Koch Industries Subsidiary Cited for Illegal Foreign Campaign Donations

A Koch Industries subsidiary made a dozen illegal donations to "nonfederal candidates and committees), totaling nearly $27,000. This was done from 2005 to 2009.

Oddly, the largest amount went to the Democratic Governors Association; this from Tea Party, Inc.  Smaller amounts went to candidates for state office in Virginia and Delaware, and to Kansas's former attorney general, a big anti-choicer.

Via Roll Call:

The Federal Election Commission has fined a Luxembourg subsidiary of Kansas-based Koch Industries Inc. $4,700 for making illegal foreign campaign contributions. [...]

Foreign nationals, including overseas subsidiaries of U.S. companies, are barred from making campaign donations to any political campaigns or committees, whether federal, state or local. [...] INVISTA’s actual headquarters are in Kansas, but it was organized under the laws of Luxembourg and operated an administrative office there, the FEC found.

Drop. In. Bucket.

    Maybe you shouldn't lump all liberals together Troy. I've mentioned a few
    things about Cuomo to many people that are negatives, as have other libs.
    Then again, you just enjoy leaving comments like these from time to time, so
    this was nothing new.
