Not One Penny Response to Koch Brothers Attacks on Senator Heidi Heitkamp

Wednesday, March 21, 2018


WICHITA, Kansas – Today, Not One Penny spokesperson Tim Hogan released the following statement in reaction to the stunning hypocrisy of a new advertising campaign attacking Senator Heidi Heitkamp by the Koch-backed group Americans for Prosperity.

“The ‘Koch Brothers’ and ‘special interests’ are literally the same thing. These billionaire brothers and their network of shady corporate donors are criticizing Senator Heitkamp for one reason: she stood up for North Dakotans and voted against a taxpayer-funded giveaway that would have padded the Koch Brothers wallets to the tune of $1,400,000,000, and they are not too happy about it.

“The Koch Brothers have committed to spend upwards of $400 million to distort the truth. When they claim Senator Heitkamp is not looking out for ‘us,’ technically they are right: she is not looking out for two Wichita-based billionaires who are dedicated to rigging the political system against North Dakota’s working families.”
