As the Wall Street Journal reports, Democrats are beginning to shine some light on the Koch brothers dark world. That includes the Koch tentacles that reach into our state:
In North Carolina, Democrats think they have found a way to counter the Kochs at a chemical factory the company owns along the Cape Fear River, where, right before the holidays last year, 100 workers learned they would lose their jobs. Senator Kay Hagan, Democrat of North Carolina, who has been the target of millions of dollars in negative ads from Americans for Prosperity, said the job cuts were a cruel slap to her state, especially since they came right as the group started to spend significant sums attacking her.
“They’re spending millions of dollars to try to buy a United States Senate seat,” she said. “These individuals have actually laid off workers in my state.”
Charles Koch doesn't like it when his dark, dank little operation is exposed to sunshine.
Last week, Charles Koch made a rare public defense of his political and business endeavors, writing in an op-ed article published in The Wall Street Journal, “Far from trying to rig the system, I have spent decades opposing cronyism and all political favors, including mandates, subsidies and protective tariffs — even when we benefit from them.”
Ha ha ha! Good one Chuck! And they say that the WSJ doesn't have funnies in it.
Apparently, not many people know about the Koch brothers, and it seems that perhaps those who find out about them don't tend to take a fancy to their attempts to purchase the US government.
We think it's high time that the Koch brothers got a lot more exposure!
