Leftist billionaire George Soros has plowed a staggering $40 million into his effort to radicalize the U.S. justice system by electing “woke” district attorneys, a new probe has revealed.
So far, Soros has installed progressive prosectors in 75 cities across America.
An investigation by the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund (LELDF) found that Soros’ money has elected dozens of far-left prosecutors over the past decade.
Soros-backed prosecutors now represent one-fifth of all Americans, LELDF analysts found.
The radical billionaire’s district attorneys currently hold office in half of the top 50 most populated U.S. cities and counties.
According to the LELDF, cities with Soros-backed DAs are responsible for 40% of criminal activity in the United States.
Soros-backed candidates are known for their support of “social justice” and lax criminal justice reform proposals.
“Soros is using that campaign money and the hundreds of millions more for supporting organizations to quietly transform the criminal justice system for the worse, promoting dangerous policies and anti-police narratives to advance his radical agenda,” LELDF President Jason Johnson told The Washington Examiner.
“Over the past decade, George Soros has spent $40 million to elect 75 of his chosen prosecutors,” Johnson said.
“In campaigns from Houston and Los Angeles to Philadelphia and Orlando, Soros was the campaign’s biggest spender by far — as much as 90% of the dollars spent in some races.
“Soros isn’t done yet — he’s already spent another million so far this year on his hand-picked district attorneys.”
Soros-backed DAs include such prosecutors as George Gascón in Los Angeles, Kim Foxx in Cook County, Illinois, Larry Krasner in Philadelphia, and Alvin Bragg in Manhattan.
According to the LELDF analysis: “Over the past decade, a wave of ‘social justice’ candidates have been elected as the chief prosecutor in jurisdictions across the United States.
“Most of these prosecutors pursue radical justice policies upon assuming office including eliminating bail, dismissing felony cases, and seeking lenient sentences while creating antagonistic relationships with their public safety partners, especially the police.”
“Crime and violence surged following the election of many of these reform prosecutors,” the study adds.
“And critically, the rise in most of these prosecutors’ jurisdictions predates the nation-wide 2020 crime spike.”
Soros has prioritized reshaping the American criminal justice system over the past decade.
He uses his vast financial resources to support candidates for major district attorney roles that support such policies as reducing penalties for non-violent offenders and rolling back or eliminating cash bail.
Soros typically invests so much money into the campaigns that it’s impossible for other candidates to compete in the small political races.
