  • OELKE: Named to national AFP post.
Teresa Oelke of Rogers, the hard-charging paid operative for the vast Koch-funded conspiracy to take over Arkansas government, has been rewarded for her efforts.

She's been named national vice president for state operations for Americans for Prosperity, the front group financed by the Kochs to do nominal "education" work aimed at electing corporate stooge Republican state legislators to battle taxes, Obamacare and environmental regulation at the state level. Her Arkansas affiliate of the group, and allies, spent well more than $1 million to help produce the new Republican legislative majority in Arkansas. She'd held the national job on an interim basis previously, according to her Twitter feed.
