Will the DSCC return the money?

Koch was hardly the only American company doing business in with Iran. Between 2003 and 2010, the DSCC took at least $343,000 in donations from corporations doing (legal) business with Iran. Those corporate donors are practically a who's who of American business: 3M, General Electric, Honeywell, JP Morgan, and Tyson.

If Koch is to be condemned for doing business with Iran -- in accordance with U.S. laws allowing them to do so -- then perhaps the DSCC should return the $343,000 they've already received from corporations that did likewise.
