America’s richest brothers Charles and David Koch
generally like to wield their influence from behind closed doors. The
conservative billionaire industrialists might be the most influential
political donors in the country, but they work quietly, under the radar.
If they’ve been giving millions towards a Republican victory this
election cycle, as has been widely reported, they’ve been doing so via
nonprofits that don’t disclose their benefactors, so there’s no paper
trail. Younger brother David founded right-leaning tax exempt group
Americans for Prosperity, but there’s no way of telling whether he or
Charles are funding the outfit, which spends millions on anti-Obama ads
in swing states.
