A top House Democrat to whom billionaire liberal Tom Steyer has donated campaign funds steered more than a billion dollars to an infrastructure project that benefitted his hedge fund.

That hedge fund, Farallon Capital Management, bought up large plots of real estate in San Francisco’s burgeoning Mission Bay neighborhood in 2004. The area is now booming and Farallon has sold most of its property there.

Steyer, who founded and led Farallon until late 2012, has used his fortune to elect Democratic senators and governors. He has pledged to spend $50 million of his own money in 2014 and to raise another $50 million.

Among the beneficiaries of his political largesse is House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.). ""We want to support Nancy as much as we can," Steyer said in an interview last year.

Pelosi, who did not respond to requests for comment, has also supported Steyer, though with less fanfare.

Over the past decade, she has steered federal subsidies to a light rail project designed to stimulate commercial and residential growth in Mission Bay. Experts say the project swelled real estate values in the area.

Higinbotham has been making toys since he retired in the early 90s and has given hundreds of toys to “Gifts for Kids of Fayette County” for years.

Gifts For Kids is operated by the PA State Police.

Last year Higinbotham told the Herald Standard in Uniontown, “I love it. I don’t play Santa Claus, but I give the toys to them, and they can distribute them.’’
