Attacking the Kochs
FREE BEACON — By Andrew Evans
The latest attacks on the Koch brothers, coming just weeks before the 2012 election, are riddled with hypocrisy and misrepresentations . . .

Because it wasn’t there. So where did Goldberg likely get the idea that it was? It started with an article from the far-left In These Times website which on Saturday published a piece entitled “Koch Sends Pro-Romney Mailing to 45,000 Employees While Stifling Workplace Political Speech.”
