Billionaires David and Charles Koch, who have spent hundreds of millions of dollars helping Republicans, are suing to stop the “grotesque” backlash they’d face from being forced to disclose donors to their nonprofit group.
California Attorney General Kamala Harris, the target of their lawsuit, says she isn’t trying to expose contributors to the Kochs’ Americans for Prosperity Foundation. The state is required by law to collect the information and also to keep it secret, according to her spokesman.
The Kochs accuse Harris of violating free speech rights protecting anonymous donations by attempting to force nonprofit groups to disclose a federal tax form identifying donors. The brothers said death threats that are “serious and often horrific” lead them to fear that revealing the donations will put them and their families at risk.
