For the second time in three years, North Carolina has the dishonor of having one of its own legislators recognized as the ALEC legislator of the year.
The American Legislative Exchange Council has named state Rep. Jason Saine its Lawmaker of the Year for 2014.
It's the second time in four years a North Carolina lawmaker has won the group's highest honor. Outgoing House Speaker Thom Tillis was ALEC's Lawmaker of the Year in 2011.
Many people try to hide their ALEC ties, as the public becomes more aware of ALEC's destruction of our American democracy. Not Jason, though, he's proud to have a leadership role in destroying the state of North Carolina!
"'I am honored to receive this award,' Saine said in the release. 'I am proud to be a member of ALEC, and have done my best to reduce government overregulation and promote free markets in North Carolina.'"
