    On April 28, Soros poured nearly $1.5 million into the Philadelphia Justice and Public Safety PAC, which supported candidate Larry Krasner in the Democratic primary. Krasner won on Tuesday, and by a wide margin.

    He is expected to win the general election this fall, as Philadelphia is a Democratic stronghold. How much of a difference the PAC money made is unclear, but the cash infusion helped pay for TV commercials, campaign literature, and online ads to promote the candidacy of the civil rights attorney who has never worked as a prosecutor.

    The race marked the first time a super PAC has supported a D.A. candidate in Philadelphia.

    Krasner, as the Daily Caller puts it, benefited from “the kind of capital typically reserved for important national political campaigns.”

    But it’s not the first time Soros has pumped cash into local D.A. races, in an apparent bid to shape the approach to law enforcement on the ground level.

    Last August, Politico reported that Soros had channeled more than $3 million into seven local district-attorney campaigns in six states over the past year.

    Are you upset that an uber-wealthy citizen is donating to PACs? Or just b/c it's Soros?

    Really? Did you just feel like you wanted to create a thread and this is the best you could come up with? Maybe USMB has a trophy for people feeling that way?

    Philly is a Democratic stronghold. In light of that, just how much money -- extra or not -- does a Philly Democratic candidate need to win an election in Philly?

    The central theme of your post is no different than saying Soros, or anyone, pumped millions into a D.C. Democrat's campaign, and the Democrat won the election. That was going to happen with or without the cash infusion. It's just a matter of which Democrat is going to win.

    It's not just Soros and it just isn't our D.A. races. We have dark money showing up in councils:
    Colorado Springs city election draws big wad of dark money

    Governors:
    How Unregulated Dark Money Is Reshaping State Politics

    Then there is Wellspring and Judicial Crisis Network
    Wellspring's dark money crucial to judicial group, helps others in Trump orbit

    A look at Michigan
    Dark Money and Justice: Michigan is like no other state.

    State Supreme Courts:
    New Analysis: 2016 Judicial Elections See Secret Money and Heightened Outside Spending

    Judicial elections getting more political with new campaign spending

    And then there is the Koch Brothers and the left uniting for criminal justice reform.
    An unlikely alliance forms between Koch brothers and liberal groups

    None of these clowns have to deal with the repercussions. They get big walls and gates and big houses on land that is protected. They have their own private security.

    You assholes all cheered Citizens United. You cheered the Koch Bros. for spending billions to get Republicans elected at all levels of government. Democrats are just levelling the playing field.

    This is the result.

    Underlying Soros's support for drug legalization:
    “One very possible answer is that he hopes to profit from them [drugs] once they become legal. He has been particularly active in South America, buying up large tracts of land and forging alliances with those in a position to mass-produce narcotics should they become legalized in the United States. He has also helped fund the Andean Council of Coca Leaf producers. Needless to say, this organization would stand to benefit enormously from the legalization of cocaine. He has also taken a 9 percent stake in Banco de Colombia, located in the Colombian drug capital of Cali. The Drug Enforcement Administration has speculated that the bank is being used to launder money and that Soros's fellow shareholders may be members of a major drug cartel.”
