LOD: Koch/Pope Audio

Mother Jones magazine has released an audio tape of an exclusive retreat of hard-right millionaires, convened by the now infamous Koch brothers. During the event’s activities, Charles Koch spent a few minutes saluting about 30 donors who had contributed at least a million dollars each in the previous 12 months to the Kochs’ causes – and there was North Carolina’s own Art Pope on the list (and likely in the Vail, Colorado, audience ). In a second installment of its audio-expose, MJ reveals the guts of a speech New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie gave the crowd where he declares it’s time to “take on” public school teachers’ and their union, reduce Medicare and Medicaid benefits, raise the Social Security eligibility age, and cut “all types of government programs.”
