Brendan Fischer of the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) tells us about CMD and Common Cause's latest submission to the International Revenue Service (IRS) showing that the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) functions as a corporate lobbying group, in violation of the tax code for 501(c)(3) charities. I talk to Common Cause legal associate Yael Bromberg about the tax man's response.
