    RICO is a very difficult statute to prosecute under and particularly for people who have never been convicted of a crime in the past. One of the RICO tests is showing a pattern of criminal behavior, as measured in convictions. However, why would a prosecutor need RICO if the Koch Brothers are breaking the law now? If they are violating federal law today why wait for the evidence to build a RICO case, take them to the grand jury today.
