SHOCKING, right?  Via The Politico:

Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer will host Vice President Joe Biden at his San Francisco home May 28 for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser, according to a source familiar with the event’s planning.

It’s the latest indication that Steyer, a vocal opponent of the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline and an outspoken advocate for tackling climate change, is building strong ties to Democrats in Washington.

President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have both made appearances at Steyer-hosted fundraisers in the past year.

[...]

Republicans have criticized Steyer’s growing involvement in politics. They’ve also bashed Reid and other Democrats for attending his fundraisers at the same time that railing against the Koch brothers has become a prominent liberal theme.

A DNC spokesman confirmed the news of the fundraiser.

The Democrat talking point that only Republicans are beholden to “big money donors” and special interests continues to circle right down the toilet.  Not that most in the mainstream media will take notice of it and write about it in any meaningful way, but you knew that already.

Move along here, nothing to see…

  1. When will Steyer get raked over the coals on the floor of the Senate in the same vein as the Koch brothers?
