Democrats love to claim that they want big money out of politics. Yet they become silent whenever progressive billionaire George Soros shows up and starts pumping cash into an election.
You have to wonder why he’s so interested in this race for district attorney in Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports:
Billionaire George Soros now a player in Philly DA race
The Democratic primary election for district attorney in Philadelphia, already crowded with seven candidates, added another significant player Tuesday.
Billionaire George Soros has arrived. And he plans to spend a significant chunk of change to support one of the seven candidates, civil-rights attorney Larry Krasner.
A group calling itself Philadelphia Justice and Public Safety filed a political committee registration statement Tuesday — three weeks before the May 16 primary — with the city’s Board of Elections.
The group, as a political action committee, can spend above and beyond the city’s campaign finance limits as long as it does not coordinate efforts with any candidate or campaign.
A media buyer, unaffiliated with any of the campaigns for district attorney, said Philadelphia Justice and Public Safety is listed as spending $280,000 in campaign commercials on broadcast and cable television channels in the city for a week, starting Wednesday.
Krasner called the filing “interesting news” and said he had not heard about it until a call from a reporter.
Do the people of Philadelphia know this race is being influenced by Soros?
