Dueling Headlines, or, Just because Sam Brownback says it, doesn't mean it's so

He's their puppet.
A New Yorker magazine article last month revealed that the Koch brothers have been quietly bankrolling the tea party movement, which has boosted the success of insurgent conservative candidates in several Republican primary races this year. 

Democrats point out that Koch-related interests have given Brownback, a Republican, hundreds of thousands of dollars over his 16-year career, more than any other candidate. They claim that the Kochs may have played a key role in Brownback's most important race — in 1996, when he won a close contest to take Bob Dole's open Senate seat.
