From THINK PROGRESS:
This weekend, David and Charles Koch, co-owners of the Koch Industries conglomerate of chemical, timber, oil and manufacturing interests, are hosting their twice annual meeting to coordinate strategy and raise funds for the conservative movement. In October, ThinkProgress brought these meetings to light with a memo detailing the last Koch event, held in June, where corporate interests collaborated to help Republicans dominate the election last year. The memo we published showed that the last meeting included a number of wealthy business executives, along with leaders from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Glenn Beck. Previous meetings have featured top Republican politicians and conservative Supreme Court justices [Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas].

From POLITICAL HOTSHEET at CBS NEWS:
During a Sunday appearance on Fox News, Republican strategist Karl Rove fired back at recent accusations that he has “funded” conservative groups responsible for pouring money into nationwide conservative causes, and disputed the validity of statements made by President Obama and the Democratic National Committee.
“The president is completely inaccurate,” Rove said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” of Mr. Obama’s recent statements that Rove had “funded and advised” conservative groups American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS.
Rove went on to slam a recent Democratic ad criticizing his past political contributions, and accused Mr. Obama for having an “enemies list.”
