Koch Bros Have Stooge in Sarasota

From Sarasota Patch: 

[Sarasota Resident Asshat Michael] Fox is providing funding for 10,000 signs to be placed in strategic locations throughout the country, in places that are highly visible, similar to the sign placement on Tamiami Trail but Fox is not providing funding for individual signs.

Willis stated that Fox is a local investor with close ties to the Koch Brothers.

Charles and David Koch, who own a conglomeration of businesses and investments through Koch Industries, have reportedly received pledges reaching a combined $100 million at a California conference to defeat Obama, according to The Huffington Post:

"A source who was in the room when the pledges were made told The Huffington Post that, specifically, Charles Koch pledged $40 million and David pledged $20 million.

The semi-annual, invitation-only meeting attracts wealthy donors, Republican politicians and conservative activists. Last year, hundreds of activists gathered outside the walled-off resort to protest the meeting. This year, however, the conference went off quietly."
