Duncan – US Congress – $3,000 ALEC DUES

In an excellent piece of investigative journalism written by Bob Sloan that was released by the Voter Legislative Transparency Project on ALEC memberships/dues you will find this statement:

Kasich, Walker and Brewer are all alumni.  How about Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor? Both are known ALEC “alumni” and with the discovery of the Legacy membership program, one or both could be members while serving in the U.S. Congress.  ALEC’s refusal to release any of their membership lists, forces researchers to spend hours digging out these small bits of evidence – which ALEC will neither deny or provide a “no comment” on.

“one or both could be members while serving in the U.S. Congress.”
one,
or both.
or ALL
YEP – I guess you could assume that ALEC alumni could be active members of the American Legislative Exchange Council while serving in the U.S. Congress.
If you go to the FEC and look up
     Details for Candidate ID : H0SC03077
     Operating Expenditures – DUNCAN, JEFF

Guess we have a lot more investigating that needs to be done on ALEC Alumni.
