Alexandria, Virginia—A non-profit’s June report shows that billionaire George Soros has funded at least 75 radical “social justice” prosecutors in America by spending “millions of campaign dollars” supporting “political neophytes” with “zero prosecutorial experience” and “no previous criminal case experience.”
The report issued this month by the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund is titled “Justice For Sale” and examines these prosecutors “route to power, source of funding, and affiliations and allies dedicated to supporting their social justice agenda” and how “candidates were elected to implement an ideological agenda.”
The Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund (LELDF) is a non-profit “dedicated to supporting and defending the law enforcement profession and those law enforcement officers who have devoted their lives to upholding the Constitution and serving the United States and its citizens while enforcing its laws.”
The “Justice For Sale” report states five conclusions:
- The US currently has at least 75 George Soros-Backed social justice prosecutors (at minimum two served in Florida*), supported through campaign dollars and/or Soros-funded progressive infrastructure groups.
- These 75 prosecutors represent more than 1 in 5 Americans or more than 72 million people, including half of America’s 50 most populous cities and counties (which account for over 40 percent of all U.S. homicides).
- From 2018-2021, George Soros spent $13 million on just 10 prosecutors’ races, where his organizations were by far the biggest spender in the race and comprised the majority of the progressive candidate’s campaign spending—as much as 90 percent in some cases.
- To date, George Soros has spent more than $40 million on direct campaign spending over the past decade to elect prosecutors.
- George Soros uses a series of shell organizations, affiliates, and pass-through committees to steer contributions to both candidates and his robust support network for progressive prosecutors, which provide gravitas and perks to preferred prosecutors.
*InfluenceWatch.org as well as FloridaPolitics.com and the Orlando Sentinel have reported on how Monique Worrell has become the second Soros candidate to become state attorney for Orange and Osceola County in the Orlando metro area. She received $1 million from Soros’ The Democracy Alliance. Her predecessor, Aramis Ayala was a “long-shot candidate” elected in 2016 with the help of more than $1.3 million from the Soros’ Florida Safety and Justice Political Action Committee.
Other George Soros-backed organizations include:
- The Tides Center
- Fair and Just Prosecution
- Brennan Center for Justice
- Vera Institute for Justice
- Drug Policy Alliance
- American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
