Group: Dems Who’ve Taken Fossil Fuel Money Should Return Steyer’s Donations

Power the Future (PTF), a social welfare organization focused on “research that will enrich the national conversation on energy” called on billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer on Wednesday to demand that Democratic candidates who have accepted donations from both Steyer and fossil fuel companies to return Steyer’s donations.

Steyer recently blasted the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for reversing their ban on accepting donations from fossil fuels companies.

However, Steyer, who routinely lambasts fossil fuel companies, has given $32,000 to Democratic candidates who have also accepted donations from fossil fuel companies during the 2018 election cycle.

PTF is calling on Steyer to demand that those candidates, who accepted donations from fossil fuel companies and Steyer, return Steyer’s donations immediately.

“If Tom Steyer has any intellectual honesty, he will demand these Democrats return his campaign contributions immediately, or he will look like a total hypocrite. As the intellectual leader and financial bankroller of the liberal movement, Steyer needs to put his money where his mouth is and live up to his over-the-top rhetoric,” the Executive Director of PTF Daniel Turner said in a statement.

Democrats who have accepted donations from both Steyer and fossil fuel companies include Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV), Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), Rep. Raul Ruiz (D-CA), Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), and Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA).
