Koch Brothers Invoice Romney 500 Million For ‘Services Not Rendered’

Hall of Famer
 
November 7, 2012 4:01 PM

     After Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was soundly defeated in the 2012 election, the hits kept coming. The billionaire Koch brothers were huge contributors to his campaign, both directly and indirectly. It seems they aren’t happy with the result and are holding Romney responsible. Immediately after Romney conceded, the Koch boys emailed an invoice to Romney demanding 500 million dollars for what they termed “services not rendered.”

     Thanks to the Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court, unlimited amounts of money were poured into the Romney campaign by obscenely wealthy contributors who felt that they could buy the election. Like good capitalists, they of course expected a return on their investments in Mr. Romney.

Since there is no proof of any email and that would have been confidential, I find this story to be a bit much....................

It's their idea of a joke. Wish we could make obama pay for "services not rendered", and "damages to the country." Boy oh boy, 500 million wouldn't even start to touch that!!!

I should have guessed. Since I know they have no sense of humor, I assumed they thought it to be true.

Could this story have merit?  I suppose it could but either way it is no secret that both sides had their huge contributors that remained and still remain unknown.   To suggest that the Republicans are the only ones that are funded this way is absurd and discrediting at best.

Had it been The Onion, I would have realized.  Didn't know this site. My error.

One of the many great things about this election is that it proved that people like the Koch Brothers and the despicable gambling tycoon,Sheldon Adelson, with all their money, still can't have any assurance of buying an election.  The Citizens United-enabled  crowd crammed really big  money into Allen West's campaign, so much so that he outspent his democratic opponent 4.7 to won.  But West, a  truly uncivil, flannel-mouthed wing nut. lost anyway!

FYI, goldman Sachs and many other "evil" wall st firms were some of obama's biggest donors in '08. However, being the unoriginal kool-aid drinker that you are I am sure you didn't realize that.

And being the unoriginal clueless dingbat that YOU are, you apparently did not know that the Citizens United decision had not even been rendered in 2008, so the limitations that applied to Wall Street firms or other corporate donors had not been radically liberalized at that time.

Maybe they could have asked Soros how to do it.  He made defeating GW his goal in life, of course, he failed. But everyone needs a hobby, no matter how stupid it is.

 

Soros was not a large donor to US political causes until the 2004 presidential election, in an interview with The Washington Post on November 11, 2003, Soros said that removing President George W. Bush from office was the "central focus of my life" and "a matter of life and death".

 

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, during the 2003–2004 election cycle, Soros donated $23,581,000 to various 527 groups dedicated to defeating President Bush.
