The list, published by Mother Jones, cites the names of 40 top donors, including top corporate executives, hedge fund billionaires and longtime Republican financiers.
• Papa John pizza chain founder John Schnatter.
• Kenneth Griffin, chief executive of Chicago-based hedge fund Citadel.
• Debra Waller, chief executive of Jockey International.
The knock against the Koch political donation empire is that members seek to influence elections anonymously.
