Today’s Quote: Brother Admits Koch Industries is an ‘Organized Crime’ Operation

As if those of us who have kept up with the Koch’s sleazy political fun-and-games had any doubt that Koch Industries chieftains David and Charles were crooks, but it’s nice to have confirmation from a family member.

“[William] Koch says that Koch Industries engaged in “organized crime. And management driven from the top down.”

” ‘It was – was my family company. I was out of it,’ he says. ‘But that’s what appalled me so much… I did not want my family, my legacy, my father’s legacy to be based upon organized crime.’ ”
