Koch's Puppet Caucus

Yesterday I saw an article on Think Progress

By Brad Johnson posted from ThinkProgress Green on Jan 20, 2012 at 12:35 pm
Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI), top of the Koch Caucus with $27,000 in Koch contributions.
Five senators and 40 congressional representatives received a perfect 100 percent score from the Koch brothers’ astroturf group Americans For Prosperity for the first half of the 112th Congress  ... 
Below is a compilation of the 40 members of the Congressional Koch Caucus, in addition to their contributions received from Koch Industries, according to data compiled from

And the table made me start to wonder - is this just part of the story?

So I thought I’d take a look at it and see who on this list have ties to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).  And yes exactly ½ of them have ties to ALEC.  Thinking about the other half – I thought, what about the Tea Party and sure enough – almost all the rest had ties to the Tea Party.

What does this prove – really nothing for a person who expected to see something similar to this.

BUT – if you aren’t aware and you don’t do the homework – you will miss the connections that are really there.

You really have to know who the puppets are whenever you are talking about the Koch brother puppeteers.

I wonder how much the puppets get paid for their performance for the Koch's.
I wonder how many Koch strings are attached to these puppets.

ALEC members and those affiliated with ALEC in any manner
MUST NOT BE RE-ELECTED or receive our support in any means or manner!

Without state and federal legislators ALEC will cease to exist and it will implode.
