The billionaire is ready to take out Floridas multi-millionaire governor.
In a nationwide push to fight Republicans who deny the existence of man-made climate change, investor-turned-activist Tom Steyer has founded a Florida political committee, seeded it with $750,000 of his own money and says hell spend far more to help Democrat Charlie Crist defeat Gov. Rick Scott.
Florida Democrats are buzzing about Steyer spending $10 million, which he wont discuss. Republicans say the California Democrat is a phony environmentalist, but they nevertheless worry his financial commitment could be real in Florida.
Its hard to look at the map of the United States and not understand that not only is Florida Ground Zero for climate [change], its the third most-populous state, Steyer said in a sit-down interview Friday with The Miami Herald.

Won’t Charlie Crisp ever go away?
"Free Republic is here to continue fighting for independence and freedom and against the unconstitutional encroachment of ever expanding socialist government...
We believe in the founding principles with all our hearts and mean to defend them to our dying breath..."
Eff this crony capitalist and his boyfriend Limp Wrist Crist
“A FOOL and his money are soon parted”.
Which Party is he a member of this week ?
Let him waste his money, just like Bloomberg does.
I haven’t seen any of his TV commercials, showing him with his “Beard”!
I also have seen John Morgan & family endorsing him, yet.
“Representing the People, Not the Powerful!” John Morgan, BIG backer of ZERO.
Whatever it takes for an ultra-wealthy enviro-Nazi to silence man-made “climate change” deniers.
“Steyer said he no longer invests in coal and that his commitment to addressing climate change has changed his life”
So how much does he have invested in the climate change scam?
A billionaire 1 percenter wants to use his resources to elect democrats. So is the democrat party in the pocket of the billionaires and millionaires?
This Steyer scumbag gave a boatload of money to the punk Terry McAwful and helped him get elected governor of Virginia.
I resent Steyer giving money to candidates in a state where he doesn’t even live.
They always have been, what makes you think it has ever been otherwise? Because they say so?
Skin cancer will get him.
Tom Steyer needs an IRS audit!
I believe the reporting form is 1040X.
Republicans could use these points to campaign. I think they waste a lot of opportunities to define their opponents to the public.
GW is a lie.
Who knew the Koch brothers were triplets?
“investor-turned-activist Tom Steyer has founded a Florida political committee, seeded it with $750,000 of his own money...”
A perfect example of the corporate/government fascist nexis.
Seig heil, Steyer, you Nazi POS.
There’s no guarantee for you that we won’t do American-style Nuremberg trials. Think about it.
Scott needs a Green Party watermelon to run.
Yeah, Crisp worked for Morgans after he was voted out. I guess the Morgans need a useful idiot in Tallahassee.
Berry, you nailed it!
This just shows how much money these fascist creeps plan to make off of this "climate change" scam.
global warming climate change climate disruption matter so much to the very rich? They're insanely lusting to become the first trillionaires and masters of the world.. no matter who actually pays the price. Nothing else matters to them. They are scum and traitors.
Charlie Crist (D-Green Iguana)
Charlie Crist is definitely a John Morgan sock puppet. Of course I don’t think any of the Florida media have ever reported that negatively.
And isn’t it interesting that the liberal Democrats have no problem with evil billionaires spending their money in support of a Democrat candidate but always get free airtime to complain the Koch brothers donating to conservative candidates.
Rick Scott is NO prize but he’s a damn sight better than Charlie crist.
