Coca-Cola, Intuit, and Kraft have joined Pepsi in renouncing membership in the American Legislative Exchange Council, a right-wing, corporate-funded organization that pushed -- hard -- for the shoot-first legislation that is hampering efforts to arrest and prosecute Trayvon's Martin's shooter. ALEC also is a proponent of restrictive voter ID laws; the two issues prompted progressive advocacy African-American group Color of Change to target the group this week with a petition campaign.
