California's Proposition 23, which would overturn a set of anti-global warming laws in California, got a million in support from a subsidiary of the notorious Koch Industries, defilers of democracy (as well as larger donations from other oil-related companies).

Quotes, links, and details at my Southern California news and politics blog "City of Angles." David Koch is on the board of trustees of the Reason Foundation, which owns this website.
