Salt Lake City, Utah – With $17.5 million each, brothers Charles and David Koch are tied at #24 on Forbes list of the world's richest people.

AFP is one of the heavy hitters behind the tea party movement and the group was co-founded by David. Wednesday, we're talking about the Koch family and the part they're playing in the American politics.
