Yep! :) The article I

Yep! :) The article I referenced is from 2010... but even then, it said they gave hundreds of millions of dollars "to thirty-four political and policy organizations, three of which they founded, and several of which they direct. The Kochs and their company have given additional millions to political campaigns, advocacy groups, and lobbyists."

As far as having a bad reputation... it looks like a lot of it stems from them supporting libertarian ideas. And for not going along with environmental issues.
