I might normally begin by saying something like, “you’ll never guess whose money is behind the opposition to Roy Moore.” The problem is, that you’ve probably already guessed whose money is behind the attacks on Judge Roy Moore in Alabama.
Same as it ever was…
George Soros. This time Soros is joined by a few other leftwing anti-freedom, big government nannies. An exposé from Politico on Monday finally revealed that the biggest anti-Moore group was actually a conglomeration of various leftwing entities, including the two largest Democrat Super PACS, mostly funded by Soros.
Highway 31 was created in November, Federal Election Commission filings show. Though Birmingham lawyer Edward Still is listed as the group’s treasurer, it was, in fact, founded jointly with Senate Majority PAC, the outside group closely tied to Democratic leadership in the Senate.
Highway 31 has been funded jointly by Senate Majority PAC and Priorities USA Action, the Democratic super PAC that backed Barack Obama in 2012 and Hillary Clinton in 2016, the Democrats briefed on the arrangement told POLITICO …
The group’s backing has remained secret until now because federal laws do not require it to disclose its donors until after the election. Jones’ camp has kept its distance from the group, and no information has surfaced until now about its background.
The group has spent more than $4 MILLION in there effort to derail Moore’s candidacy, which is far more than anyone else has spent on the race.
Perhaps the most disturbing fact about the opposition to Judge Moore? It’s almost exclusively from OUTSIDE Alabama, meaning that if Moore loses it will likely have nothing to do with what voters in Alabama actually think and more to do with the huge sums of money being poured into the state from Soros, Schumer, and their leftwing cabal.
Highway 31 filed its statement of organization with the Federal Election Commission on November 6, and in its 36 days of existence has delivered almost all of its $4.1 million of political messaging on credit provided by its largest vendors, three secretive Washington D.C. based consulting firms founded and run by former Obama campaign staffers.
The firms are Waterfront Strategies, a wholly owned subsidiary of GMMB Consulting, founded and run by former Obama campaign staffer Jim Margolis; Bully Pulpit Interactive, founded and run by former Obama campaign staffer Andrew Bleeker; and Putnam Partners, founded and run by former Obama campaign staffer Mark Putnam.
Federal Election Commission records show that Priorities Action USA raised and spent $192 million in the 2016 election cycle. The vast majority of the funds raised–$130 million out of $192 million–was donated by 37 individuals, each of whom donated more than $500,000. Among the top donors were New York City financier James Simons, who donated $11 million; Fred Eyechaner of Chicago, Illinois, who donated $11 million; George Soros, who donated $9.5 million; his son Alex Soros, who donated $1 million; and Hollywood mavens Steven Spielberg and Jeff Katzenberg, who donated $1 million each.
Not a single one of these donors is from the state of Alabama and all of them are connected to the Democrat coastal elites.
There couldn’t be a more clear indicator of what this race is really about.
This is leftwing coastal liberals like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and George Soros against the anti-establishment conservatives who actually live in and care for the great state of Alabama.
