Charles and David Koch (Koch pronounced COKE) are extraordinarily wealthy Americans who contribute large amounts from their own fortunes to political causes. Inheriting a massive amount of money from their father, who made his fortune in the oil industry (including oil wells in Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia)--the Koch bros are a malevolent force that will stop at nothing to keep the oil industry at the top of the energy pyramid.
The Koch brothers run a network of many super-wealthy conservatives determined to reshape US politics and public policy in libertarian and anti-government directions.
