What do Charles and David Koch, brothers who run the Kansas-based Koch Industries, have to do with Wisconsin's budget battle?
Almost nothing, unless you occupy the left wing of the political spectrum. There, you'll find a group of bloggers and commentators who are fixated on pinning the unrest in Wisconsin, and plenty of other supposedly terrible things happening in the country, on these two businessmen.

UpShe, Union DUES are used to fight/play politics, legislative lobbying, etc.... I think it is relevant. "Union members may have little to a great deal of say over the level of dues, what dues are used for, and how often dues are collected"..... Even when they are used to PAY non-union members to hold signs and protest.... Unions+Politics= Corrupt. The workers are merely pawns to the Union leaders.
