When the Koch brothers hold their biannual strategy session with top conservatives in Vail, Colorado this weekend, they’ll be met by progressive demonstrators from various groups demanding more transparency in campaign finance. Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) is one of the few known particpants at this weekend’s meeting, but previous Koch retreats have including top lawmakers like House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), top operatives like U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donahue, and conservative media figures like Glenn Beck, among many others. Last October’s secret meeting in Palm Springs, California attracted hundreds of protesters.
