A rare look inside the Koch brothers political empire

The labyrinthian design of the political network backed by the Koch brothers and their fellow conservative donors serves several purposes, but one of the biggest is to ensure the privacy of its financial backers. As we detailed last month, the money flows through a complex maze of tax-exempt groups and limited liability corporations, creating multiple barriers that shield the identities of the donors. Such anonymous contributions should be allowed, Charles Koch has argued, to protect people from the attacks that he and his brother David and their company have fielded. Critics say the Kochs and their allies seek to influence elections without accountability.

Now a document published by Mother Jones provides a rare glimpse inside the closely held network. The spreadsheet -- apparently left behind by a guest who attended a recent Koch-sponsored donor seminar at a resort outside Palm Springs – lists the names of more than 40 top donors, along with the senior Koch officials they met with during the three-day conclave.

This is not the first time we’ve learned the names of some of the Koch network donors. But the document reveals the vast resources of the group’s backers, which includes top corporate executives, hedge fund billionaires and longtime Republican financiers. Several of those in attendance also have been top contributors to American Crossroads, the super PAC co-founded by Karl Rove.

Yep. And people grumble about fixed counts at election points. lol They're usually unaware of the depth of election fixing and the amount of favors running back n forth in the background. apparently, the Harpy gov't is trying to keep our elections from being bought. I hope it works. But, as of yet, I'm still positive that politics and religions are the two biggest banes of humanity.

Didja miss where I said " Politics and religions are the two biggest banes to humanity" and where I said "Apparently"? It should be fairly obvious that I don't trust politicians - especially when I've said it many times. I don't have to read the rules. lol

Govt. works for those who govern. Any benefit to others is purely accidental.

Harper's crowd relies on dirty tricks not money fixing. In the USA both sides
have special groups collecting money. Perhaps the time has come to make
all contributors large and small identify themselves that would do it.
