At least four current or recent members of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a pay-to-play group of state lawmakers and corporate lobbyists that writes business-friendly model legislation, traveled to Washington, D.C. to participate in the rally that ended with a march to the Capitol and a deadly insurrection.

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee linked at least 16 Republican state lawmakers to the event. Among these politicians were ALEC's Missouri state chair, the 2019 Alaska chair, an Arizona state representative, and another man who just wrapped up his stint in the Arizona House of Representatives.

Justin Hill (Missouri)

Justin Hill, one of ALEC's Missouri state chairs and the 2018 ALEC legislator of the year, skipped his own inauguration to attend the events in Washington, which relied upon months of totally unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud whipped up by President Donald Trump, his legal team, numerous Republican officials and party groups, and many right-wing think tanks and advocacy organizations.
