The Democrats’ super-villains for much of the last decade have quiet a rebranding launched the effort, which may be the “Koch brothers” moniker from the American policy defeat. The catalyst came earlier in the year, when the ailing conservative billionaire David Koch resigned from the family business, older brother, leaving Charles as the undisputed leader of the cook, ” web of the expansion of the political and political organizations.

There are few, if any, clearly identifiable connections between the Kochs and their most active offshoot organizations such as Americans for prosperity, freedom partners, or the LIBRE Initiative. But in the days after the younger billionaire’s retreat, a representative of the company pushed journalists quickly began all over the country to change the references of the “Koch brothers” in their reporting on the “cooking network” or one of its less identifiable people.
