Billionaire George Soros is a major donor to left-wing causes and gave millions to the Hillary Clinton campaign in addition to bankrolling campaigns on immigration and climate change. He’s now funding democrats running for local prosecutor jobs.
This election cycle, he spent $11 million on these races. Prosecutors are powerful figures. They choose when, whether, and against whom to bring criminal charges.
Soros wants prosecutors who support his globalist agenda. So far, it’s paying off. His chosen candidate won in 10 of 12 races this year.
Morris Overstreet, a former judge who was the first African-American elected to statewide office in Texas since Reconstruction, was one of the beneficiaries. Overstreet received $100,000 from Soros in the race for Harris County district attorney.
But in a rare lost bet for Soros, Overstreet was defeated easily in the Democratic primary in March by Kim Ogg, a white woman from a prominent political family who has practiced law in Harris County, where she was born, for nearly 30 years.
Ogg had condemned the Soros donation to Overstreet intended to defeat her, calling it “a last-minute money dump to try to buy the nomination.” full story
