Steyer-gate: Billionaire a major supporter of Center for American Progress

Center for American Progress-endorsed Energy Secretary pick nominee Thomas Steyer is also a major financial support of the group.

So Juliet Eilperin wrote a puff piece in today’s WaPo for Steyer, which included an endorsement of Steyer by CAP chief John Podesta, all without disclosing that Podesta is the boss of Eilperin’s husband, Andrew Light.
