The great influencer throws around his money to not only sway the tide of the political spectrum in his favor, but to also seemingly subvert the law into working for his ideology by funding certain prosecutors. He has billions of dollars with which to do it, too. To no one’s surprise, that person is billionaire mega-donor to “progressives” and the rest of the far-left, George Soros.
Through his Justice & Public Safety PAC, Soros pumped “nearly $1 million” into two separate prosecutor races in Northern Virginia.
According to the Washington Free Beacon:
Soros used his Justice & Public Safety PAC to push nearly $1 million total to Parisa Dehghani-Tafti, a former defense lawyer who ran in the Arlington County Commonwealth's attorney race against incumbent Democrat Theo Stamos, and Steve Descano, a former Justice Department employee who ran in Fairfax County against longtime incumbent Democrat Ray Morrogh[…]
Tafti and Descano were both at a major money advantage for such a race with the help of Soros, who provided the vast majority of their funds. Virginia was the latest area Soros has injected his money in recent years, a bid to "overhaul" the criminal justice system.
Soros is well known for his contributions to “progressive” candidates. In the 2018 election cycle, Soros Fund Management contributed nearly $19 million to candidates on the left, according to donation tracker opensecrets.org. In 2016, Soros Fund Management contributed over $22 million.
