George Soros Trying to Swing Vote in San Diego With Dark Money:
George Soros is using a charitable backdoor to funnel $1.5 million of “dark money” to a far-left candidate looking to be San Diego’s next district attorney. Geneviéve Jones-Wright and George Soros were both attendees at a secretive, swanky event held last fall by the Democracy Alliance, which helps rich lefties cheat the system by funneling money to left wing causes.
The socialist left-wing Trump hating billionaire George Soros is the source of hundreds of millions of dollars in donations to left wing political campaigns, and right now he is paying to cover the expenses of DA races all across the country.
Geneviéve Jones-Wright Has “Fully Embraced” Soros
Thanks to the California Justice & Public Safety PAC, which is run by a longtime Soros operative named Whitney Tymas, Jones-Wright has been able to spend $100,000 on digital ad runs, more than $107,000 on literature and almost $200,000 for television advertisements.
Stephan’s campaign strategist Jason Roe has been reaching out to media to talk about the unfair advantage, saying that Jones-Wright has received the cash by agreeing with Soros on decriminalizing sexual crimes and closing jails and “not enforcing what she calls ‘quality of life’ crimes like breaking and entering.’
Connection Discovered By Current DA
The current DA in San Diego, Summer Stephan, has been ringing the bell on the influence of Soros on the race, starting the website Threat To San Diego that talks about the “anti-law enforcement” money that is being pumped into the city.
Stephan highlights quotes from both Jones-Wright and Soros, including Soros talking about himself, saying that he had “always harbored an exaggerated view of self importance” and that he thought of himself as “some sort of god.”
What is Dark Money?
Dark Money are the funds that are given to 501(c) non-profit organizations that are not required to disclose their donors, when those funds are then in turn used to influence elections.
The these can receive unlimited amounts of money from unions, individuals and corporations and have been around since a 1976 Supreme Court decision on the “eight magic words” which defined campaign marketing. If a group uses phrases like these:
- “vote for”
- “cast your ballot for”
- “Jimmy for Congress”
- “vote against”
…then the group is not exempt from campaign finance laws. But, if your marketing doesn’t use those words — maybe they say “Jimmy is a hardworking veteran who loves children and puppies” — then you are exempt.
By not engaging in “express advocacy” the 501(c) groups that recent funds do not have to name their donors despite their election influencing activities.
We’ve covered the Democracy Alliance before. They are a:
“…donor club of deep-pocketed liberal donors that each pledge to direct hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding to approved left-wing groups [with a] tradition of secrecy, promising all members and guests of the summit their participation would remain confidential.”
When we covered their last meeting, we noticed that the conference included a hospitality suite that was attended by the President of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards, under whose leadership almost four million children have been murdered.
Another guest was David Brock, the founded of the progressive Media Matters group. He also was involved in founding Correct The Record, which became famous during the Trump election as employees from his group were found to be infesting all sorts of right wing websites, posing as conservatives while sowing disagreement in the ranks. One of the biggest “tells” of the employees of CTR on right wing sites was that they would call themselves a “former Trump supporter,” or a “long time conservative” who is upset with Trump and will therefore be voting for Hillary. Overall he is considered to be very influential thanks to his nasty online tactics which were not strong enough to get Hillary into the White House.
The information was found out after an agenda was leaked to the press, showing that speakers at the event included Sen. Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and George Soros.
“Pelosi and Harris are not the only two politicians to have a presence at the swanky conference—Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf (D.) held a Thursday event on his reelection efforts, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) will speak on Friday about “Russian interference in the 2016 election,” and Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (D., Minn.), who chairs the DCCC, will attend a “festive brunch” on Saturday morning. Also making a “special appearance” on Friday will be Virginia’s governor-elect Ralph Northam.”
