|Charles and David Koch appear to be pushing their right-wing ideology to the bitter end. And it's time for Americans to stop helping them. The Koch brothers are major backers of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a corporate front group that drafts 'model legislation' for state legislators. The Kochs have given ALEC at least $1 million -- not counting a $500,000 loan -- and their company, Koch Industries, has been a select member of the group's board for nearly two decades. ALEC has recently come under fire for advancing bills modeled on Florida's now-infamous 'Stand Your Ground' law, and it has long been criticized for writing legislation that would undermine public schools, immunize corporations that harm people's health, and impose onerous voter ID restrictions on the young, the old, the poor, and minorities...
