They have since apologized.

Court has buffer, but clinics can’t?
The incredible, blatant hypocrisy of the Supreme Court in protecting itself with a football field sized police enforced barrier while disallowing women from in-your-face abuse is sickening. Women can’t have 35 feet to protect them from threatening harassment while a man with an “offensive” T-shirt is arrested for standing on a sidewalk outside the judges’ building. This decision goes hand in hand with decisions preventing voting rights and giving corporations an open door to buying elections.
Thank God for NARAL!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/17/koch-brothers-book_n_5342694.html Just heard an interview on NPR by Terri Gross (Fresh Air) of the author of this explosive book, Mother Jones senior editor Daniel Schulman. Tells us why the Tea Party is "addicted to Koch" from the early funding by the "non-profit" group, "Americans for Prosperity", basically the Koch Political Party.., how father Fred Koch made his fortune in oil in the Soviet Union, helped found the John Birch Society, how Charles Koch left John Birch to found what became the Libertarian Party followed by the Cato Institute..... how these highly educated (including science) these power moguls fund climate change denial propaganda campaigns, how Charles and David Koch have infiltrated higher education, medical research, and more in their quest to rule and control every facet of American society... and much more!
