Secretive non-profit groups obtained hundreds of millions of dollars and tried to influence the outcome of numerous races, without any disclosure of who was bankrolling these operations -- whether U.S. or global corporations or their CEOs.

In order to list everything in which the Koch Brothers are involved, requires a whole website.

However, I will endeavor to list some popular brands, GEORGIA-PACIFIC:
Angel Soft tissue
Brawny towels
Dixie paper products
Mardi Gras napkins
Quilted Northern tissue
Soft'n Gentle tissue
Sparkle napkins
Zee napkins

Shop at your own peril.

Kock Bros should be investigated as well as many other individuals and groups as well.

Green star to Charlene Rush - she's absolutely right - everytime we shop we put money in someone's pockets in return for the item we buy - it is only common sense to make sure it is not putting money in the hands of the Far Right if humanly possible! Thanks Nancy!

I would love to have signed this but I'm not in the States. I have Twittered this since I do think it is very important. Things such as financial influence by these huge and powerful corporations need to be fully investigated and legislation implemented to stop it and laws enforced on anyone or corporate entity that seeks to circumnavigate them.

I think/hope boycotts of the Koch brothers products in at least one area of Canada must be working.

On a shopping expedition, I noticed a huge stand of what I recognized as a Koch brand of toilet paper and paper towel on sale for a VERY low price near the main entrance into a Safeway store.

I was with my sister and explained why I wouldn't purchase those, despite the price, and noticed nobody else picking them up during the period we were in the area - which lends me hope.

But it's hard because they have so many fingers in so many pies, and it's so difficult to remember all the different brand names that I find myself avoiding unfamiliar ones, regardless of price, and as a full-time, unpaid caregiver until my mother's passing, I've been chronically broke... but this matters.

Their profits help to destroy democracy not only for our US neighbours but around the world and buying less overall in paying more for some products is one of the small ways in which I can do my part to not support this.

Thank you for sending a letter to the Senate to demand an investigation of dark money being spent to influence our elections, including the subpoenaing of the Koch brothers and others involved in the big secret money game.

Right-wing, redneck stuff works for them... without getting dirty themselves. They fund the Tea Party. &. Americans for Prosperity group.
KOCH billionaries the epicenter of anti-progressive movement. believe in drastically lower personal and corporate taxes, minimal social services for the needy & less oversight of industry.

( The Kochs are longtime libertarians who fund the Tea Party movement believe in drastically lower personal and corporate taxes, minimal social services for the needy, and much less oversight of industry—especially environmental regulation.)

The fiercely capitalist Koch family funding the Tea Party movements owes part of its fortune to Joseph Stalin. . These views dovetail with the brothers’ corporate interests

Noted, but unable to sign as not US resident. Financial influencing is a big problem in political elections. There has to be a cap and full transparency, but let's face it Big Money doesn't play fair, so it has to be stopped and laws put in place. Right now in my opinion there should be an investigation, but remember it costs big and chances are they can win.
It has sickened my for years now, as I feel that the peoples voices should be heard and abided by without outside influences.
