Quarantine the Kochs

On January 30th, 2011, over a thousand rallied outside the secret, biannual Koch conference, a shadowy gathering of corporate tycoons who plan their buying of elections for the upcoming political cycle, along with their ability to shelf legislation that imperils their enormous profits. It is organized by the Koch brothers, the preeminent funders of far-right political and anti-science efforts in the United States.
