This editorial is biased, slanted, misleading, and a disservice to your readers. Americans have a First Amendment right to speak out on issues of public importance. The Supreme Court didn't “overturn” anything about that right -- quite the opposite, they reaffirmed it. It's astounding that the editorial board at the Chattanooga Times Free Press, itself owned by a privately-held company, would object to other companies speaking out in the identical way that they are. Also, the editorial fails to reveal the fact that groups across the political spectrum contribute to political causes, consistent with the Supreme Court’s ruling.

As for laws concerning voter ID, guns, and abortion, Koch has taken no position on these issues and never has engaged in advocacy on these issue. With regard to ALEC, Koch has been a member of that organization for many years due to its nonpartisan work on economic freedom issues. As explained on www.kochfacts.com, other extremist organizations and media have misrepresented Koch’s involvement in that group.
