With Scott Walker set to address the annual meeting of the far-right, corporate-led American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), PFAW released Spanish-language and English-language digital ads highlighting Walker’s choice to headline the corporate bill factory’s national conference in San Diego. Civil rights icon and PFAW board member Dolores Huerta released the following statement:
Voters need to know that this week, Scott Walker is choosing to headline the annual convention of ALEC, the corporate-run organization that brought us Arizona’s anti-immigrant law SB 1070 and has long championed anti-worker, anti-environment legislation.
“Given Walker’s decades-long alliance with ALEC, it’s no surprise that he’s standing with them now as he begins his presidential campaign. While Walker has turned his back on working families, he gladly stands up for corporate interests that hurt our community through his work with ALEC.”
