And now for something completely different…
Conservative mega-donor Charles Koch, known for his support of libertarian and Republican causes, is opening his wallet on an unexpected issue.
Koch, according to a story published Sunday by The Wichita Eagle, plans to increase his efforts for criminal justice reform.
“Over the next year, we are going to be pushing the issues key to this, which need a lot of work in this country,” Koch said, according to the paper. “And that would be freedom of speech, cronyism and how that relates to opportunities for the disadvantaged.”
Koch added that changes are needed, “especially for the disadvantaged,” whom he said feel the impact the most.
He also cited the need to reform criminal sentences, which he said need to be “more appropriate to the crime that has been committed.”
The continuing demonizing of the Koch brothers is one of the more appalling lies abetted by the MSM. Far more open-minded and less single-issue than any of their Democrat big money counterparts, Charles and David Koch spread their money around to a variety of causes and politicians that would surprise anyone who only knows them from the media characterizations. While prominent progressives are encouraging “protesters” to disrupt holiday shopping, travel and traffic in the name of criminal justice reform, Charles Koch is taking out his checkbook to affect real change.
Charles Koch is no Al Sharpton, he’s actually doing something that might help.
