A conservative group says it has uncovered a “scandalous” connection among billionaire climate change activist Tom Steyer, the Democratic Party and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who wants to run for governor.
The Energy & Environment Legal Institute said Wednesday it uncovered new documents that add to questions over the growing link between Steyer and the attorney general’s investigation into oil giant Exxon Mobil’s climate change strategy.
The free-market group said it obtained communications that show Steyer’s group working closely with the Democratic Governors Association to put pressure on states to go after “climate deniers” and support Schneiderman’s Exxon probe.
