CHICAGO - Despite multiple requests, Illinois' U.S. Senator Dick Durbin's office refuses to reveal where they obtained American Legislative Exchange Council's private list of donors. The Illinois senator boasts that he wrote over 300 letters to ALEC supporters, demanded to know if they were financially attached to the non-profit private group, and asked if the supporters agreed with ALEC's position on "Stand Your Ground" laws.
Now, not only is Illinois Review interested in exactly where and how Durbin's office got that list, so is at least one person on the Left:
So, I'd like see publication of the list of ALEC sponsors to whom Sen. Dick Durbin sent his letter concerning "stand your ground" laws so that I can express my opinion to them directly — by refusing to buy any of their products or services.

Perhaps Senator Durbin's office will respond to Mr. Porter?
