Koch And Exxon Pay To Write State Legislation Repealing Climate Change Laws | ThinkProgress

Democracy in the US is a fiction. The Emperors are now parading their naked selves in full knowledge that they don’t even have modesty leaves over their private parts:

According to Bloomberg News, Exxon Mobil donated $39,000 to ALEC last year and the Koch Charitable Foundation donated $75,858 in 2009, the final year in which tax documents were available. Both companies, along with BP, the American Petroleum Institute and the American Coalition for Clean Coal Energy helped draft legislation that has been introduced in Oregon, New Hampshire, Washington State and New Mexico designed to take those states out of regional cap and trade programs…

This should tell you how cheap laws are to buy. What I’d like to see is the amount each spends to lobby. How much each of the 13 legislators have received in “donations” from the various members of the ALEC. I’m sure the corruption runs into the millions, but who knows?
