Stacey Abrams’ business benefited from George Soros’ campaign to elect district attorneys in a number of carefully chosen cities around the nation.
According to a report from the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission, the Georgia Safety and Justice PAC paid Sage Works LLC $15,000 for “strategic consulting services” in October 2016 with funds from Soros totaling $147,000.
Fox News reports that Sage Works LLC is owned by Abrams.
The business, which Abrams founded in 2002, also has her as CEO. She is running as the Democratic candidate for governor of Georgia.
Georgia Safety and Justice, a “left-of-center PAC that was created in 2016 and spent $145,651.32 on the election campaign of Darius Pattillo for District Attorney in Henry County, Georgia.” was characterized by Influence Watch as thus.
“The organization is the Georgia branch of the vast ‘Safety and Justice’ network, a project of left-leaning billionaire George Soros that used a network of similarly named state-level PACs to finance the campaigns of progressive Democratic candidates for district attorney in more than a dozen of America’s cities.”
According to the Capital Research Center, in his campaign to elect district attorneys, Soros funneled more than $29 million through a number of political action committees.
Parker Thayer of CRC said the 22016 donation from Soros is evidence that Abrams is connected to organizations “at the very heart of the soft-on-crime defund the police movement … no matter how much Abrams herself tries to deny it.”
According to Thayer, the donation proves Soros “had been working with very powerful people for a long time to create the left-wing DA movement.”
He went on to say that “It was his money that greased the wheels and set the crime machine rolling, and he bears a great deal of responsibility for the consequences.”
