This is on top of the Soros plan
– to take over the state Sec of State elections
– which supervise elections
Remember: Money influencing politics is really bad except when they do it.
Liberal billionaire George Soros is flooding Virginia with hundreds of thousands of dollars in a last-minute effort to support Democratic prosecutors on the ballot on Nov. 5. The money is part of a liberal effort to reshape the state’s criminal justice system: Progressive Democrats in several races have committed to reforms focused on reducing felony convictions.
Soros’s targeted candidates have expressed opposition to the death penalty and prosecuting marijuana possession and seek to reduce incarceration rates by bringing lower-level charges. The billionaire’s contributions to the candidates in all but one case are by far the largest they have received for their races.
Among the candidates Soros is lavishing with cash is Buta Biberaj, the Democrat running for commonwealth’s attorney in Loudoun County, Va., who received a $260,000 contribution and $3,773 in digital ad productions on Oct. 29 from the Justice and Public Safety PAC, a federal political action committee financed by Soros. The PAC disbursed an additional $337,546 in additional funds for direct ad buys, mail, literature, postage, and polling from mid to late October, filings show. Biberaj, a defense attorney and substitute judge, has advocated for reducing incarceration by bringing lower-level charges.
Soros’s committee also recently sent a $5,000 donation to Albemarle County commonwealth’s attorney candidate Jim Hingeley, a lawyer whose campaign has also centered on using misdemeanor-level charges to lower incarceration rates.
Biberaj’s campaign did not respond to an inquiry on the money. Hingeley’s campaign could not be reached for comment.
The new contributions come on the heels of the $1 million the financier sent earlier this year to Parisa Dehghani-Tafti, a candidate for Arlington County commonwealth’s attorney, and Steve Descana, a Fairfax County commonwealth’s attorney candidate. Descana has expressed interest in putting together a coalition of progressive prosecutors to lobby for legislation if they are elected in a wave.
Democrats have launched a multi-state effort in courts across the nation seeking to tinker with the rules of the 2020 election to help oust President Donald Trump from the White House. These lawsuits are the latest in a longstanding push to use the courts to alter election rules, all in the name of “civil rights.” The lawsuits are funded by dark money sources, and not-so-dark money sources such as George Soros’ Open Society Institute.
Recently launched lawsuits in North Carolina, Texas, and Michigan seek to constitutionalize small election administration changes and have been filed by Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, Marc Elias at Perkins Coie.
In North Carolina, the North Carolina Democratic Party is challenging a number of state laws designed to promote the integrity of elections and make election administration more efficient. The lawsuit alleges that black voters particularly like to vote early ahead of Election Day and therefore any restrictions on their ability to do so violate the rights of black voters under the North Carolina state constitution.
