Another election and another win for George Soros and his corrupt goons. The left wing billionaire poured almost $1.5 Million into the race for District Attorney in Philadelphia. Even worse, his candidate, liberal lawyer Larry Krasner, won handily.
Krasner who has never worked a day as a prosecutor will now take on the difficult task of prosecuting all of the crime in a city with one of America’s highest crime rates. Sure, it might seem like Krasner is ill-suited and ill-prepared for the position, but for Soros all that matters is that he now owns another high-powered politician.
Kranser was a dark-horse candidate when the race started but once he was able to convince Soros to become his patron, the race turned in to a walk off for Krasner who easily dominated the field of 7 candidates.
In a traditional race for district attorney in Philadelphia, Michael Untermeyer and Joe Khan would be at the head of the pack while the other five candidates in the May 16 Democratic primary election would be trying to catch them.
This is not a traditional race for district attorney…
The Philly Enquirer added that Krasner would not have stood a chance without Soros because his competitors outmatched him in experience, name recognition, skill, and money. But, thankfully for Krasner, Soros save his day…
Soros changed the game. And that realigned the targets.
This isn’t the first time that Soros has stepped in to put his thumb on the scales of democracy and force his own will over the will of the people.
A candidate aligned with Soros’ left-wing politics emerged victorious thanks to the billionaire’s willingness to flood local races with the kind of capital typically reserved for important national political campaigns. Soros, a funder of Black Lives Matter, is a staunch advocate for reforming policing methods and softening drug laws. Installing like-minded district attorneys allows Soros the opportunity to influence law enforcement policies around the country.
In one such instance, Soros poured $600,000 into the Houston district attorney’s race last fall. Soros initially gave $100,000 to Morris Overstreet, a former judge who was the first African-American elected to a statewide office in Texas history. Overstreet’s Democratic primary opponent, Kim Ogg, called Soros’ influx of cash “a last-minute money dump to try to buy the nomination.” Ogg won the Democratic primary and later the general election, thanks in part to her own last-minute money dump from Soros, who spent $500,000 on ads supporting Ogg.
