Billionaire George Soros has used his wealth to reshape America in his liberal vision, funding campaigns for woke district attorneys across the country.
Over the years, Soros has thrown millions behind liberal prosecutors — either with direct donations or funneled through political action committees — which has effectively bought elections and led to the installment of at least 75 prosecutors who support his leftist agenda.
Soros spent at least $40 million on the project, wrote Matt Palumbo, author of The Man Behind the Curtain: Inside the Secret Network of George Soros, in the New York Post — a tiny sum for a man worth at least $32 billion is.
The billionaire’s prosecutor’s office abolished bail laws and chose not to prosecute for crimes like theft and reckless driving, effectively giving criminals a free pass and leading to the collapse of law and order in the United States.
As a direct result, crime in major cities overseen by Soros’ prosecutor has skyrocketed. In 2021, under Kim Foxx’s rule, Chicago had its highest homicide count since 1994. And in Philadelphia, drug use and violent crime have seen spikes since Larry Krasner took office.
Soros, a Hungarian-born businessman, has long supported liberal politics. He was an outspoken opponent of President George W. Bush in the 2000s, donating millions to prevent his re-election and later donating heavily to the presidential campaigns of Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton.
Below are some of his most notorious DAs and their policies.
George Soros has pumped at least $40 million to support bright prosecutors
Kim Foxx: Forgiving of gun violence and shoplifting in Chicago
Cooks County, Illinois District Attorney Foxx received at least $2 million for the Soros-backed PACS.
Upon taking office in Chicago, Foxx raised the threshold for shoplifting to be considered a felony from $300 worth of goods to $1,000.
Criminals in the city face little more than a slap on the wrist, and raids on stores have skyrocketed.
Foxx also faced the wrath of Chicago officials after she refused to prosecute people filmed in a daylight shooting because she described the violent crime as a “mutual struggle.”

Larry Krasner: Arrests loose despite hundreds of murders in Philly
Philadelphia District Attorney Krasner received about $1.5 million from Soros-backed groups.
Over 1,000 people were murdered in the city of brotherly love under his watch.
Despite these staggering numbers, suspects were arrested in only 38.5 percent of fatal shootings. The other 61.5 percent saw no one arrested.
Alvin Bragg: Reduced sentences for NYC armed robbery
Bragg received over $1 million in support from a Soros organization while running for prosecutor in Manhattan, New York.
Bragg vowed to reduce penalties for armed robbery and no longer prosecute resisters.
Kim Gardner, Attorney for St. Louis, Missouri
He’s also sustained a litany of shoplifting, which has led to fast-paced robberies at upscale retail locations across the city.
Thefts from pharmacies, bodegas and supermarkets in New York City have led to shopkeepers locking merchandise on shelves with chains and padlocks.
Kim Gardner: Homicides hit 50-year high in St. Louis
St. Louis, Missouri, DA received approximately $116,000 from Soros-backed PACs.
Under her supervision, the St. Louis homicide is a 50-year high.
George Gascón, Attorney for Los Angeles County, California
Despite those numbers, Gardner has charged fewer and fewer crimes.
George Gascón: The Los Angeles Attorney Who Woke Up
The prosecutor’s office for Los Angeles County, California, was assisted with approximately $4.7 million from the Soros-backed California Justice and Public Safety PAC.
Gascón has pushed and implemented a series of lax criminal justice reforms since taking office, including abolishing bail for some crimes and adjusting crime thresholds.
Crime – particularly home burglaries – has skyrocketed, even leading to “crime tourists” fleeing South America to affluent communities, then fleeing home with their loot once released on bail.
Joe Gonzales: Homicides up 50 percent
DA of Bexar County, Texas, Gonzales received $1 million from Soros.
Homicides have skyrocketed by 50 percent since he took office in 2018, according to The Post.
Jose Garza, District Attorney for Travis County, Texas
José Garza: Vowed to stop “over-tracing” in Texas
The Travis County, Texas prosecutor received about $600,000 from the Soros-backed Texas Justice and Safety PAC.
Garza pledged to end “over-persecution” of minorities and impoverished residents.
He has also drawn the wrath of the Austin Police Department for arresting officers over incidents handled as part of the department’s internal process.
John Creuzot: Allows “necessity” robbery in Dallas
Creuzot received at least $236,000 from Soros while running for DA from Dallas County, Texas, Creuzot.
His office does not prosecute theft of less than $750 worth of “personal effects” that were “stolen out of necessity.”
Steve Descano: Voided crime bails in Virginia
Descano, the Fairfax County, Virginia state attorney, received $600,000 in donations from Soros.
He has lifted bail money for many crimes, arguing that this “exacerbates socioeconomic inequalities” and leads to more crime.
George Gascon’s History of Clemency
DECEMBER – Gascon sought to have the previous two “strikes” removed in the case of a mother accused of murdering her daughter. Akira Keyshell Smith, 36, is charged with murder, assaulting a child and torture in the death of Eternity Smith, four, who died in August 2020.
JANUARY 1 – Hannah Tubbs, 26, pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl in the bathroom of a Denny’s location in Palmdale, California, in 2014 when she was 17. Gascon said she should be tried as a juvenile – and Tubbs was caught on a taped line in prison boasting about Gascon’s lenient sentence. In February he admitted it was too soft.

February – Gascon admits a policy for which he was elected – a ban on life sentences in murder cases – was not always right.
– Former Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck rescinded his support for Los Angeles District Attorney Gascón, joining a chorus of law enforcement officials and victim advocates who have expressed concern about Gascón’s soft crime policies.
May – Dave Chapelle is attacked on stage by Isaiah Lee, 23, on May 3. Lee was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, and Gascon decided not to prosecute Lee for a felony. They said that although criminal behavior has occurred, they believe it “does not constitute criminal behavior” and is only a misdemeanor. Chapelle’s attorney said he was “upset” by Gascon’s decision.
– A California parole board recommended the release of Charles Manson’s supporter Patricia Krenwinkel for the first time. Krenwinkel, 74, was previously denied parole 14 times for the 1969 killing of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and four others. But for the first time, Los Angeles County prosecutors were not at the parole hearing to object, according to Gascon’s policy that prosecutors should not be involved in deciding whether prisoners are ready for parole.
June – The California Circuit Court of Appeals rules that Gascon cannot order prosecutors to ignore the state’s three-strike law, which can increase prison terms if criminal charges are filed.
