The Center to Protect Patient Rights and Americans for Responsible Leadership - run by Sean Noble, Arizona-based, and with ties to controversial conservative funders (Koch Industries and the Koch brothers) - are apparently under the grand jury microscope after being the subject of a California Supreme Court decision last fall.
ARL also spent $1.5 million in 2012 successfully opposing two Arizona ballot measures - $975,000 opposing renewing the one-cent sales tax, and $575,000 defeating the top-two primary measure.
The Daily Beast reports that "the widening probe" has some "Koch allies" and conservative operatives worried, which one operative described as being "very puckered up."
