After months of being on the receiving end of countless vicious attacks from the Democrat party, the Koch brothers have received a fund raising letter and call from Patty Murray promising them that a five-figure contribution to the DSCC would garner them a retreat in Kiawh Island with Dem luminaries in September.
As you can imagine, the Kochs were not amused, and Koch Industry’s President of Government and Public affairs let them know in no uncertain (but cordial) terms that they find the DCCC’s efforts to be hypocritical and repulsive:
Senator Patty Murray, Chair
Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee
Dear Senator Murray:
For many months now, your colleagues in the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee leadership have engaged in a series of disparagements and ad hominem attacks about us, apparently as part of a concerted political and fundraising strategy. Just recently, Senator Reid wrote in a DSCC fundraising letter that Republicans are trying to “force through their extreme agenda faster than you can say ‘Koch Brothers.’”
So you can imagine my chagrin when I got a letter from you on June 17 asking us to make five-figure contributions to the DSCC. You followed that up with a voicemail* indicating that, if we contributed heavily enough, we would garner an invitation to join you and other Democratic leaders at a retreat in Kiawah Island this September.
I’m hoping you can help me understand the intent of your request because it’s hard not to conclude that DSCC politics have become so cynical that you actually expect people whom you routinely denounce to give DSCC money.
It is troubling that private citizens taking part in the discourse have become the targets of White House and DSCC fundraising missives, and we would certainly encourage you to rethink that approach. Ultimately, I expect voters will see through that and will weigh the issues on the merits alone. But in the meantime, if you could provide me some insight on what exactly you are asking of us and why, I would be most grateful.

What was Patty Murray thinking? Does she not realize that the Koch bros are considered to be the root of all evil in this country by the
drones liberal mob party faithful? What could this woman be thinking?
Think I’m kidding?
Here are some Koch Brothers Exposed commenter answers to the question, “What is the worst thing the Koch brothers have done?”
I think it’s worst that these brothers claim they are Christian but they acts are of the devil. They are wolves in sheep’s clothing. They truly given being a Christian a bad name.
The worst is that they should continue to be US citizens. They need to be prosecuted for crimes against humanity.actually, EVERYTHING these guys do is HORRIBLE.They have the American Dream unfortunately they want to make sure no one else can obtain it. They are destroying the American economy and middle class so that they can have it all.Spreading the lies of the John Birch society. Helping to elect Nixon, Reagan and Bush. Spreading propaganda.
I think all of these things are very BAD for the american working people. These FAT Cats are ANTI-AMERICAN.
Too hard to choose just one, they are all bad. These guys are just downright evil.
