Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown Begs David Koch For Money By Jacob Wheeler | March 8, 2011 LikeTweet EmailPrint More More on Campaign Finance Subscribe to Campaign Finance Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has seen his Republican Senate majority cut from 5 votes to 1 vote. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker isn’t the only one indebted to the Koch brothers for his political success — and asking for more. At the public dedication of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s David H. Koch Integrative Cancer Institute last Friday, Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA, who occupies the late Ted Kennedy’s seat) effusively thanked conservative billionaire David Koch for supporting his election in 2010 and made a plea for help in his re-election campaign next year. Koch directly gave the National Republican Senatorial Committee $30,400 in November 2009, and the Koch Industries PAC threw in $15,000 to NRSC plus $5,000 more directly to Brown right before Brown’s special election. In the video exchange, Brown thanks Koch and his wife Julia (off-camera) for their support, saying “I can certainly use it again.” Support this story and all the stories from The Uptake. Donate.
