Tim Griffin earns a Koch payday

In a battle between billionaires like T. Boone Pickens and the Kochfamily somebody is going to get hurt. But some people also stand to be helped. Interesting story in Politico about Pickens' legislation to provide tax breaks for the gas industry to encourage, for example, gas-powered vehicles. The Kochs oppose it as a market-skewing bill that creates a favored industry. Anyway, the local angle: The Kochs have been spending heavily, including passing out $14,000 to PACs of House members after they dropped their co-sponsorship of the legislation. One of those favored with a Koch payday ...

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman, Senator-elect Tom Cotton and Rep. Tim Griffin sent a letter yesterday to the Secretary of the Army urging him to award the Purple Heart to victims of the June 2009 shooting at the Little Rock recruiting center - Privates William Long and Quinton Ezeagwula - based on criteria approved by Congress in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

The members detail actions and statements by Abdulhakim Muhammad, the man who pled guilty to charges of capital murder and attempted capital murder for the shooting at a Little Rock military recruiting station, that meet the criteria established in NDAA. “Throughout his (2011) trial, Muhammad repeatedly admitted that
