Soros is at it again throwing his money around and attempting to control political parties. This time he is hoping to reshape the country’s criminal justice system.
Soros thinks he can do so by dumping $1.8 billion into four of the 56 district attorney positions in California up for grabs June 5th. This is precisely the same kind of tactic he used to grab control of attorney generals in varying conditions.
Soros is not the only one. Wealthy advanced liberal donors will also be putting millions of dollars in these races. Liberal groups are offering their support to prospective prosecutors who favor lower incarceration rates, crackdowns on police misconduct and changes in a bail system that they assert discriminates against the poor, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“These people who want to make their own social policy aren’t worthy of their workplace,” former Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley told the paper. “If they win in San Diego or Sacramento, L.A. is ” You mean the city at which the Mexican mafia runs the prisons? That city?
Take for instance San Diego County. A deputy public defender is being financially endorsed after doing everything he could to keep the accused out of jail. In Sacramento and Alameda counties, candidates are challenging the incumbents.
In Contra Costa County, a district lawyer earned the support of this consortium of wealthy donors and liberal groups. Marxists are lining up with their checkbooks to get a piece of the DA’s office. They are far smaller ones though, but nevertheless from liberal donors.
Noah Phillips, who is operating in Sacramento County, assaulted his boss, who’s also his opponent. He states that he failed to ever charge a police officer who shot a civilian. Here’s the kicker, he flatly admits that Soros’ team scripted and paid for his advertisement on tv, while his fundraising efforts were assisted by Cari Tuna, senior advisor to Bernie Sanders’ presidential effort.
“In total, Soros’ spending reached almost $3 million this week on races for district attorney positions. Such big cash infusions and support for liberal groups are all critical for contenders since most elections are limited by the 800 individual contribution limitation, leaving most campaigns scrambling for money and relying on unpaid volunteers”
“The flows of cash stay unclear as national legislation permit nonprofit advocacy groups hide the source of their funding and are required to provide just a summary of the spending.”
“Jones-Wright’s competition, profession prosecutor Summer Stephan, has yet to match the cash donors invested against her effort. Her $1.1 million support came mostly from police unions and other prosecutors, the Times reported.”
But Jones-Wright dismissed the alarmist tone, stating the financing only provides voice to minorities and poor men and women that are left behind in prosecutor races”
“I really like it!” She said in a recent design, according to the Times. “If he didn’t have an interest in this campaign, it would be a much more uneven playing field.”
Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley is up for re-election now around. She was shocked to find out that she was on Soros’ hit record to be ousted.
Especially since she’s a registered Democrat and has earned endorsements from U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA along with other organized labor and Democratic groups. For some reason, she is being savaged from the left in California.
Her competitor, civil rights attorney Pamela Price, promises to end this policies and blasted O’Malley to be supported by law enforcement teams. Cops are the bad men in the world of Soros.
Wealthy innovative donors will also be backing Diana Becton in Contra Costa County. She was appointed district attorney of the county after her predecessor was forced to resign amid a political corruption scandal.
Her challenger, a veteran prosecutor, slammed the support from the wealthy, saying”billionaires who reportedly think Contra Costa’s public safety is available” That about sums it up, do not you believe?
As the Los Angeles Times pointed out, in most district attorney elections, the campaign playbook is apparent: Win over the regional cops and talk tough on crime. But in California this season, the strategy is being flipped on its head. Support the authorities and they want you gone.
