While these two modern-day rogues have deviously shown how elections can be manipulated, helped create a radical extremist group, despoiled a number of ecosystems and are hell-bent on demonizing the current leader of the free world -- the Koch brothers run one of the largest U.S.companies (bigger than Coke), but one that most folks never heard of.
