The controversy over Brave New Films' film accusing the Koch brothers of bankrolling the 2009 Wake County school board elections is heating up tonight.
Brave New Foundation, a sister entity of Brave New Films, released a statement tonight defending the video and refusing Americans for Prosperity's demand that they retract the video. The NC chapter of AFP sent out its own statement tonight from Perry Woods, one of the people interviewed in the film, denying that AFP and the Koch brothers were involved in the election.
In Brave New Foundation's statement, the California-based liberal group says the conservative AFP "is trying to back-peddle and disassociate its involvement to re-segregate public schools."
