Liberal billionaire Georg Soros quietly bought two more elections this week, this time within the state of Virginia. The 88-year old former Nazi collaborator known for backing extremist left-wing candidates successfully ousted two incumbent moderate Democrats within the primary process.
Soros pumped nearly a million dollars into the respective campaigns of progressives Parisa Dehghani-Tafti and Steve Descano.
Dehghani-Tafti received $583,000 to beat Arlington County Commonwealth’s Attorney Theo Stamos, and Descano received $392,000 to oust Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Raymond Morrogh.
Soros used his Justice and Public Safety PAC to boost the two liberal candidates into the winners’ circle.
Remarkably without the Soros cash, Stamos and Morrogh raised only $162,000 and $242,000, respectively, for their entire campaigns.
The money gave Tafti and Descano a decisive financial advantage over their Democratic rivals, regardless of the fact that both progressive candidates lack any significant experience, in fact, the Washington Post reported that the two have never prosecuted a case in a state court, compared to their two incumbent opponents, who have more than 60 years of experience between them.
Nevertheless, Soros money made up for the lack of experience by both candidates.
“We were outspent 3 to 1. Our candidate was in the hospital for nearly a week,” Ben Tribbett, a campaign consultant for Morrogh, told the Post. “This is an election that was bought, not won. We are proud of what we did.”
“I think it is foreboding for local elections because we’re going to have people clamoring to get money from George Soros — that’s what I fear greatly,” Karen Darner, a former state delegate who backed Stamos, told the Post.
That ominous prediction has already come true in Pennsylvania several years ago, when Soros poured nearly $1.5 million into the Philadelphia Justice and Public Safety PAC, which supported candidate Larry Krasner in the Democratic primary. Krasner won by a wide margin.
After his victory, Krasner spoke to reporters and said the Soros cash wouldn’t affect his policies. “I don’t have to pick up the phone for anyone,” Krasner told reporters. “It’s no disrespect to Mr. Soros, whom I have never met, or his organization, but the bottom line is I have held these views for a long time.”
Ben Waxman, a spokesman for Krasner’s campaign, told Fox News, “Larry Krasner has been a civil rights attorney in Philadelphia for over 30 years. He has handled many cases and has a deep amount of criminal justice experience. In addition, he is an activist. He has been doing and saying the same thing for 30 years.”
However, Virginia and Pennsylvania are just two states in a growing number of others. Back in August the liberal billionaire pumped more than $3 million dollars into 7-state races for district attorney within 6-states.
For those who doubt that Soros’ money buys influence read on, aside from supporting and financing Black Lives Matter. Soros is a staunch advocate for changing the criminal justice system by funding the campaigns of like-minded district attorneys throughout America.
In one such instance, Soros poured $500,000 into the Houston primary district attorney’s race in support of Democrat Kim Ogg, who called the influx of Soros cash “a last-minute money dump to try to buy the nomination, which he did. Ogg won the general election, thanks in part to Soros spending an additional 500,000 on an ad campaign in support of Ogg.
Soon after she was sworn in she decriminalized several drug laws that Soros had publicly advocated for. Although it can’t be proven directly that Soros money influences drug policies regarding prosecutions and confections of those elected officials, the likelihood that they’ve given special consideration to their next election and Soros money cannot be discounted.
