    Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer, who has been pushing for President Donald Trump's impeachment and recently spent $3 million to register Latino voters, also is working hard this week to resuscitate a California state bill that would end the process of demanding thousands of dollars in cash bail from suspected criminals.

    NextGen America, Steyer's flagship environmental advocacy firm and political action committee, has paid to sponsor Politico's California "Playbook" morning newsletter of top headlines every day this week.

    Steyer is using the California Playbook sponsorship to promote a special Sacramento screening of 13th, a documentary film on racism in the criminal justice system. The title of the film is a reference to the 13th Amendment, which freed slaves and prohibited slavery.

    At the screening, Steyer will also participate in a panel of criminal justice reform experts that will discuss how "we can fix California's broken money bail system," according to the message running each day in the California Playbook.

    NJ already does this. It's working out just about how you'd think.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.
