Billionaire Soros funding reform-minded district attorney candidates
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | May 9, 2018 | By Rachel Swan

Posted on 05/10/2018 1:53:53 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Billionaire philanthropist George Soros has dropped at least $275,000 into district attorney races throughout Northern California, supporting candidates who advocate reduced incarceration and other criminal justice reforms.

Such issues have long been a passion for Soros, who in past years has funded state ballot measures to legalize marijuana and weaken the “three strikes” sentencing law. He’s also tipped district attorney elections in other parts of the country - last year a Soros-backed political action committee helped clinch the win for civil rights attorney Larry Krasner in Philadelphia.

This year, the liberal financier has funneled contributions into the California Justice & Public Safety Political Action Committee, which is paying for campaign mailers and advertisements in Alameda and Contra Costa counties, as well as Sacramento, ahead of the June 5 state primary.

In Alameda County, the committee has spent $131,158 in support of Oakland civil rights attorney Pamela Price, a candidate known for her sharp criticism of police.

He dumped $$$ into the San Antonio DA race and his guy unseated the incumbent. This will accelerate SA’s downward spiral. SA is strategic because of illegal immigration, drug and human trafficking crimes.

That Nazi collaborator is also funding a radical black lives matter Marxist in the San Diego County District Attorney’s race. She had more advertising on the local air waves than any other candidate in any other race. If you turn on the TV or the radio in the San Diego market there is one ad after another for Genivieve Jones-Wright. Where the hell did George Soros find her?

Soros has been banned from many countries. Wouldn’t a simple E.O. take care of this?

Soros is doing REAL damage to us. If DJT doesn’t deal with him and his sons (and he can, under the Patriot Act), he will wreck severe damage to the midterms and in 2020.

Please, President Trump, neutralize Soros asap!

I know he lived in NYC in 56. I suspect they thought he was a typical Hungarian. It was years later he told the damn TRUTH.

Soros, the Jew who hated his own kind, lived here 40 years before he told the truth.

Even as they receive last rites, the Chronicle just won’t stop lying.

“”Such issues have long been a passion for Soros””

That man has no passions except whatever it takes to ruin this country and then they are innumerable. If it’s something that logical people with common sense are FOR, he’s AGAINST and will put his money there! Who on earth does he think he’s fooling? Seems to be those who could take action against him are played for fools!!

This twit soros should be locked up and all his assets confiscated indefinitely. Once convicted his fines should equal his net worth leaving him penniless.
