  •  Link to the koch connection? (4+ / 0-)

    All I can find is Invista which was formed by dupont and sold to the kochs, but that was just their textile fibers division.  They sold that to the kochs and the kochs made it worse by branching out into resins and other toxins. dupont has plenty of sins to account for (this, CFCs, genetically modified food, etc. ad infinitum) , but they're still responsible for those sins by themselves. I'm not sure linking them to the kochs as a subsidiary is accurate.

    found other sources that assert a connection between the kochs and dupont beyond invista, but with no sourcing whatsoever for the assertion.  I believe dupont is still an independent corporation and should be accountable on their own.

      and is one of the thirty companies in the main Dow Jones index.

      DuPont, btw, is now a Koch Industries subsidiary.
         DuPont's major shareholders are the huge mutual fund companies; no individual owns a significant piece of it. Anyone who owns a large-cap index fund owns a little piece of DuPont.
