President Trump’s call for an investigation into potential voter fraud was like a dog whistle to Democrats, who mobilized their ranks quickly in opposition to voter ID laws.
Political activist and billionaire, George Soros is funding the organization tasked with creating a national database to update other progressive groups on voting measures which may thwart efforts to stop Republicans from enacting new voter ID laws.
According to a report from The Washington Free Beacon, several Democratic-aligned groups have put together a large infrastructure and advisory board of progressive groups to oppose voter ID laws.
One of those groups is the Soros-funded nonprofit Priorities USA, which was the largest liberal super PAC behind Hillary Clinton when she ran for President in 2016. The organization was originally created in 2012 to support President Barack Obama’s bid for reelection, according to a 2013 story from Politico.
The list of groups and individuals heading this massive effort include democratic notables such as Marc Elias, Clinton’s former campaign lawyer, and dedicated warrior against voter ID laws in Virginia, Ohio, Wisconsin, and North Carolina. Even more interesting is the fact that Elias’ efforts were funded by…, guess who? George Soros.
Elias recently joined the board of Priorities USA.
Let America Vote is a brand-new “nonprofit” established by former Democratic Missouri Secretary of State and failed Senate candidate, Jason Kander.
According to a press release, Kander claimed that voting in the U.S. is already too difficult for many citizens. “Voting in our country has never been easy, and, unfortunately, it’s never been guaranteed for everyone,” he said. “Let America Vote will make the case for voting rights by exposing the real motivations of those who favor voter suppression laws. For the first time, politicians intent on denying certain Americans the right to vote will first have to consider the political consequences.”
The Washington Free Beacon noted that democratic operatives on a 27-member board include former White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest and Martin Luther King Jr. III, a human rights activist.
