In a speech Friday night at Americans for Prosperity’s “Defending the American Dream Summit,” former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain provided interesting new details about his family history.

Responding to an article in the New York Times alleging a close connection between him and billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, Cain said he had a “breaking news announcement” about his connection to them.

“This may be a breaking news announcement for the media,” he said to a crowed at the Washington Convention Center. “I am the Koch brothers’ brother from another mother.”
