Koch network is so big and broad,there’s so many different organizations, universities, think-tanks,grassroots or astroturf organizations,oftentimes you don’t know if an organization you might be paying attention to at state level or local level is a part of the Koch network.”
Many groups that make up the middle part of the network’s integrated strategy, between academics and grassroots agitation, fall under the umbrella of the State Policy Network, a coalition of state-level think tanks.
An SPN document from 2016 lists a more specific goal, to “defund and defang one of our freedom movement’s most powerful opponents, the government unions” and to “deal a major blow to the left’s ability to control government at the state and national levels.”
UnKoch My Campus also brought to light that Koch-adjacent groups have influenced GMU’s law school. A group called the BH Fund, acting as a proxy for the Federalist Society, wielded influence on programs, faculty appointments and students, according to documents released by UnKoch
Leonard Leo,head of the Federalist Society,is also president ofthe BH Fund.The report from UnKoch alleges that the Federalist Society had”taken over”GMU’s law school and that the judicial law clerk program has been re-purposed to help place conservative clerks in judge’s chambers
The Center for Responsive Politics reported last year that Judicial Education Project paid $1.3 million to BH Group LLC, the group that gave $1 million to Trump's inauguration. BH Group was incorporated by Bruce Jacobi, CEO of Cogency Global and counts Leonard Leo as an employee.
The corporation is nearly untraceable beyond an address for a 'virtual office' in Arlington, Va.," McClatchy reported. BH Group has also been paid $750,000 by the Wellspring Committee, a major dark money donor of the Judicial Crisis Network, to do "public relations."
“Leo is directly involved in raising much of the anonymous money the Wellspring Committee brings in every year," the Center for Responsive Politics has reported. Leo is the executive vice president of the Federalist Society, prwatch.org/news/2019/02/1…
