I explain how a special tax break inserted into the GOP tax plan benefits real estate partnership investors, including several senators and representatives including Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) who voted for the bill. IBT broke this news in December and continued covering the topic with more than 10 stories.
I described the Koch brothers' considerable influence in the Trump White House on Thom Hartmann's The Big Picture. From the vice president on down, the Kochs have numerous allies in powerful governmental positions. My original article for AlterNet on the topic is here.
I explained the chaotic situation in the North Carolina governor's race, which has Republican Gov. Pat McCrory trailing his Democratic challenger by roughly 9,500 votes (as of 11/28/16). Despite Cooper's lead, which has grown consistently since Election Day, and numerous failed voter fraud complaints lodged by the governor and GOP attorneys, McCrory still refuses to concede.
After AlterNet published my article on Charles Koch's network of free-market education professors and think tanks, which meets once a year to share strategies for having an outsize influence on college and university campuses, I spoke with Thom Hartmann about the topics.
Thom Hartmann invited me on to talk about an AlterNet investigation of mine that detailed the Koch political spending network in Arizona and how the state began funding three Koch-backed free-market centers at public universities in the state.
I went on The Real News to talk about my AlterNet investigation that detailed the Koch political spending network in Arizona and how the state began funding three Koch-backed free-market centers at public universities in the state.
I went on Time Warner Cable News to discuss my investigation into North Carolina's anti-LGBT "bathroom bill." I found that many companies that publicly opposed the bill had in fact made political donations that helped elect the law's sponsors and the governor who signed it.
Georgia Public Broadcasting had me on to discuss my Facing South investigation, which determined that foundations led by Charles Koch gave $108 million to colleges and universities from 2005 to 2014.
