Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just can’t seem to shake his addiction to mentioning the Koch brothers.
Speaking on the Senate floor Monday, Reid (D-Nev.) once again brought up the billionaire brothers who contribute to conservative candidates in races all across the country. Reid’s latest attack also included his proposal to tag politicians who receive money from the Kochs.

Many Republicans might as well wear Koch insignias.”
After making that statement, Reid tweeted his image of what the Koch-logoed clothing might look like.
As of Tuesday morning, the tweet had been retweeted more than 500 times and received nearly 300 “favorites,” but among the direct replies to Reid, just one tweet was positive:
The rest of the replies either mocked Reid or pointed out the hypocrisy of his demonizing the Koch brothers political donations while his campaigns have accepted money from unions for years.
