The Sinking Ship Cato

In a response to a statement from Charles Koch, Cato Chairman Robert Levy provides some behind the scenes info on the sinking ship Cato:
Yes, the Kochs proposed a standstill agreement that Cato rejected because the status quo could not be maintained. Too many key people had learned of the looming problem. Several of Cato’s largest donors had announced they would discontinue their donations until it became clear that the Kochs would not control Cato. A number of Cato benefactors said they would change their wills to eliminate Cato as a beneficiary if Koch dominance was an ongoing threat. Essential employees had expressed their intent to leave Cato unless the governance issue could be resolved in a timely manner.

  1. I doubt the K-bro's care about the wills' of other donors.
