Slime-Ball Politics From the Kochs: Fake Evictions

Abby Zimet

The Koch Bros. may have reached a new low with fake eviction notices on homes in Detroit - with one of the highest foreclosure rates nationwide - to scare people into opposing a new bridge to Canada. Oh yeah: the old bridge is owned by a friend of theirs. They said the notices were meant to "startle" people, and they did - one resident said his mother "damn near keeled over."  Critics savaged the move as "emotional terrorism...substantively shameful, contextually inexcusable," which sounds about right.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
