From Wichita Peace and Freedom Party Examiner;
One of the largest global industries, Koch Industries Inc. is run by brothers Charles and David Kock. They are Wichita, KS natives, yet they and their company can be found all around the country and elsewhere. Now Bloomberg Markets magazine has put out a long coverstory of all the crimes and scandles of that corporation.
This is the kind of corporation that the Occupy Wallstreet movement is after. The Kock brothers are strong supporters of the Tea Party movement. They have spent as much as a $100,00 or more to the support of single Republican candidates over the years.
But now it is bribery, a shabby EPA record, and shady deals which are being reported on the Kock brothers and the company the bears their name.
According to the Magazine;
"A Bloomberg Markets investigation has found that Koch Industries -- in addition to being involved in improper payments to win business in Africa, India and the Middle East -- has sold millions of dollars of petrochemical equipment to Iran, a country the U.S. identifies as a sponsor of global terrorism."
The article aslo documents violations of EPA regulations and leaky pipelines. For examepl one case invoved the killing of two teachers when a leak from a butane pipeline exploded. The article claimed many of the Kock chemical pipelines are like swiss cheese with so many holes in them.
The article documents lots of allegations of bribery to get job bids all over the world. It’s a long article and highly damaging to the reputation of Kock Industries. The article accuses Kock of being secretive about everything they do including political meetings with candidates they back.
This only adds fuel to the Occupy Wallstreet movement and may prove an embarassment to the Tea Party.
