(Bloomberg) -- Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmentalist and Democratic mega donor, said he’s heading to the heart of New York City for the next step of his $20 million ad campaign urging the impeachment of President Donald Trump. “We’re putting a couple of large billboards in Times Square calling for the impeachment of the president,” Steyer said Monday in an interview. “We legitimately feel that this is the huge issue in front of the American people that no one is standing up for what the overwhelming number of Americans think.” The digital billboards, unveiled Monday, will be on display ten minutes every hour through New Years’ Eve, according to Need to Impeach, the political group founded by Steyer.
Sid Patel encountered the problem with his minivan while driving on a busy highway near San Francisco. Traveling at 70 mph, the new Chrysler Pacifica suddenly shut off. “It just died,” recalled Patel, a physician from Menlo Park. “I had no electrical power, no power steering.” As the minivan slowed to a crawl, and other cars whizzed by, he edged over to get to the shoulder on the right. “A semi truck was coming, and he laid on the horn and swerved out and barely missed me,” Patel said. That experience two months ago was not an isolated occurrence.
