Far-left district attorney candidates who appeared on November ballots and received backing from billionaire George Soros have swept their elections, according to a nationwide search of records and election results.

Fox News Digital performed a 50-state search of campaign finance databases and identified at least four prosecutor candidates who received financial backing from Soros and won their November elections, including two newcomers and two candidates he’s previously backed.

Soros’ district attorney operation involves his longtime treasurer, Whitney Tymas, establishing “pop-up” political action committees in states where he targets the prosecutor races. Once set up, the financier injects money into the PACs, which tend to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars backing his preferred candidates. The PACs typically dissolve after the elections. 

In some past cases, Tymas established committees on the city level, such as in Philadelphia for District Attorney Larry Krasner. Fox News Digital’s sweep solely covered state databases, which means there could be more candidates.

The Soros-backed candidates who made it to the November elections include Kimberly Graham in Iowa. This past summer, Graham received more than $300,000 in backing from the financier in her Polk County Attorney Democratic primary election. The progressive candidate faced Republican defense attorney Allan Richards in Tuesday’s general election but easily defeated him by nearly 14 percentage points.

Soros steered $300,000 to the Maine Justice & Public Safety PAC in May. That money backed Jackie Sartoris, who defeated Cumberland County’s Democratic District Attorney Jonathan Sahrbeck in a June primary. No Republican or independent candidate filed to run against Sartoris, which made her a shoo-in for the general election.

In Texas, Soros spent hundreds of thousands in last-minute cash backing Bexar County District Attorney Joe Gonzalez and Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot, both of whom Soros previously helped propel into office. Gonzalez fended off Republican challenger Marc LaHood, while Creuzot defeated Republican challenger Faith Johnson by 20 percentage points.

The latest round of district attorney cash comes on the heels of efforts that have been underway for years. Soros views district attorneys as a significant component of overhauling the criminal justice system and has financially backed dozens of far-left prosecutor candidates, including Krasner in Philadelphia, Kim Foxx in Chicago, Kim Gardner in St. Louis and George Gascón in Los Angeles.

Soros has also bankrolled numerous initiatives intending to overhaul the criminal justice system. In 2020, his Open Society Foundations network pledged $70 million to local efforts for such reforms, which was part of a more significant $220 million push for racial equality.

Additionally, Soros has funneled cash into an effort that calls for abolishing the police. In 2019 and 2020, his Foundation to Promote Open Society, a nonprofit in his sprawling network, earmarked $4.5 million to the Community Resource Hub for Safety and Responsibility, Fox News Digital previously reported.

Soros’ cash helped create the group, which has reviewed “alternatives to policing in the context of police abolitionist frameworks,” the group’s memo to organizers said. 

Soros’ Open Society Policy Center, his advocacy nonprofit, also pushed a $500,000 donation into the failed 2021 effort to “dismantle” and replace the Minneapolis police department. That effort was spearheaded by far-left activists and supported by Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar.

Michael Vachon, Soros’ spokesperson, did not immediately respond to a Fox News Digital inquiry on his DA cash.

Biden Admin Gives $41M to Help Illegal Immigrants Fight Deportation

By Adam Andrzejewski for RealClearPolicy

As the country faces a border crisis, with millions of undocumented immigrants pouring over the southern border this year alone, the Justice Department awarded $41 million in contracts to a nonprofit to help immigrants fight deportation.

The Acacia Center for Justice, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit created as a collaboration between Vera Institute of Justice and Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights, received six legal services contracts from the DOJ beginning Sept. 1, Fox News reported.

“The objective of the Acacia Center for Justice … is to expand on Vera’s work over the past twenty years in providing legal support and representation to immigrants facing deportation through the development, coordination and management of national networks of legal services providers serving immigrants across the country,” the group’s website states.

The Vera Institute, which views immigration enforcement agencies as a “threat” to civil liberties, hauled in a massive $171 million government contract in March to help unaccompanied minors avoid deportation,” Fox News also reported.

Former New York Lt. Gov. Betsy Betsy McCaughey pointed out in a recent column in the New York Post that non-profits get federal funds to facilitate illegal activity by supporting border crossings.

“Democratic politicians want to maximize illegal immigration, but they don’t want their fingerprints on it,” she wrote. “The remedy: pay so-called charities that will do the work for them.”

She said migrants still in Mexico are given debit cards — with $800 a month to pay for necessities — distributed by the non-profit Organization for Migration, paid for with funds from the U.S. State Department.

“The money isn’t coming from the Sunday collection basket,” McCaughey writes. “Sister Pimentel [executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley] admits her organization is reimbursed by the federal government. It’s coming from taxpayers, who have no clue they’re supporting this operation.”

Biden Call To Congratulate Fetterman Lasts Three Hours As Neither Can Form A Coherent Sentence

U.S. — President Biden’s congratulatory call to John Fetterman for his senate race win reportedly lasted in excess of three hours because neither man was able to form a coherent sentence.

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain was forced to adjust Biden’s schedule as the call dragged on and on. Meetings on the economy, foreign policy, and immigration were canceled entirely. Fortunately, Biden was still able to keep his standing tea time with Kamala.

“They just sort of growled at each other after a while. It was very raw and animalistic, as you’d expect from great leaders,” Klain said, advising Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on how best to spin the time-consuming call.

An excerpt of the official transcript of the call has been made available by the White House. A brief excerpt of the call follows —

POTUS: Look, Jack, you great, boy. Not a joke.

Fetterman: Me John. Who Jack?

POTUS: You Jack, man. Come on!

Fetterman: [unintelligible chatter]

POTUS: No. I’m serious! Think about it.

Fetterman: Uh, new phone. Who dis?

POTUS: Hello?

Fetterman: [heavy breathing]

POTUS: [heavy breathing]

At publishing time, White House aides deactivated President Biden’s phone after he once again phoned to ask John Fetterman if the senator-elect would consider running for senate.

Veterans Day

On November 11th, we pause to reflect on the history of this great Nation and honor all those who fought to defend it. Originally titled “Armistice Day” and intended to celebrate the end of World War I, “the war to end all wars,” Veterans Day allows us to give thanks to veterans past and present, men and women from all walks of life and all ethnicities, who stood up and said, “Send me.” We recognize your sacrifices, your sense of duty and your love for this country.

Thank you – To ALL our veterans!
