The Koch Coup: Charles Koch's Political Machine Bankrolled Senators Who Will Attempt to Steal Election for Trump Tomorrow - 2021-01-05
Charles Koch's political operation and his close family members have funded the campaigns and leadership PACs of all 13 U.S. senators who will attempt to stop Congress from certifying Joe Biden's victory on Jan. 6 based on Trump's conspiracy theories and lies. When Congress convenes on Jan. 6 to certify the Electoral College results giving Joe Biden a clear victory in the 2020 presidential election, 13 right-wing senators will attempt to block the process in clear violation of the Constitution they swore an oath to defend.
All 13 of those senators have received the financial backing of Charles Koch, whose political operation and family have spent more than $15 million to put them in the Senate.
Heavily Koch-funded independent spending groups have poured millions of dollars into election ads and canvassing to help five of these senators win their races. Meanwhile, Koch Industries PAC (Koch PAC), the Koch Industries-affiliated Aegis PAC, and members of the Koch family have together donated over $600,000 to the campaigns and leadership PACs of all 13, according to data from the Federal Election Commission.
