Follow the money is wise advice.
The Kansas Chamber of Commerce, for example, spent more than $231,000 in July alone trying to defeat a dozen Republican state senators seeking re-election. The biggest donor to the chamber’s effort remains Wichita-based Koch Industries, Inc., which gave the C of C PAC $125,000 last month alone. That’s more than half of the total raised. All from one family-owned company.
Why, Kansans should ask, do the Koch brothers spend so much money trying to buy Kansas government? The $125,000 is just a fraction of their 2012 contributions to radical right candidates.
