The Koch Brothers Are Involved In Election Fraud In Wisconsin

Apparently if you're rich... laws and morality don't apply to you...

1. Wisconsin Dems file complaint over ‘Koch brothers-funded scheme to suppress votes’

 The Democratic Party of Wisconsin filed a complaint on Tuesday seeking to stop what it called a Koch brothers-funded scheme to suppress Democratic votes in upcoming Republican recall elections.
Politico reported that Americans for Prosperity sent absentee ballots to Democrats in two Wisconsin state Senate recall districts with instructions that could render the votes ineligible.
Ballots must be received by August 9 to be counted, but the instructions say to return the paperwork two days later, by August 11.

2. More about the Koch Brothers:
The conservative billionaire duo's Americans for Prosperity nonprofit has spent $700,000 on ads supporting the governor's record  as the recall effort against him gains steam.  Last year, they were reportedly behind Walker  in his showdown with unions over the state budget.


3. Koch Brothers Behind Wisconsin Effort To Kill Public Unions

As the nation focuses on the efforts of Governor Scott Walker to take away collective bargaining rights from public employees in Wisconsin, new information is coming to light that reveals what is truly going on here.
Mother Jones is reporting  that much of the funding behind the Walker for Governor campaign came from none other than uber-conservatives, the infamous Koch Brothers.
What’s more, the plan to kill the unions is right out of the Koch Brothers play book.
Koch-backed groups like Americans for Prosperity, the Cato Institute, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, and the Reason Foundation have long
 taken  a very  antagonistic  view  toward public-sector unions. Several of these groups have urged the eradication of these unions. The Kochs also invited Mark Mix ,
president of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, an anti-union outfit, to a June 2010 confab in Aspen, Colorado;
If you are reluctant to believe that this is a coordinated attack, consider this-
This afternoon, Marty Beil, executive director of the Wisconsin Public Workers Union, sent a message to the Governor’s office agreeing to the cuts to pension & welfare benefits sought by Walker in his bill.  The governor’s response was “nothing doing.”  He wants the whole kit and kaboodle – the end of the collective bargaining rights of the public unions.
As noted in my earlier post , this is, indeed, the first shot in the final battle to end unionism in America.

Which reminded me of this poster...

Koch Brothers Flout Law Getting Richer With Secret Iran Sales

 In May 2008, a unit of Koch Industries  Inc., one of the world’s largest privately held companies, sent Ludmila Egorova-Farines, its newly hired compliance officer and ethics manager, to investigate the management of a subsidiary in Arles in southern France. In less than a week, she discovered that the company had paid bribes to win contracts.
“I uncovered the practices within a few days,” Egorova- Farines says. “They were not hidden at all.”

Bribes to the EPA!
