Coke drops ALEC

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

This is kind of huge in our world. ALEC is a big nasty organization that, along with the Chamber of Commerce, pushes for all sorts of conservative legislation. Well, Coca-Cola just dumped them. Kudos to the Color of Change for getting this done.

"The Coca-Cola Company has elected to discontinue its membership with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Our involvement with ALEC was focused on efforts to oppose discriminatory food and beverage taxes, not on issues that have no direct bearing on our business. We have a long-standing policy of only taking positions on issues that impact our Company and industry."
