Billionaire George Soros is infamous for pouring millions into Democratic causes, small and large. He recently spent $1.7 million to ensure that a Democratic party nominee running for the district attorney’s position in Philadelphia secures the seat, along with backing other Democrats throughout the country.
The Free Beacon reports, “Soros cut a $1,450,000 check on April 28 to the Philadelphia Justice & Public Safety PAC, a super political action committee established on May 5 that lists its address at the D.C. office of the Perkins Coie law firm. Whitney Tymas, who has been involved with a number of Soros PACs, is listed as the PAC’s operator, records show. The PAC’s purpose is to back progressive attorney Larry Krasner, the Democratic nominee for district attorney in Philadelphia.
Soros made a second donation to the Philadelphia Justice & Public Safety PAC on May 23 for $214,000, bringing the total amount that he pushed to the Philadelphia district attorney race to nearly $1.7 million dollars. This is the first time a super PAC has supported a candidate for district attorney in the city.”
Just weeks ago, Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas issued a dire warning about Soros’ activity in Texas. Abbott wrote, that Soros had been pouring funds to ensure that the Democrats secure their base in Texas. “And they don’t plan on stopping there,” Abbott wrote. “Still reeling from nearly a decade of devastating losses in statehouses across the nation as well as in the 2016 presidential election, Democrats in Washington, D.C. are plotting to pour hundreds of millions of dollars in state and local elections across the country,” Abbott stated.
The Washington Examiner uncovered the Democratic Party’s long-game strategy, saying, “With the help of hedge fund billionaire George Soros, the National Democratic Redistricting Committee hopes to wrest control from voters of congressional re-districting in 2021 when booming conservative states such as Texas will gain seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. All for the benefit of their special-interest donors.” And that ‘In 2016, he also reportedly spent nearly $11 million on a dozen local district attorney races, including one in Harris County, Texas. The vast majority of his selected candidates won when their opponents were overwhelmed by the inflow of cash and negative campaigning.”
Beth Grossman, the Republican nominee fighting for the position of district attorney in Philadelphia accused Soros of knowing and caring nothing about the real issues facing Philadelphia residents. Despite This, Soros opens his wallet to all Democratic politicians no matter who they are, or where they are running. Grossman declared, “What really disturbs me is I feel like he’s an outside individual who knows nothing about Philadelphia and it’s specific public safety issues or whatever public safety crisis it’s facing comes in with his agenda and backs a far-left candidate who has never prosecuted a criminal case in his 30 year career as a criminal defense attorney,”
“Everyone is entitled to the best defense that they can get, but this individual, my opponent, has also sued the Philadelphia police department in the city over 75 times and he dislikes law enforcement,” he continued.
Grossman argued that the role of the DA’s office is to “protect the constitutional rights of everybody” and not to conduct a “grand social experiment.” The Republican candidate continued, “So you have that kind of agenda along with George Soros, and suddenly—the role of the DA’s office is not to conduct a grand social experiment, it is to enforce the laws of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania justly and fairly, and to protect the constitutional rights of everybody: victims, witnesses, as well as those accused of crime.”
Soros pointed out, “He [Soros] blows into town—he dumps millions of dollars into this. There are volunteers—I don’t know whether he pays them or where they come from—who come in and try to get people to the polls and pass out literature, and then they leave town. I have concerns, if he gets elected, my opponent, I don’t want us to turn into a Baltimore,” said Grossman. “I don’t want us to turn into a Chicago. It’s really disturbing.”
