I just found out recently that the Democratic Leadership Council in the 90s was funded by the Koch's. Made me sick.
Here's a tidbit I found out recently. Romney's dad was asked to run for president in 1964. He went to the convention and declined to run. He was from Wisconsin. He told the GOP that they had a fundamental problem in their midst (remember, George himself was a Republican), namely that one of the cofounders of the John Birch Society was ponying up major dollars to invest in that year's presidential campaign. That cofounder was the father of the Koch Brothers, who are now major backers of George's boy, Mitt.
Mitt's dad refused to have anything to do with that element of the Party. His son depends on it.
Interesting, I thought.
