Romney Fundraiser in Koch’s Southampton Home Draws Protest

Protesters unfurled a “Koch Kills” banner and shouted “shame on you” as wealthy donors to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney rounded a corner in Range Rovers, Denalis and other luxury vehicles on their way to a fundraiser at the Southampton, New York beach house of David Koch, an energy billionaire.

Details about yesterday’s $50,000 per-person dinner were spare. Brothers David and Charles Koch closely guard their privacy and prefer to spend their political dollars through non-profit groups that don’t disclose their donors -- even as they’ve publicly stated a desire to oust President Barack Obama.
