House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was rendered speechless when questioned about her connection – and possible favors – to Democratic mega-donor Tom Steyer.
Conservative journalist and author Jason Mettera approached Pelosi and asked her about a San Francisco subway project that helped Steyer pocket a fortune.
Mattera said Pelosi steered $1 billion in taxpayer funds to the project knowing that Steyer would benefit, but never disclosed the information, reported by the Washington Free Beacon.
“Did you secure a billion dollars for San Francisco’s light rail project knowing it would benefit Tom Steyer’s investment?” Mattera asked her.
Pelosi dodged Mattera heading toward an elevator, saying “I know your deal. You asked for the autograph.”
Mattera recently released “Crapitalism: Liberals Who Make Millions Swiping Your Tax Dollars” and has made several videos that show him approaching lawmakers and public officials with pointed questions.
