Citizen Koch is a wickedly funny and also terrifying look at the state of our democracy.
The LWV/ABC is partnering with the Bay Area Film Society for a screening of Citizen Koch on Saturday November 1st, 2014 at 7 pm at StageNorth in Washburn.
Set against the rise of the Tea Party in the aftermath of the US Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling, a citizen uprising to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker collides with the Tea Party-aligned “Americans for Prosperity,” a group founded and lavishly financed by two of the world’s richest men —David and Charles Koch. As Republican working class voters find themselves in the crosshairs of their own party and its billionaire backers, they are forced to choose sides.
