The New Yorker's Jane Mayer offers an in-depth look
at billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch - well-known
philanthropists, not-so-well-known funders of the Tea Party movement,
Greenpeace-dubbed "kingpins of climate science denial,"
and indefatigable supporters of right-wing think tanks, front groups
and noble causes like corporate tax cuts, minimal social services, no
health reform and, now, Tea Party fever. The lesson: Money talks,
skillfully.

founded it. It's like they put the seeds in the ground. Then the
rainstorm comes, and the frogs come out of the mud..." - GOP consultant on Koch underground support of the Tea Party
