Steyer suffers from Al Gore syndrome, no media. He down sized to a soccer mom van after his trip to Colorado.
Tom Steyer, billionaire environmental and political activist, told members of the Green Alliance here Friday he plans to remain involved in politics for years to come.
In what ways he intended to remain involved were unclear, at least to the public. The media was not allowed in.
Just before stepping inside, Steyer refused to answer a Watchdog.org question about New Hampshire’s Democrat U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s opposition to a carbon tax. During a debate Thursday night with Republican challenger Scott Brown, Shaheen said, “I have never supported a national energy tax.”
Steyer, by the way, arrived at the conference in a Chrysler Town & Country, a minivan more environmentally friendly than the Chevrolet Suburban that carried him and Gov. Martin O’Malley to a conference in New Orleans earlier this month, as Watchdog.org previously reported.
After the event, Steyer refused to answer a question about NextGen’s $239,000 donation to NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado’s Independent Expenditure Committee, responsible for the much-derided ad attacking Republican U.S. Senate candidate Corey Gardner over birth control.
“If Cory Gardner gets his way, you better stock up on condoms,” says a female narrator in the ad.
