Billionaire conservative activists Charles and David Koch are pulling out all the stops to try and deny a link between Koch Industries and the politically controversial Keystone XL Pipeline and Canadian tar sands.
Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) invited the Kochs to testify before Congress about their leverage in the project and what they stand to gain should the pipeline go through. Notoriously camera shy the Kochs are doing what they can to avoid testifying, enlisting surrogates like Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS) and launching a brand new public relations push.
Here’s their latest attempt to spin their link to the Keystone XL Pipeline:
Just because the Koch brothers are worth billions doesn’t mean our Congress should be beholden to them. Help hold Koch Industries and Congress accountable and make sure good public policy, not unlimited corporate dollars drive policy like the Keystone XL Pipeline.
