Koch-funded veterans group hires Rep. Brat aide

Posted by Keturah Hetrick on March 20, 2018

A small, Koch-family-funded veterans' group has hired Rep. Dave Brat's (R-Va.) communications director.

Juliana Heerschap is now director of policy engagement for Concerned Veterans for America. Before joining Brat's office last year, the Virginia native served as legislative director to ex-Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.).

CV4A, a charity that does not lobby itself, is a part of Americans for Prosperity, the influential right-wing advocacy group that serves as as a primary lobbying outfit to funders David and Charles Koch. CV4A has made news in recent weeks for its push to privatize the Department of Veterans Affairs' health-care system.
