Soros Chalks Up Another DA Win After Dropping Nearly $1 Million in Texas Race

George SorosGeorge Soros has effectively purchased another district attorney’s seat.

The left-wing billionaire pumped almost $1 million into a Texas district attorney’s race against a Democratic DA who opposes sanctuary cities, according to campaign filings reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Soros’ preferred candidate, Joe Gonzales, upset incumbent Bexar County DA Nico LaHood in the Democratic primary Tuesday. LaHood conceded after Gonzales jumped up to a sizable lead as votes were counted.

Soros spent $958,000 supporting Gonzales’ cause through a super political action committee, Texas Justice & Public Safety, according to campaign finance records reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The super PAC churned out attack ads against LaHood, accusing him of being racist. LaHood accused Soros of trying to buy the election for Gonzales. Soros’ super PAC spent $897,000 of his money in the final 30 days before the election, campaign finance documents show.

Gonzales is now considered the favorite to win the DA election for Bexar County, which includes the city of San Antonio and is one of Texas’ largest counties. If he wins, Gonzales will join at least 11 progressive lawyers since 2015 who have won district attorney’s seats thanks to massive financial donations from Soros.

Soros has the routine down. He uses powerhouse Democratic law firm Perkins Coie to set up a super PAC named some variant of “Justice & Public Safety.” The super PAC will surface late in a DA race, using the kind of capital typically reserved for a national political race to fund a series of attack ads benefitting Soros’ preferred candidate, who wins almost every time.

The goal is to influence the nation’s criminal justice policies from the ground up by boosting progressive lawyers to victory in DA races around the country. It’s legal and appears to be working.

Soros poured $7 million into 11 district attorneys’ races across the country between 2015 and 2016, The Washington Times found. Soros’ preferred candidate won in nine of the 11 races. Soros repeated the move in two more races in 2017 tracked by The Daily Caller. Soros spent almost $2 million on the two races. His preferred candidate won both times.

Soros spent just under $1.7 million to help Philadelphia attorney Larry Krasner win his city’s DA seat in November. Soros pushed the money through his Philadelphia Justice & Public Safety super PAC. Soros gave the bulk of the donations, $1.45 million, during the primary, boosting Krasner to victory over a crowded Democratic field. Krasner coasted to victory in the general election. He purged 31 prosecutors in his first few days on the job.

The Democratic billionaire poured another $100,000 into the Portsmouth, Virginia, DA race last November. Soros gave the money through a national super PAC called Justice & Public Safety. His preferred candidate, Democratic incumbent Stephanie Morales, coasted to victory. Remarkably, Soros’ investment in the race received no media coverage until after the voters had cast their ballots.

Soros is also funding third-party organizations, which are, in turn, targeting DA races in the 2018 elections. Soros-funded groups, including the ACLU, are making local DA races a national cause for progressives, which has tilted the playing field in favor of progressive lawyers. Soros’ Open Society Foundations gave the ACLU a $50 million grant in 2014 to fight mass incarceration.

In 2018, the ACLU is “planning voter education and outreach campaigns in district attorney races in California, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Vermont and possibly North Carolina and Missouri,” McClatchy reports.

The Soros-funded Color of Change PAC is also targeting DA races and seeks to mobilize black voters in favor of progressive candidates.

I sure wish we could. I’ve read that he has dual citizenship, so hope we can get rid of him. The democrats would oppose it though.

I’ve heard George Soros has a dual citizenship. If so, deport him from our country.

Our government has the resources to get rid of Soros. It is the ultimate non politically correct task. Enforce the laws of the land or create new ones if needed. Why after being refused by several countries was he welcomed here. Could it be greedy politicians selling us out? Get him out and cease all assets. We need elected officials with the will and ba_ _ s to get it done. All comments offered are great. Citizens are speaking up. We need candidates who listen, hold and guard our values.

And we thought the Freemasons and the Illuminati would have to spend years infiltrating into our social, government and ecclesiastical institutions before they could have their day. Soros shows there is a short cut to achieving the same ends ! And the devil has plenty of it!

Perkins Coie is the law firm embroiled in the fake dossier against President trump which is now under investigation by the DOJ. Soros and any connections or organizations that he funds should be investigated. They are anti-American and must be stopped!!

Isn’t George Soros one of those
Millionaires and Billionaires that
Bernie Sanders and the Lefties and Dems like to constantly rant about or is
George the Right kind of Billionaire
Do you think Pelosi and Schumer would want to take away any tax cuts that Soros might have benefitted from.
Do you think that Adam Pencil Neck Schiftty would bother to investigate any Soros election meddling activities
Do you think anyone in the media even know who this guy is.

Let SOROS spend his money. What good will that do him, with President Donald Trump and DOJ Jeff Sessions suing California ( other states better take heed), and will win. Same way Barack Obama sent Lopez to Arizona on same thing, and Courts approved their actions. Federal Law governs immigration, and all that ties to it. And Criminals are being removed from all states, or areas, but with difficulty when the state opposes them. But a Civil war was fought in mid-1800s to deny states splitting away from the federal law, and our Constitution. Governors and Judicial need to study Constitution a bit more, and realize this war has already been fought, killing a lot of people to prove the point. We are the United States of America, now the of separate countries (state designated).

There are a great many people in this country, I believe a solid majority, who understand how purely evil and un-American George Soros is. So his involvement in this and other political campaigns should be very widely publicized.

Soros is also looking at Clerk race (control the vote count. Ran a candidate in Detroit who lost

Time for Texans to remember the Alamo! Why do we allow persons living in another state to get involved in other internal states’ business? Why is George Soros allowed to pump millions and sometimes billions into campaigns and Dinesh D’Souza ended up with serving time for exceeding his $2700 by giving $2700 to a friend so he could fulfill his desire to contribute as well? We need to redo our campaign donation law to cover evil mad men like Soros so they can wear orange as they well deserve with the accompanying wrist bands, ankle chains, and chain belt. Mr. Soros is long overdue at Club Fed in Canyon City, CO. We need a law preventing carpetbagger politics, and donors.

I have been saying/asking the same thing for years now..if a person doesn’t live in the state they shouldn’t be able to donate money to any candidate in any state other than the one they live in. It is polluting the “pond” without having to bear any of the negative repercussions. Keep your stinkin thinkin where YOU live and stay out of my home…

How long is this going to continue before the whole country is owned and in the pocket of SOROS? Once he ownes all the politicians, its just a matter of time before he forces this country to crown him KING!!! And guarantee that anyone who tries to stop him will be persecuted or maybe just end up missing!!! This is what tyranny looks like and dictator wanna bes do!!! Some of you with legal minds…how do we stop this?

I surely hope he does not last long. However, he has sons to follow in his footsteps much like the succession we saw in North Korea, so things may not improve much when he is in the ground.

Why is America allowing this terrorist (Soros) to get away with such corruption using fake groups to laundered his money
to buy candidates for his NWO agenda. This happened here in Az. We lost a state senate race to already in place most corrupt
senator owned by Soros.

This is very scary!. Wake up Conservatives and find a way to let ALL people of ALL races know what George Soros stands for. From what I read and understand, he doesn’t believe in sovereign nations. He believes he should be the one telling us all how to live our lives.

He is a puppet of the Rothschilds and Rockefellers who want power over the world and they are doing it through the New World Order. Soros’ mentor was one of the Rothschilds.
