Is your senator a Koch manservant?

He is if you live in Wisconsin, Florida, Utah, Idaho or Oklahoma. ThinkProgress reports that five U.S. senators from those states received perfect scores from the Benedict Arnold Koch brothers front group, Americans for Iranian Prosperity.
The Koch Five are Sens. Tom Coburn (R-OK), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Ron Johnson (R-WI), who have received a combined $187,400 in campaign contributions from the Koch empire.
If you live in Wisconsin, you're doubly damned because of Koch whore Gov. Scott Walker's affinity for the treasonous duo. (And speaking of scorecards, PolitiFact has called 27 of 39 statements as "False," "Mostly False" or "Pants on Fire." Guess his Baptist preacher father never taught him about that all-important IX Commandment.)

Writes a commenter to the ThinkProgress post,
...they have a major personal interest and vendetta against Wisconsin. Wisconsin fined them for not repairing leaking in oil lines running across the state, and illegally dumping sludge from their paper industry in the north in the state's waterways, and they are GOING TO GET US BACK!!! That's just the kind of b*tards they are.
