The left wing love to demonise the Koch brothers and any one else who puts their own hands into their own pockets for something they believe in.
When their own billionaires do it that is some sort of heroic act, and when you consider that socialists generally only like to spend other peoples money you can understand why it is a small miracle when they spend their own.
Still the demonisation of right wing funders continues while tame millionaires and billionaires on the left are hailed as the new messiahs.
One such person is Tom Steyer who blew $74 million pouring money onto campaigns of those who supported action on climate change.
Though Harry Reid and his merry band of hypocritical Democrats spent the months leading up to the midterm elections ranting and raving about the evils of rich Republican donors like the Koch Brothers, the midterms single largest donor was liberal billionaire Tom Steyer who vowed to shovel money to candidates who would work to address supposed climate change.
Steyer spent $74 million on Tuesdayâ€™s elections and sifting through the Democratic carnage, it appears that Steyer has little to show for his vast expense.
Nearly $67 million was pushed to NextGen Climate Action, Steyerâ€™s super PAC. Though Democrats have postured as if donor money was the single greatest threat to our election process, none seemed to take issue with Steyerâ€™s role as financier of global warming alarmist candidates.
In Colorado, Steyer spent $7 million on Democrat Sen. Mark Udall who ended up losing to Republican Cory Gardner.
In Iowa, Steyer blew-through $4.6 million against Republican Joni Ernst and spent $781,327 bankrolling Democrat Rep. Bruce Braley. Ernst won the Iowa Senate seat, becoming the first female Senator from the State of Iowa.
However, beyond just simply candidates, Steyer spent copious amounts of money crusading to make climate change/global warming/global cooling/weather a high-profile issue in the midterm elections that, historically, have served as a referendum on the job performance of the president and the overall direction of the nation.
