The former police commissioner for New York City exposed liberal billionaire George Soros’s “insidious plot” to elect radical leftist district attorneys across the country.
Fox News host Neil Cavuto asked former New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly about the “pent-up frustration that a lot of voters have” due to the lawlessness in many American cities. Kelly drew a direct connection between liberal billionaire George Soros and soft-on-crime district attorneys (DAs) like recently ousted San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin on the June 8 edition of “Your World”: “Boudin — as other DAs — is the product of a very insidious plot on the part of George Soros.”
“We know that [Soros], in a way, has succeeded. Look at the district attorneys in New York, in Chicago, in Los Angeles, of course, San Francisco — they're all George-funded winners of the election,” Kelly told Cavuto. ”What George Soros did was use 40 million dollars to contribute to these elections.”
The Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund found that “Soros has spent more than $40 million on direct campaign spending over the past decade to elect prosecutors.” The report also revealed that the “US currently has at least 75 Soros-Backed social justice prosecutors, supported through campaign dollars and/or Soros-funded progressive infrastructure groups.” [Emphasis added].
“We know that DA races are usually local races,” Kelly added. “He took a million dollars, at least, [to] each of these campaigns, and it made a huge difference. And I believe he's going to continue to do this.”
Kelly explained that Soros has helped elect radical leftist DAs across the country for years. “He started this in 2016,” Kelly noted. “He's contributed through his various organizations to seventy-five elections. We know that at least twenty-six of those supported candidates have won.”
Capital Research Center profiled 23 out of 26 Soros-backed DAs who received a total of “$29 million in funding” through a “personal network of political action committees (PACs) formed specifically to back left-wing DA candidates.”
Among the district attorneys who received funding were Cook County (Ill.) State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx, infamous for dropping charges in the Jussie Smollett case, and Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner. Philadelphia reportedly became the “murder capital of the United States” last July under Krasner’s watch.
