Campaign Finance Abuser Now Aims for Trump Impeachment
By TBOR Staff
AUBURN, AL- We have previously chronicled the efforts of Tom Steyer, the liberal billionaire who is one of the foremost abusers of the campaign finance system, to buy elections. Now, he aims to spend money to undermine one.
According to Open Secrets, Steyer spent $74 million in the 2014 cycle, $90 million in the 2016 cycle, and already $6 million in the 2018 cycle- all for liberal causes.
In recent days, the mega-donor launched a major effort to impeach President Trump. Steyer announced plans for an 8-figure TV buy and a 7-figure digital buy are already underway.
The campaign, entitled “Need to Impeach” is not a grassroots movement, it’s one funded entirely by the billionaire. With even most liberals, even those who have used extreme rhetoric against Trump, hesitant to impeach, Steyer’s rationale seems no more concrete that one (extremely) wealthy individual’s opinion. His website states:
“Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, a co-author of the Federalist Papers — and an immigrant himself — argued that “high crimes and misdemeanors” could be defined as “abuse or violation of some public trust.” This president has clearly already exceeded these standards. Congress has impeached past presidents for far less.”
At Take Back Our Republic, we have pointed to flaws in the system that allow mega-donors like Steyer to gain excess influence and drown out the voices of everyday Americans. Now, he is seeking to drown out our votes, too.

What do you think? Should Steyer be able to fund this initiative to undermine the will of the people? Or, should our campaign finance system accommodate his desire to be heard — even if it means that he will be heard far louder than you and I?
