David Koch Maxes Out to Scott Brown

On Monday, Public Campaign Action Fund reported that a super PAC created to help re-elect Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) was funded almost entirely by a company controlled by energy industry billionaire Bill Koch, the brother of billionaires Charles and David Koch of Koch Industries.

A tale of two fundraisers: Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown

On Wednesday night, Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren and her opponent Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass) are both holding campaign fundraisers.

Warren is hosting a policy team trivia night fundraiser in Somerville, Ma.—the cost to attend is $20 per person or $100 for a team of five. Brown’s is a little different—he will be at Chef Michel Richard’s restaurant Central in Washington, D.C. where individuals need $1,000 to attend (and $2,500 to host).

Scott Brown holding fundraiser with financial industry lawyers

We reported recently that Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) held a cocktail party fundraiser with Wall Street lobbyists not long after big banks declared war on the candidacy of Brown’s possible opponent, consumer advocacy Elizabeth Warren.
