Default IS Dorothy Bush married to the son of a Koch Bro?

today i noted that the Bush's had some of their personal email hacked. the hacker uploaded private photos and emails referencing Bush 41's recent illness. but then i noticed that one of his daughters is Dorothy Walker Bush Koch is married to Robert P. Koch, does anyone know if he is a son of one of the Koch bros? i haven't been able to find any good info on him about any kind of family connections. if he is i wonder why isn't the media saying anything at all about it?

i just saw a blurb on the news about Dorothy Walker Bush Koch's email being hacked but they only referenced her as Dorothy Bush. has anyone else seen her referenced by her married name in the media? i only saw her married name by accident on wiki

Perhaps the media is ignoring her since she is a “private” person. If she was running for public office or made comments in the public domain her family background would be of some interest to some.

Also, if you follow the links from your wikipedia source … her second husband is a Democrat that used to work for Democrats in Congress.

neither she nor her husband are private persons. they are both engaged in public fundraising and on the boards of publicly held

institutions.http://tpj.org/docs/pioneers/pioneers_view.jsp?id=99

Dorothy Bush Koch
Occupation: CEO's spouse
Employer: Wine Institute
Home: Bethesda, MD
George W. Bush’s kid sister, Dorothy Bush Koch, raises money for local charities and for her family’s campaigns. She got married in 1992 at Camp David to Robert “Bobby” Koch, an ex-aide to then-Majority Leader Dick Gephardt and then-Democratic Whip Tony Coehlo (who chaired Al Gore’s 2000 campaign). At the time of the 2000 campaign, Robert Koch was a senior vice president and lobbyist at the Wine Institute, which he joined in 1992. As “Doro” Koch assumed a high-profile role in President Bush’s reelection fundraising in June 2003, this trade group promoted Koch to president and CEO. Representing the California wine industry, the institute lobbies for free trade and to protect millions of corporate-welfare tax dollars that it receives to market its products abroad. Shortly after Robert Koch’s promotion, the Federal Trade Commission issued a report that echoed a longstanding Institute argument that states should not prohibit consumers from buying wine directly from producers on the Internet. In 1999 the Institute’s board recruited two members of the Gallo family, which produced one out of three U.S. wine bottles. The family benefited from the so-called 1986 “Gallo Amendment,” which allowed them to personally dodge $104 million in inheritance taxes.

Wine Institute of California announces Robert P. Koch as President and Chief Executive Officer
http://www.prnewswire.co.uk/news-rel...154058105.html



Koch joined Wine Institute in 1992 as Vice President of Federal Government Relations and became Senior Vice President in 1996. He previously spent nine years on Capitol Hill working for former House Majority Leader Dick Gephardt and former Majority Whip Tony Coelho. Koch is a member of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee for Trade (APAC), and a board member of the National Commission Against Drunk Driving, the Council on American Politics of the George Washington University Graduate School of Political Management, and the California State Society. He also is active in raising funds to find a cure for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Koch received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Government and Politics from the University of Maryland. He is married to Doro Bush Koch and they have four children.
The Board of Directors also announced that Wine Institute has retained John De Luca in the newly created position of Executive Vice Chairman. De Luca served as President and CEO for the last 27 years and will continue as an advisor to Koch and a liaison for the Wine Institute to a number of organisations.
Wine Institute is the public policy advocacy group representing 637 California wineries and affiliated businesses responsible for more than 80 percent of the nation's wine production and 90 percent of U.S. wine exports.

If she was not the sister of George W. Bush you would not care. Perhaps it is time to let go of your hatred of Bush? He has been out of office for over four years and has made it clear he desires no public face.

he is not selling wine. you need to go back and read ore carefully. you don't know a lobby when you see one. from a previous post above:

"Wine Institute is the public policy advocacy group representing 637 California wineries and affiliated businesses responsible for more than 80 percent of the nation's wine production and 90 percent of U.S. wine exports."

Of course, they are a lobby. The lobby for rules dealing with the growing of grapes. The influence the laws about the production of wine. They try to market their client's wine.

The bottom line is they sell wine. They don't push a position concerning gun control or abortion.

Does it really matter that he is married to the sister of a former president? His contact with his former boss in Congress (Gephardt) probable has more influence than his brother-in-law. Gephart is a Washington lobbyist. Bush is retired and out of politics.

no wine lobbies do not sell wine. you need to look at the basic definition of a corporation.

i don't hate George Bush. he is past. i don't think he was a good president but i don't hate him. i'm interested in what is going on today in my gov't so i investigate to find out. the politics of our country isn't a church. i don't have to accept anything on faith without evidence.
