The David H. Koch Charitable Foundation spent more than a hundred and twenty million. (cricket chirps)
Meanwhile, since 1998 Koch Industries has spent more than fifty million dollars on lobbying and advocating lower personal and corporate taxes, minimal social services and less intrusive oversight of industry as well as for dozens of free-market and advocacy organizations and against universal health care and climate change legislation.

Separately, the company’s political-action committee, KochPAC, has donated some nine million dollars to political campaigns, more than eighty per cent of it to Republicans.
Democrats give money, too. Their most prominent donor, financier George Soros. (leftist cheer wildly) ........A former Nazi sympathizer, convicted of Insider trading in France. (leftist spot shiny object)
Soros runs a foundation, the Open Society Institute, that has spent as much as a hundred million dollars a year in America. Founded by former Obama campaign officials Bill Burton and Sean Sweeney in order to collect and spend money from wealthy donors, including corporations and extorted unions dues. (leftist nod approvingly)
Soros has also made generous private contributions to various Democratic campaigns, including Barack Obama’s.
November 11, 2003, Soros said that removing President George W. Bush from office was the "central focus of my life" and "a matter of life and death". He said he would sacrifice his entire fortune to defeat Bush "if someone guaranteed it." (leftist cheer)
The difference is the left doesn't see their money as dirty.
Political contributions from big labor in the form of extorted union dues, money from sources like the boardrooms of the protective vintage media and wealthy movie industry types is like Angel Poop to them. (leftist clap wildly)
But contributions from Colt Gun co. or industry that creates jobs and once supplied good health-care for their employees is dirty money because of where it goes. (leftist boo)
Soros is good at buying himself and fellow travelers good press by funding Media Matters and the Huffington Post. (leftist look up at the sky and whistle)
