The American Legislative Exchange Council entered into a new partnership last month with a radical-right pro-Trump group, Turning Point USA, that played a major role in promoting Trump's lies about voter fraud and organizing the Jan. 6 rally aimed at overturning the presidential election, documents obtained by the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) reveal.

While the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) released a statement on the day of the riot saying that it "condemns the lawless, extreme behavior of protestors attempting to block Congressional certification of electoral college votes," it failed to disclose that its partner Turning Point USA (TPUSA) helped organize the #StoptheSteal protest that turned into a deadly insurrection at the Capitol.

Prior to the riot, TPUSA's affiliate, Turning Point Action was listed as a coalition partner on the "March to Save America" website, which has since been taken down, along with the Republican Attorneys General Association, Stop the Steal, Tea Party Patriots, and six other groups.
