Since ColorOfChange launched its campaign to stop corporate funding of the American Legislative Exchange Council, companies have been steadily dumping the right-wing policy group.
Scantron, a multimillion dollar for-profit education network is the latest in a string of large companies to leave ALEC behind. On Tuesday, PRWatch reported that the company:
...that makes, among other things, those ubiquitous scan forms for standardized tests (please make sure you fill in the bubble completely and clearly with a #2 pencil, etc.), joined the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) late in 2010, but a company spokesperson told CMD that it is no longer a member. Scantron's departure makes it the 15th corporation to cut ties with ALEC.
