Our Koch Brothers Exposed video investigation has discovered something so tragic it will haunt Charles and David Koch for years to come.
While the brothers wage war against safety precautions, every day their factory is dumping millions of gallons of wastewater into streams that flow near a small rural town in Arkansas.
“The Koch brothers are killing me and my family,” Norma Thompson, a Crossett, Arkansas resident told us during our investigation. She’s lived near the Koch brothers’ mill for 39 years.
In many ways, the Koch brothers personify what’s driving people young and old to fight money in politics, occupy Wall Street and protest in the streets. People are rising up and have identified the overwhelming corporate influence on democracy as a corrosive stain that harms the rest of us.
Our latest video reflects this as we follow the money and prove the Koch brothers buy a system that makes them richer at the expense of everyone else. Through political donations, think tanks and front groups, the Koch brothers are able to weaken safety and oversight laws, which leaves communities like Crossett, Arkansas behind to suffer.
We can stop the Koch brothers from poisoning towns and cities. Local community leaders in Arkansas have volunteered to hand deliver messages directly to Charles and David Koch.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
