The Democracy Alliance — which was co-founded by billionaire activist George Soros — is a secretive club of wealthy liberal donors who pledge hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding to approved left-wing agendas.
The documents show that electing ultra-progressive prosecutors in cities across the country is a key part of their “resistance” efforts and 2018 strategy.
At the summit, closed events were held on issues ranging from using the state of California as a progressive template available elsewhere to the “importance of prosecutor races,” according to the Free Beacon.
“Progressive prosecutors are winning—from Florida to Pennsylvania, Texas to Illinois,” a flier for one session read. “Bold reform candidates have been propelled by movement players and driven record voter turnout of African Americans, Latinos, and Millennials—and are shifting the political narrative.”
Soros was listed as the host for an event which shared an “early peek at more than 30 hot races” that overlap in key 2018 battlegrounds.
Quietly flooding prosecutor races with large sums of money is one of Soros’ preferred methods in trying to “overhaul” the U.S. justice system.
Larry Krasner, a progressive defense attorney who, in early November, was elected district attorney in Philadelphia, is the most recent candidate to win an election after being financially backed almost exclusively by Soros.
Soros follows this method of funding prosecutor races in nearly every city he targets: The financier establishes super PACs, pours money into them, refunds himself the remaining funds at the conclusion of the race, and then shuts them down.
Soros established the Philadelphia Justice & Public Safety PAC and poured nearly $2 million into it with the sole intent of backing Krasner, according to the report.
So far, Soros has pushed millions into district attorney races in Ohio, Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and New Mexico.
Whitney Tymas, who acts as treasurer of Soros’ prosecutor PACs, appeared at the conference to speak about upcoming races, alongside other liberal activists.
The conference was headlined by speeches from Soros, who was introduced via video message by Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), according to the group’s private memo obtained by the Free Beacon.
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (D., N.M), CNN contributor Van Jones, Center for American Progress CEO Neera Tanden, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, and Virginia Gov.-elect Ralph Northam, among others, were also in attendance, according to the agenda.
Senator Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) delivered a video message to the group.
David Brock, founder of Media Matters, and Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) were spotted at the resort but were not listed on the summit’s agenda.
