But this one is real. Someone tapes Scott Brown thanking David Koch for his financial support in his first election and asking for more next year.

Think Progress


  BROWN: Your support during the election, it meant a ton. It made a difference and I can certainly use it again. Obviously, the –

    KOCH: When are you running for the next term?

    BROWN: ’12.

    KOCH: Oh, okay.

    BROWN: I’m in the cycle right now. We’re already banging away.

In a country with a well-informed electorate this would be the END of Scott Brown's reputation as a moderate. Les freres Koch do not support moderates.

The video is worth a look.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
