Harry Reid Took Money from Koch Lobbyist -- By Andrew Stiles, The Washington Free Beacon, Video PatDollard.com

Koch-funded politician Harry Reid.

Add Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) to the list of Senate Democrats who have benefitted from Koch money. In fact, he might as well pay one of his grandchildren to stitch Koch insignias onto his suit to denote their sponsorship:

According to campaign finance records, former Koch Industries lobbyist Robert P. Hall III donated $500 to Reid’s campaign in 2003.

Hall worked for Koch Industries from 1998 to 2004, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. He was previously a lobbyist for INVISTA, the Koch Industries subsidiary that Democrats are targeting in their latest campaign to “other” the Koch brothers. Hall currently lobbies for General Electric, the chief sponsor of explanatory journalism website Vox.com. Coincidence? Maybe.

In public, Reid has attacked the Kochs as “un-American” and “against everything that’s good for America.” This is not surprising, however, given the fact that Reid is a raging hypocrite.

The revelation that Reid is a Koch-funded politician comes days after the majority leader’s former colleague, Hillary Clinton, was caught discussing her upcoming memoir at the David H. Koch Theater in Manhattan.
