Reid’s Koch Money
From a lobbyist in 2003.
Harry Reid has truly become the crazy uncle in the attic, never ceasing his rants against the Koch brothers. On the Senate floor Monday, he said, “Many Republican senators these days might as well wear Koch industries insignias. While they don’t wear Koch industries ties and jackets, they display their sponsors proudly through their actions here in the United States Senate.” So it’s interesting that the list of Senate Democrats who have received Koch money over the years includes Mary Landrieu, Mark Pryor, Chuck Schumer and … Harry Reid, albeit in his case a small donation from a lobbyist way back in 2003. The Washington Free Beacon’s Andrew Stiles quipped, “[H]e might as well pay one of his grandchildren to stitch Koch insignias onto his suit to denote their sponsorship.”
