With voters in San Francisco having recalled controversial prosecutor Chesa Boudin this week, critics are turning to other anti-bail, anti-jail DAs funded by liberal billionaire George Soros and his groups for ousters.
Topping that list are Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, Steve Descano of Fairfax County, Virginia, and Buta Biberaj in Loudoun County, Virginia.
Each has been at the center of a handful of controversial decisions angering voters and drawing attention to their support for liberal policies pushed by megadonor Soros, including no-bail releases and ignoring charges filed by police.
They are also the focus of a new report critical of Soros and his funding of first-time prosecutors just filed by the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund. It said that Soros overall has spent $40 million to install 75 liberal “social justice” district attorneys, many of whom are “political neophytes” with “zero prosecutorial experience.”
