Report: Soros Helped Elect 75 ‘Social Justice’ Prosecutors

Political groups which received significant donations from billionaire George Soros helped to elect 75 “social justice” prosecutors in cities across the U.S. which, for the most part, have seen major spikes in crime, according to a recent report from Open Secrets.

The cost for this Soros-led campaign was approximately $40 million.

The 17-page report — which was compiled by the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund (LELDF) — revealed that these Soros-backed prosecutors represent 1 in 5 people living in big cities, which equals around 72 million people and includes nearly half of the 50 most populous cities and counties, where 40% of the nation’s homicides occur.

In a statement to Open Secrets, LELDF President Jason Johnson discussed Soros’ tactics and agenda, and the consequences of electing Soros-backed prosecutors who are known to be lenient on violent crimes, advocates for disarming law-abiding citizens and in favor of defunding the police.

“Soros is using that campaign money and the hundreds of millions more for supporting organizations to quietly transform the criminal justice system for the worse, promoting dangerous policies and anti-police narratives to advance his radical agenda,” he said.

“Over the past decade, George Soros has spent $40 million to elect 75 of his chosen prosecutors,” Johnson added. “In campaigns from Houston and Los Angeles to Philadelphia and Orlando, Soros was the campaign’s biggest spender by far — as much as 90% of the dollars spent in some races. Soros isn’t done yet — he’s already spent another million so far this year on his hand-picked district attorneys.”

The Open Secrets report also discussed Soros-backed attorneys general, revealing a common thread among the candidates: they had little to no administrative experience, but strongly supported social justice causes.

“Traditionally, elections for district attorney have been quiet affairs,” the report states. “Candidates spent very little on their campaigns, instead jockeying for local endorsements and burnishing their legal qualifications for the top job. That changed recently as millions of campaign dollars have flowed into these down ballot contests.”

“The bulk of that lavish spending on advertising and consultants has been done by [or on behalf of] ‘social justice’ candidates,” the report continues.

“In most of these free spending contests, progressive forces proved victorious by either defeating incumbent Democrats or crushing a field of primary contenders,” the report adds. “Strikingly, most of these prosecutors were political neophytes and had zero prosecutorial experience — previously an assumed prerequisite for office. Many have no previous criminal case experience.”

Some of Soros’ most well-known election victors include Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg; Buta Biberaj, the commonwealth attorney of Loudoun County, Virginia; and Chicago prosecutor Kim Foxx, who is famous for being accused of misconduct in the early stages of the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax case.
