About ALEC
ALEC is a corporate bill mill. It is not just a lobby or a front group; it is much more powerful than that. Through ALEC, corporations hand state legislators their wishlists to benefit their bottom line. Corporations fund almost all of ALEC's operations. They pay for a seat on ALEC task forces where corporate lobbyists and special interest reps vote with elected officials to approve “model” bills.

Background

According to her biography provided by the ALEC website, " ... Jones was the Europe Project Director at the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), in Washington, DC. While there, she raised JINSA's visibility as an opinion leader through extensive contacts with British MPs, German Bundestag members, Polish national leaders, Members of the European Parliament, senior EU officials and NATO officials. Through a variety of JINSA programs including leading JINSA delegations to meet with civilian and military leaders in various European countries and organizing speaking events across the United States, she worked to educate JINSA's board of directors and general membership about the importance of a healthy transatlantic alliance to achieving American national security objectives. Through her program, Karla also emphasized the role that the Israel-European and Israel-NATO partnerships play in international security."[2]

Her LinkedIn page reveals that previously, Jones served as an Associate Fellow & Director of Development at the Harry Jackson Society.[3] The Harry Jackson Society is British militarist foundation, funded by the Henry M. Jackson Foundation.
