2009: Chuck Schumer Thanks 'Un-American' Koch Brothers for Campaign Contribution | NewsBusters: "Remember the extreme discomfort Senator Chuck Schumer displayed recently when pressed by Joe Scarborough on MSNBC's Morning Joe as to whether he agreed with Harry Reid's description of the Koch brothers as "un-American?" After much evasion, Schumer finally agreed with Reid that the Koch brothers were un-American due to the political ads they are running.
It now turns out that Schumer's uneasiness with calling the Koch brothers "un-American" didn't have as much to do with casting aspersions upon their character as it had to do with something in his past that he probably knew would expose him as a hypocrite. And that something was a 2009 letter from Schumer thanking the Koch brothers political organization, KOCHPAC, for a contribution to his campaign."
