(DCWatchdog.com) – The District Attorney candidates backed by leftist billionaire George Soros in the 2022 midterm elections have all won their seats, according to a report.
According to a report by Fox News, the billionaire financier has supported progressivist DA candidates in three different US states – Iowa, Maine, and Texas.
The Soros candidate review only looked into state candidates, meaning that more of Soros’s preferred bidders may have won their races.
The report identified at least four state prosecutor candidates nationwide, who were on the ballot in Tuesday’s midterms, and have received Soros campaign funding.
Those include two DAs previously backed by Soros and two newcomers – all four of them won their November races.
The report laid out Soros’ “district attorney operation,” under which his treasurer Whitney Tymas “sets up “pop-up” political action committees in states where he targets the prosecutor races.”
Once the PACs are established, the progressivist billionaire lavishly fills them with money as they typically “spend hundreds of thousands of dollars” to support his DA picks.
After the elections are over, the “pop-up” PACs are usually dissolved.
Tymas has also set up city-level PACs in certain cases – for instance, to back Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner.
Among the Soros-backed DA candidates in the midterms, Kimberly Graham in Iowa received over $300,000 in Soros money for the Democratic primary. On Tuesday, she beat Republican candidate Allan Richards by 14 points.
In Maine, DA candidate Jackie Sartoris also received $300,000 from Soros through a PAC for the Democratic primary, which she won. No Republican or independent challenged her, so she got elected as a shoo-in.
In Texas, Bexar County District Attorney Joe Gonzalez and Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot, both of whom had been backed by Soros before, received hundreds of thousands of dollars for the November election.
They defeated Republican challengers Marc LaHood and Faith Johnson, respectively.
Soros has emphasized the role of district attorneys in reforming the US criminal justice system along progressivist lines.
He has already bankrolled dozens of far-left DAs, including George Gascon in Los Angeles, Kim Foxx in Chicago, and Kim Gardner in St. Louis.
In 2020, the network of his Open Society Foundation poured $70 million into local efforts for progressivist criminal justice reform, which was part of a $220 million “racial equality” package.
