Google says good riddance to “lying” conservative legislative group

Google has severed its ties with the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council, with harsh words that ALEC is “lying” with expressions about climate change.

The group has suffered numerous defections, including Microsoft and Amazon.com, beginning with its authorship of so-called “Stand Your Ground” laws such as the Florida statute used by the George Zimmerman defense in the killing of 16-year-old teenager Trayvon Martin.
