George Soros teamed up with Hillary’s lawyer to stop voter ID laws. And now the billionaire is spending oodles of money to lure Hispanics into voting for Clinton.
Liberal Billionaire George Soros committed $5 million last year to a litigation effort challenging voter ID laws in multiple states. The project is being headed by Marc Elias, who is Hillary Clinton’s top campaign lawyer. Elias is an attorney for the Washington, DC-based Perkins Cole Law Firm, but is working independently of Clinton’s campaign on the voter ID challenge.
More recently, Soros donated $3 million on March 11, 2016 to a brand new super PAC, “Immigrant Voters Win PAC”. So far, Soros is the only donor to this PAC, according to FEC filings. Immigrant Voters Win PAC is a part of a campaign called “Families Fight Bank”, organized by immigration activist groups and aimed at getting Latinos out to vote for Democrats. Their goal is to register 400,000 new Latino voters in time for the November election.
Soros had told the NY Times that he would commit at least $5 million to the PAC. He had promised “consequences” for proposals by Republican candidates to control immigration. “The intense anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric that has been fueled by the Republican primary is deeply offensive,” Mr. Soros said. “It is harmful to our democracy and to our national interests. There should be consequences for the outrageous statements and proposals that we’ve regularly heard.”
Three groups joined together to form “Families Fight Back”, which include the Center for Community Change Action, Latino Victory Project, and America’s Voice…. and Soros’ money and connections is interwoven through it all.
