View Full Version : General Herman Cain ADMITS He's a KOCH

11-06-2011, 10:13 PM
Following a New York Times story suggesting that Cain is in bed with the conservative billionaire Koch Brothers, the candidate announced at today’s conference held by Americans for Prosperity, “I am the Koch brothers’ brother from another mother.”

"Cain didn’t discuss yesterday’s Times article about how the Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity had allegedly jump-started Cain’s campaign with illegal contributions. He was mere feet from David Koch himself and other AFP execs. By acknowledging the ties between the two parties, Cain could be digging himself deeper into a hole that has been dug by sex scandals and flip-flopping in recent weeks."

DC-based watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission over just how exactly Cain is creating that union, hoping that the group with launch a probe into Cain’s campaign contributions. As a nonprofit, Americans for Prosperity is prohibited from participating in political activity. David Koch had co-founded the organization though and had on its payroll at one time Mr. David Block, the cigarette smoking aid to Cain that famously appeared in a recent campaign ad.

Koch Industries (pronounced "coke") has been described by Hoovers as "one of the largest (if not the largest)" privately owned company in the United States. [1] The company states that it "owns a diverse group of companies involved in refining and chemicals; process and pollution control equipment and technologies; minerals; fertilizers; polymers and fibers; commodity trading and services; forest and consumer products; and ranching."[2] The company was started in 1927 by Fred Koch, an early member of the John Birch Society.[3] The company is led by Charles Koch and David Koch, arguably two of the leading and most influential financiers of anti-regulation and right-wing ideology in the United States.

I've never heard it pronounced that way. Interesting. I wonder how the nickname "Kochtupus" came to be.
