Billionaire Koch Brothers Try to Secretly Buy Seat for Markwayne Mullin

Oklahoma City– The organization known as Americans For Prosperity, which is funded by Billionaire Republican brothers Charles and David Koch, has infiltrated Oklahoma and is trying to buy the open seat in Congressional District 2.

According to the Americans for Prosperity website: On November 1st, AFP asked for help in “educating” 30,000 voters in Oklahoma’s 2nd Congressional District with deceitful door knockers.

Republican candidate Markwayne Mullin has consistently shown a pattern of bad behavior and continues that trend by working with the Koch brothers to essentially purchase the seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“They have billions of dollars at their disposal and so they try to solve problems with their money,” said Oklahoma Democratic Party Chairman Wallace Collins. “Markwayne Mullin and the Koch brothers would destroy rural hospitals, force smaller schools to close, and get rid of programs, like social security, that as citizens, we have earned our entire lives.”
