Alvin Bragg George Soros
Alvin is one of the many progressive prosecutors proudly backed by billionaire George Soros. While campaigning to become the next Manhattan DA, he received more than $1 million in support from the Color Of Change PAC, a racial justice group which receives funding from Soros, a Hungarian-born billionaire financier-turned-American mega-donor.
Bragg is just one of at least 75 district attorneys Soros has backed in recent years as part of an ongoing campaign to reshape American society in his liberal vision.
In the 2022 op-ed for The Wall Street Journal, Soros defended his donations and said the strategies he supports reduce crime, based on the data that he had seen.
Over the years Soros has thrown millions behind liberal DAs – either with outright donations or funneled through political action committees – effectively buying elections and leading to the installment of prosecutors who support his leftist agenda.
Soros has spent at least $40 million on the project, according to Matt Palumbo, author of The Man Behind the Curtain: Inside the Secret Network of George Soros a minuscule sum for a man worth at least $32 billion.
Soros has long backed liberal politics. In the 2000s he was an outspoken opponent of President George W. Bush and donated millions to hinder his reelection, and later donated heavily to the presidential campaigns of Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton.
