Anti-VAWA activists tied to Koch

As noted in previous updates, the legal action currently being taken against the Violence Against Women Act appears to be linked to Koch Industries, who would have much to gain by the law being changed following recent human rights abuses.

FS is currently investigating staff members at openly anti-VAWA organizations for financial links to Koch Industries.

Investigations as of 10:30 PM EST April 5:

Anti-VAWA individuals checked: 5

Individuals who have received financial, political, or business support directly from Koch Industries or a Koch family-owned entity: 4

Individuals with thusfar inconclusive results: 1

Significant evidence attained thusfar/more likely to be involved with Koch: 1

Insignificant evidence/less likely to be involved with Koch: 0

Only individuals who have been 100% vetted as being tied to entities funded by the Koch family will be listed here.
