Koch Brother Buys the Right to Interfere in Faculty Hiring at Florida State University

Kris Hundley, The St. Petersburg Times: "A conservative billionaire who opposes government meddling in business has bought a rare commodity: the right to interfere in faculty hiring at a publicly funded university. A foundation bankrolled by Libertarian businessman Charles G. Koch has pledged $1.5 million for positions in Florida State University's economics department. In return, his representatives get to screen and sign off on any hires for a new program promoting 'political economy and free enterprise.'"

The Kochs already have our legislature and our governor. Might as well colonize the ivory tower. These guys must be stopped.
