Lobbyist Named Chair of ALEC Private Sector Board (How Fitting!)

As an example of how secretive people are about their membership or involvement in the American Legislative Exchange Council – if you Google “Steve Seale” “American Legislative Exchange Council” you get twelve hits – eight unique hits.
And if you Google “C. Stevens Seale” “American Legislative Exchange Council”
You get four hits.

WELL…today…
Steve Seale named as national Chairman of Private Enterprise Advisory Council for ALEC
Steve Seale, former Mississippi State Senator and former Chief Counsel to US Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, has been named 2013-2014 National Chairman of the Private Enterprise Advisory Council of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). In his role as Private Enterprise Advisory Council Chairman, Seale will coordinate interaction between ALEC private sector member companies and their representatives with the more than 2000 ALEC state legislative members from around the country.
Notice the difference?
Private Enterprise Advisory Council for ALEC.  This is the new name for ALEC’s
     “Private Enterprise” Board of Directors
This is part of the ALEC “re-organization” – the  Edelman PR whitewashing of ALEC – currently taking place at the secretive ALEC offices.
So now it is the Private Enterprise Advisory Council for ALEC, and the
National Chairman is a lobbyist.
The new Chairman of the Private Enterprise Advisory Council  – has NEVER worked in the private sector – EXCEPT – as a lobbyist.
How fitting that a lobbyist will ” coordinate interaction between ALEC private sector” and ALEC state legislators.  After all, what is ALEC if not a highly evolved organization dedicated to lobbying?
