Far left billionaire George Soros has been using his wealth to influence far left candidates in district attorney races in the U.S. for the last couple of years. Now he is pumping cash into a prosecutor race in Virginia.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Soros Spends $1 Million on VA Prosecutor Races
Liberal billionaire George Soros has continued his bid to “overhaul” the criminal justice system in the United States by pouring nearly $1 million into local Virginia prosecutor races to prop up far-left candidates.
Soros’s most recent round of donations include $580,000 to Parisa Dehghani-Tafti, a candidate for Arlington County commonwealth’s attorney, and almost $400,000 to Steve Descana, a Fairfax County commonwealth’s attorney candidate, for their June 11 primaries.
Soros pushed the contributions to Dehghani-Tafti and Descana from his Justice & Public Safety PAC, a committee used to fund local races across the country that could make an impact on the criminal justice system. The donations represent an overwhelming majority of what both candidates have raised, the Washington Post reports.
Soros, who has quietly flooded local district attorney and prosecutor races for some time now, puts his preferred candidates at a major money advantage for such a race. Soros typically sets up a “pop up” PAC in states where the races are taking place in order to push the money in to back their candidacy’s. At the conclusion of the race, any remaining money in the PAC’s coffers is refunded and the PAC is often shut down.
Soros is playing the long game here. He is obviously hoping that some of these candidates will win and then run for higher offices.

Soros PAC Pumps Almost $1M Into Virginia Prosecutor Races
The Justice and Public Safety PAC funded by liberal billionaire George Soros has pumped nearly $1 million into the campaigns of two Democrat campaigns for prosecutor positions in Virginia in his continuing bid to overhaul the United States’ justice system.
The PAC has donated $580,000 to Parisa Dehghani-Tafti, a candidate for commonwealth attorney in Arlington County and nearly $400,000 to Fairfax County candidate Steve Descana for their Tuesday primaries, reports The Washington Post. The donations mark the largest contributions in the races to date.
Keep this in mind the next time someone on the left says they want big money out of politics.
It’s just projection.
