American Bridge releases report on Koch brothers' environmental impacts and layoffs

Posted By on Fri, Aug 15, 2014 at 1:49 PM

American Bridge, the liberal PAC formed by David Brock, the former Clinton foe now dedicated to round-the-clock Hillary Clinton defender, is out today with a new report on environmental impacts and layoffs from Koch Industries. The report focuses on the business activities of the Koch brothers — more famous for hundreds of millions in political spending aimed at slashing government services, regulation and taxes — in twelve states, including Arkansas. 

From the report: "The Kochs' extreme, self-serving agenda is bad for working families. And that reality is starkly embodied not only by their political persuasions, but by their business endeavors." 

The Arkansas section mentions Georgia-Pacific layoffs in Crossett and Fordyce, and pollution leading to exposure to toxic chemicals in Crossett schools and water pollution in Coffee Creek. You can read the full report here.

    It had to happen. Donald Trump's debate interjection that Hillary Clinton was a "nasty woman" has become a battle cry among women; a Twitter meme; a Facebook favorite, and, naturally, a marketing opportunity for T-shirt, button and bumper sticker makers.
