We hear periodically about the wicked Koch brothers, who fund conservative causes.
However, on the liberal side, George Soros, Tom Steyer, and Michael Bloomberg are just three of the enormously wealthy people who support liberal causes with millions in donations. I believe Tom Steyer, of San Francisco, virtually bought our last county council election. It is infuriating to have a person who does not even live in our state so heavily influencing local affairs. The Koch brothers do not come anywhere near the manipulation of these heavy hitters.
It is unfortunate that big money can swing elections, but let’s be realistic about who is doing what.
