Report: Dem billionaire donor Tom Steyer joins Soros to fund PACs


Democratic billionaire donor Tom Steyer, who has launched a $20 million campaign in an attempt to get President Trump impeached, is reportedly one of the main donors of a political action committee that was set up in an effort to register more Hispanic voters.

Steyer also announced in January that he would be spending $30 million to fund his advocacy group, NextGen America, in an attempt to motivate millennials in 10 states key states to vote.

The Washington Free Beacon reported Wednesday:

The Immigrant Voters Win PAC was launched in early 2016 as part of a campaign between three progressive organizations to register and turn out Latino voters after complaints that Democratic donors, including those in the Democracy Alliance, a secretive dark money liberal donor network, were not doing enough for Latino-based groups.

Liberal billionaire George Soros, cofounder of the Democracy Alliance, initially cut a $3 million check to the PAC and was for months its sole funder before other donors and committees began contributing.

Soros set a personal goal of enlarging the electorate by 10 million voters, according to hacked documents from his foundation, and vowed to make Republicans pay for their “anti-immigrant” rhetoric. Soros also funded multi-state challenges against voter identification laws, which was led by Marc Elias, a partner at the D.C. office of the Perkins Coie law firm, who was Hillary Clinton’s top campaign lawyer.

The Immigrant Voters Win PAC raised a total of $10 million leading up to the 2016 election.

Now, Steyer, who is also linked to the Democracy Alliance, is almost single-handedly bankrolling the PAC this election cycle.

NextGen Climate Action Committee, a PAC associated with Steyer, contributed $718,236 to Immigrant Voters Win between October and mid-December, according to the PAC’s most recentfilings.

The PAC raised a total of $748,000 last year, with Steyer’s funds accounting for nearly all of the donations outside of a $19,000 donation from Center for Community Change Action, a prominent anti-Trump “resistance” group.
