David Koch, Billionaire Industrialist And Republican Mega Donor, Dies Aged 79
David Koch, one half of the double act of the billionaire Koch brothers who used their vast wealth as energy tycoons to transform rightwing politics in America with a relentless drive towards free market and libertarian ideals, has died aged 79.
News of his death was first announced by Jane Mayer, the New Yorker writer whose 2016 book Dark Money delved into the shadowy dealings of the brothers, who have become liberal bete noires.
