Report: Ala. senate candidate linked to Soros-funded ‘far-left’ activist groups


The Democratic candidate in Alabama’s special election Senate race is encouraging supporters to become involved with “far-left activist groups” tied to billionaire liberal George Soros, according to a new report by Breitbart News.

A website called is dedicated to Democrat Doug Jones. Four groups recommended by the site are listed as having a focus on “matters of justice and equality.” Each is funded by Soros’s Open Society Foundations, according to Breitbart, who also points out that Jones himself in closely associated with at least three of the groups.

The four Soros-financed groups recommended on the website are:

  • The Constitution Project, which describes itself as seeking to “foster consensus-based solutions to the most difficult constitutional challenges of our time.”
  • The Equal Justice Initiative, which says it is “committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.”
  • The Marshal Project, which says that it “seeks to create and sustain a sense of national urgency about the U.S. criminal justice system.” Soros’s Open Society Foundations is listed as a founding donor.
  • The Brennan Center for Justice, which is a far-left policy institute that says it “focuses on the fundamental issues of democracy and justice.”

Jones reportedly has a history of association with the Soros-financed Brennan Center, as well as having ties to the Marshall Project and the Equal Justice Initiative.

Although the Jones’s campaign did not respond to Breitbart’s request looking for clarification about the politician’s exact relationship with the website, a test subscription resulted in an email from “G. Douglas Jones” which welcomed Breitbart as a new subscriber.
