WASHINGTON, D.C. — Iowa lawmakers may unknowingly belong to ALEC, the escort service for corporations and state lawmakers, according to a report released today in DesMoines by Progress Iowa.
The report also identified more than $520,000 in campaign donations to 13 GOP lawmakers and Gov. Terry Branstad by corporations associated with ALEC.
