(National Sentinel) Politics of Disruption: Marxist billionaire and political influence peddler George Soros is pouring money into local races for district attorney, helping to elect far-Left candidates who will be more prone to use their positions to correct what they see has historic social injustices rather than apply the rule of law.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, some candidates he has backed have already won races.
Now, he’s focusing on races in Oregon, which already leans Left:
A longtime consultant to liberal billionaire George Soros is listed on recently filed documents with the state of Oregon related to the formation of a political action committee that appears to be an avenue for Soros to influence yet another district attorney’s race, state records show.
The paperwork was filed with Oregon’s secretary of state’s office in early April to launch the Oregon Law & Justice PAC, which intends to “support candidates advocating for justice.”
Whitney Tymas, an attorney who acts as the treasurer of a number of Soros PACs, is listed as the director, correspondence recipient, and alternate transaction filer for the committee. The address listed for Tymas is the same address as Perkins Coie, a Washington, D.C.-based law firm.
Perkins-Coie is the law firm that hired Fusion GPS, which produced the infamous and unverified “Russia dossier” paid for in large part by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
These and other recent filings indicate that Soros is intent on plans to “overhaul” the U.S. criminal justice system, which, critics say, is really a plan to sow chaos in the justice system.
Soros has been quietly launching super PACs around the country in recent years specifically to fund Left-wing DA candidates. District attorneys are the ones who decide who gets prosecuted for crimes and who does not.
The Washington Free Beacon noted further:
Soros’s game plan varies little state by state: The wealthy financier will set up a PAC, push funds into the PAC, then use the money to provide his candidate of choice with an enormous financial windfall. Once the election is over, Soros refunds himself any excess cash and shuts down the committee.
The amount of money Soros pushes into district attorney races—which typically do not feature enormous campaign expenditures—makes it extremely difficult for the opponents of his preferred candidate to counter.
Last year, for instance, Soros gave $1.7 million to support DA candidate Larry Krasner, who is now Philadelphia’s district attorney. Soros put the funds “into a pop-up committee called the Philadelphia Justice & Public Safety PAC, which was established by Tymas,” the WFB reported.
Krasner, as a private attorney, sued the Philly police department 75 times, representing clients in recent years who are affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement.
At one point during the election, he joked that he had built a career that made him unelectable.
The PAC supporting him was the first one ever created in Philadelphia for a district attorney race.
He beat his Republican opponent by 40 points in the heavily Democratic city, where the Declaration of Independence was signed.
Four days after taking office he purged 31 prosecutors without any explanation. Many were in the homicide division, drug enforcement, and civil asset forfeiture units.
Soros has launched similar operations in Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Ohio, Texas, and Virginia, among other states.
