Those Sneaky Koch Brothers

KochtopusThat sound you hear is heads exploding in the 12th district as the far-Left tries to figure out what to do now. According to FEC reports Congressman John Barrow has received $10,000 in donations over the past two years from Koch Industries (you can look them up for yourself here). For the uninitiated out there, the Koch Brothers are the most evil brothers on planet earth. They’ve even had a documentary made about them, which was so scary it had to be updated for 2014. How could John Barrow accept money from these people?

Nevertheless, the Barrow Campaign sent out an email today asking for money to fight against Koch Brother funded attack ads:

We just got some devastating news! The Koch Brothers, the out-of-state billionaires who are buying elections across the country, just dropped $1 million to attack John.

We have to replenish our Rapid Response Fund right now, and we need your help.

Can we count on you to help right now?

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

Express Donate: $5
Express Donate: $15
Express Donate: $35
Express Donate: $50
Express Donate: $100
Or donate another amount.

With 3 weeks left to go, this could mean the difference between winning or losing. After all of John’s hard work to visit and listen to voters across the 12th District, it could come down to two guys who live in New York to decide this election for Rick Allen. We absolutely cannot let that happen!

Thanks for helping us out!

Team Barrow

Can one be simultaneously supported and opposed by the Koch Brothers? Apparently in the case of Congressman John Barrow the answer is yes.

    Nothing unusual about business interests hedging their political contributions. “Far-left” residents of GA-12 don’t really have a candidate, anyway.

      … or progamtic observers who are sick of having Barrow/Allen commericals take up over 50% of the ad time during the Big Bang Theory for a district far-west of their home but in their TV viewing area.

        Three letters would solve this problem: DVR.

        Although to me, the political ads would be a lot more entertaining than that show.
