Ellington is also the National Chairman of the Board of Directors for the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), as of July 2011. He served as the Workshop Moderator of the "Saving Dollars and Protecting Communities: State Successes in Corrections Policy" session at the 2011 ALEC Annual Meeting.
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.
