lasting, but few voters are aware of why or how it was inflicted on us.
