For years, Democrats have been saying they want to get dark money out of politics.
Yet their actions say otherwise.
It seems dark money is OK when it comes from George Soros.
He is connected to a group that is producing ads targeting vulnerable Republicans and urging them to support impeachment.
The Daily Caller reports:
Soros-Linked ‘Dark Money’ Group Is Funding Ads Urging Vulnerable Republicans To Impeach Trump, Records Show
A liberal “dark money” group that received millions of dollars from George Soros’s advocacy network, records show, is behind a seven-figure ad blitz urging vulnerable Republicans in swing districts to support the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
The ads, which were scheduled to air this week on “Fox and Friends” in the Washington, D.C., market and in 13 GOP-held congressional districts, feature military veterans urging Republican representatives to “put country over politics” by holding Trump accountable for “abusing his office and risking national security for his own gain.”
Each of the ads contains a disclosure stating they’re paid for by “Defend American Democracy,” but D.C. business registration documents reveal the group is just one of the many projects of the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a dark money nonprofit that pumped $141 million into liberal causes in 2018 alone, Open Secrets reported.
The Sixteen Thirty Fund reported receiving $52 million from a single anonymous donor in 2018, but as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, it is not required to disclose the identity of its donors.
But other nonprofit organizations are required to disclose if they gave money to the Sixteen Thirty Fund. One of Soros’s primary donation vehicles, the Open Society Policy Center, has given $4.5 million to the fund between 2012 and 2017, according to their Form 990 annual disclosures.
It seems like Soros has his hands in a lot of things that are happening right now, and none of them are good.

You can’t make this incestuous stuff up. Fiona Hill worked with the British spy Christopher Steele who wrote the #BullSchiff dossier used by Dems to smear President @realDonaldTrump and she served on a regional board for George Soros Open Society Institute.https://t.co/dQbYhfJrfW

Have you notice that when Bernie Sanders rails against billionaires, he never mentions Soros?
