A new online advertising campaign kicked off this week for the Defending The American Dream Summit to be held in Columbus, Ohio this August. The event is sponsored by the Koch Brother-funded group Americans For Prosperity (AFP).

It looks like he is still banned from all Koch Brothers’ events for acting like a jerk to big Republican donor Randy Kendrick, wife of the owner of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
