America Rising PAC, the GOP opposition network founded by Matt Rhoades and Joe Pounder, has set its sights on Jane Mayer, shopping around accusations that she has ideological bias.

Mayer, who has been chronicling the Kochs for years, recently published a book about the rise of conservative activism by a few rich families, called "Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right."

In the book, Mayer explores the Kochs' history including that Charles and David Koch's father, Fred, helped construct a major oil refinery in Nazi Germany that was personally approved by Adolf Hitler. Koch Industries has not denied the fact but has said that within context the refinery was years before Germany invaded Poland and that many U.S. companies were working in Germany during the period and that "when it became clear that Hitler's government was a tyrannical regime, Mr. Koch ceased doing business there."
