Hypocrite of the Year: Koch-Hater Harry Reid Took Money From Koch Lobbyist
Democrat Senate Majority leader Harry Reid called the conservative Koch brothers “Un-American” in a March speech.
Reid, who was recently caught giving political money to his granddaughter, frequently attacks the conservative brothers.
Reid hates the Koch Brothers – But, he doesn’t hate their money.
The Democratic leader took money from a Koch lobbyist.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Add Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) to the list of Senate Democrats who have benefitted from Koch money. In fact, he might as well pay one of his grandchildren to stitch Koch insignias onto his suit to denote their sponsorship:
According to campaign finance records, former Koch Industries lobbyist Robert P. Hall III donated $500 to Reid’s campaign in 2003.
Hall worked for Koch Industries from 1998 to 2004, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. He was previously a lobbyist for INVISTA, the Koch Industries subsidiary that Democrats are targeting in their latest campaign to “other” the Koch brothers. Hall currently lobbies for General Electric, the chief sponsor of explanatory journalism website Vox.com. Coincidence? Maybe.
Many Republican senators might as well wear Koch insignias to denote their sponsorship. pic.twitter.com/tcDY5nZPTm
