Satan is getting another guest room ready to welcome home favorite son David Koch (pronounced like “Coke” dontcha know), the Republican mega-donor and one half of the Koch Brothers:
“The 78-year-old New York resident is suffering from deteriorating health, according to a letter that older brother Charles Koch sent to company officials Tuesday morning.
“Charles Koch wrote that he is ‘deeply saddened’ by his brother’s retirement. ‘David has always been a fighter and is dealing with this challenge in the same way,’ he wrote.
“Koch is also stepping down as chairman of the board for the Americans For Prosperity Foundation, the charity related to Koch brothers’ primary political organization. … Charles Koch had assumed a more visible leadership role in the brothers’ affairs in recent years. He will continue to serve as the CEO of Koch Industries and the unofficial face of the network’s political efforts.”
The boys are the sons of Fred Koch, who was a founder of the John Birch Society, and came into their vast fortune the old-fashioned way: they inherited it.
You can name any societal ill and chances are good that David Koch has his fingers in it to make it even worse. He will not be missed.
