Boston Globe: Brown thanks conservative billionaire David Koch for campaign donations

March 7, 2011- The liberal blog Think Progress has posted exclusive video of US Senator Scott Brown thanking conservative billionaire David Koch for supporting Brown’s campaign last year — and asking him for help in his re-election.

“Your support during the election, it meant a ton,” the Massachusetts Republican is shown telling Koch. “It made a difference and I can certainly use it again.”

Koch and his brother, Charles, are known for multi-million dollar contributions to conservative and libertarian political causes. In what has become a well-publicized example of the power of the Koch brothers, a prankster calling the office of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was recently able to get the embattled governor on the phone by pretending he was David Koch.

According to Think Progress: “David Koch directly gave the National Republican Senatorial Committee $30,400 in November 2009, [two months before Brown was elected] and the Koch Industries PAC threw in $15,000 to NRSC plus $5,000 more directly to Brown right before Brown’s special election.”

The video of Brown was shot on Friday by Think Progress blogger Brad Johnson, using a small Flip camera at the dedication of the David H. Koch Integrative Cancer Institute at MIT, Johnson said today by telephone.
