The Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund released a report this month on the 75 George Soros funded radical prosecutors put in power in many of our country’s major metropolitan areas from Chicago, to Boston, to San Franscisco, to St. Louis.
In most of these free-spending contests, progressive forces proved victorious by either defeating incumbent Democrats or crushing a field of primary contenders. Strikingly, most of these prosecutors were political neophytes and had zero prosecutorial experience – previously an assumed prerequisite for office. Many have no previous criminal case experience.
The decisive factor in most cases was outside financing – unprecedented levels of campaign cash directly from large donors or through third-party allied groups (i.e., political action committees).
