State Representative Gene Whisnant of Sunriver is being targeted by "Occupy" members for his association with the American Legislative Exchange Council; a well-known free-market non-profit group. Whisnant calls the criticism of ALEC a smear campaign from the left. He says in a very public process the non-profit group suggests what they call "model" legislation to promote economic development and other "free-market" principals: "One of their charges is that corporations are sneaking this legislation through, but all of their task forces are made up of public and private members. Some I've voted for and some I've voted against." He says the non-profit group is a conservative organization that has members from both parties.
