New York billionaire George Soros is leading a campaign to reshape the nation’s criminal justice system -- and targeting with cash four of the 56 district attorney positions in California up for grabs June 5.

In fact, he and other wealthy liberal donors are pouring millions of dollars and liberal groups are offering support to would-be prosecutors who favor lower incarceration rates, crackdowns on police misconduct and changes in a bail system that they argue discriminates against the poor, the Los Angeles Times reported.

"These people who want to create their own social policy are not worthy of the office," former Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley told the newspaper. "If they win in San Diego or Sacramento, L.A. is next."

In San Diego County, a deputy public defender is being financially backed after fighting to keep the accused out of jail. In Sacramento and Alameda counties, candidates are challenging the incumbents. In Contra Costa County, a district attorney earned the support of the consortium of wealthy donors and liberal groups.

Five more candidates in Marin, Riverside, San Bernardino, Stanislaus and Yolo counties are also getting donations, albeit much smaller ones, from some liberal donors.

Noah Phillips, who’s running in Sacramento County, attacked his opponent, who happens to be his boss as well, for failing to ever charge a police officer who shot a civilian. He admitted Soros’ team scripted and paid for his ad on television, while his fundraising efforts were improved following the help from Cari Tuna, senior adviser to Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign.

Soros reportedly spent over $1.5 million on a political action committee to prop up the San Diego County candidacy of Geneviéve Jones-Wright, who attacked policies “criminalizing poverty” and pledged

It would be a big help if the Soros funded future puppets were named. I’m voting absentee in Yolo county, and it seems that Soros has targeted Yolo in his attempt to crush California.

Soros needs to be charged with RICO violations and all his assets seized. His wealth can be redistributed by the government to the needy. That should even please this old communist :)

Doesn’t he realize that California is already a bastion of stupidity? Why does he have to change anything there? The rest of us have pretty much written them off.

California is lost. We’ll get it back when it collapses. We can clean it up, do a remodel and flip it and make a good profit.

Soros may not be the anti-Christ but Soros must be one of his top lieutenants.

Obama, ValJar, Holder, Podesta, Mueller, Comey, and Lynch are a few of his other key helpers.

Does this mean that ONE MAN (Soros) can overcome the GOP? Doesn’t say much about the GOP.

He and a few billionaires are determined to destroy this country. Although this country has been good to them, they nevertheless hate it.

Yes Soros and his ilk are determined to destroy the monetary system in the whole world.

Soros got his start by taking the most successful country on the African continent and manipulated it’s currency to the point that it was virtually worthless.

Nevertheless, he made a boat load of money off of doing so.

It’s all about control, Soros and others like him are working to control all the money so as to make a world with two classes.

(It’s also Biblical. They wish to make the world a cashless society. Already cash transactions have been banned in Venezuela)

The very rich and the very poor.

The poor will be “slaves” to the rich; ie the workers.
