A stunning new report has found that far-left billionaire George Soros has shelled out tens of millions of dollars in order to install progressive district attorneys all across the country.
Analysts with the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund (LELDF) found that Soros, a progressive billionaire and founder of the Open Society Foundations, has invested about $40 million over the past decade to elect dozens of progressive prosecutors, including many in the most populated U.S. cities.
Soros-backed prosecutors represent one-fifth of all Americans, and they hold office in half of the top 50 most populated U.S. cities and counties.
The report further revealed that Soros’ footprint has been found in at least 75 cities throughout the United States.
The push by Soros to install these progressive district attorneys had led to a nationwide increase in criminal activity. Cities with Soros-backed district attorneys are responsible for 40% of crime in the U.S, according to the LELDF.
These radical Soros-backed candidates are known for their support of “social justice” and lax criminal justice reform proposals.
“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,” LELDF President Jason Johnson told The Washington Examiner.
“Over the past decade, George Soros has spent $40 million to elect 75 of his chosen prosecutors. 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,” Johnson added.
Soros-backed DAs are include the likes of George Gascón in Los Angeles, Kim Foxx in Cook County, Illinois, Larry Krasner in Philadelphia, and Alvin Bragg in Manhattan.
According to the LELDF, “Over the past decade, a wave of ‘social justice’ candidates have been elected as the chief prosecutor in jurisdictions across the United States. Most of these prosecutors pursue radical justice policies upon assuming office including eliminating bail, dismissing felony cases, and seeking lenient sentences while creating antagonistic relationships with their public safety partners, especially the police.”
“Crime and violence surged following the election of many of these reform prosecutors. And critically, the rise in most of these prosecutors’ jurisdictions predates the nation-wide 2020 crime spike,” the study adds.
The Soros prosecutors have been so lax on crime, in fact, that the only logical explanation is that the billionaire is intentionally trying to destabilize the U.S. by helping to cause a massive surge in crime.
Meanwhile, some Republicans have caught on to what these radical DAs are doing – calling to remove them from office to preserve “law and order.”
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) says in order to win the war on crime, we must remove every single George Soros-backed prosecutor in the nation.
In May, Cotton called for a renewed effort from the GOP to “Recall, Remove & Replace Every Last Soros Prosecutor.”
“Last year, our nation experienced the largest increase in murder in American history and the largest number of drug overdose deaths ever recorded. This carnage continues today and is not distributed equally,” Cotton observed. “Instead, it is concentrated in cities and localities where radical, left-wing, George Soros progressives have captured state and district attorney offices.”
“These legal arsonists condemn our rule of law as ‘systemically racist’ and have not simply abused prosecutorial discretion, they have embraced prosecutorial nullification. As a result, a contagion of crime has infected virtually every neighborhood under their charge,” he continued.
