On Monday, far-left billionaire George Soros declared that he would continue to financially support district attorneys and other candidates who are explicitly soft on crime, falsely claiming that such candidates will make the criminal justice system “more effective and just.”
The New York Post reports that the 91-year-old Soros, in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, stated that “I have no intention of stopping” his support for prosecutors who deliberately reduce criminal penalties and refuse to enforce certain laws. Soros pointed to such examples as Alvin Bragg, the new District Attorney for Manhattan, whom Soros falsely called “popular” and “effective.”
As the dust has settled in the days since a political earthquake hit California with the landslide recall of San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin, a distinct voting pattern has emerged.
Precinct-by-precinct voting maps show minority voters backing the recall in much higher numbers than college-educated, affluent white progressives, with very few exceptions. It’s not difficult to understand why, California political analysts across the spectrum tell RealClearPolitics. Minority communities suffer more when crimes rates are soaring than insulated wealthier neighborhoods with more protections and money for security.
Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s approval rating dropped significantly over recent months, according to the results of a new poll.

An adult biological male child molester will be housed in a juvenile detention facility for girls because he began identifying as a woman after being taken into custody, according to Fox News.
William Tubbs, a 26-year old who now goes by “Hannah,” pled guilty to molesting a 10-year-old girl when he was two weeks shy of 18, Fox News reported. Prosecutors said that Tubbs grabbed the 10-year-old victim by the throat, locked her in a bathroom stall and put his hands down her pants, Fox News reported.
Tubbs did not claim to be a woman until after he was taken into custody for the attack, prosecutors told Fox News. Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon refused to prosecute Tubbs as an adult.
