Report: Koch Brothers Toxic to Both Environment, Politics


OHIO-KOCH-REPORT-COVER-232x300As the Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity holds its 2015 national conference in Columbus, Ohio, the Bridge Project is releasing its report on the impact of the Kochs’ operations in Ohio, a critical swing state for both the 2016 presidential election and Democrats’ chances to take back control of the U.S. Senate.

The report details how the Kochs use their business and the political system to advocate for state and local policies to benefit themselves at the expense of the middle class and the environment.

“Charles and David Koch recently announced they are on track to raise and spend almost $900 million during the 2016 election cycle to push their candidates and policies, effectively giving their network parity with national political parties. However, the Kochs’ spending is not motivated by patriotic or civic duty – it’s motivated by their bottom line.”
