Who?

     I read this part of an al.com story about Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks blasting the President's proposed immigration reform bill with interest:

Brooks said in his speech on the House floor that he was basing his comments on those made last month by Dr. Frank Morris, leader of the African American Leadership Council.
     I had never heard of the Council, so I did a quick search and quickly found it was formed by the Tanton Network to split Black and Latino communities on the issue.
     Hey, everyone wants to promote their own agenda...especially on an issue as divisive as Immigration...but let's not hide behind shell organizations.
     And al.com ought to identify the background of an organization when they quote Rep. Brooks uses their data to justify his position.
