When President Obama gave his farewell speech in Chicago Tuesday evening, he suggested, “We should reduce the corrosive influence of money in our politics.”
However, records show liberal, billionaire donor George Soros contributed $17.5 million to election campaigns in 2016 alone; and his son, Alexander Soros, is quietly stepping up to become a major Democratic donor, as well.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that Alexander Soros donated over $4.5 million in 2016 to multiple Democratic campaign committees and super PACS.
Alexander, 31, acts as the managing partner for Soros Brothers Investments and is expected to play a key role in following in his father’s footsteps and funding the liberal movement.
Out of the $4.5 million he donated in 2016, the largest chunk of that ($3.5 million) reportedly went to the Senate Majority PAC, a political action committee put together by former Senator Harry Reid.
Other donations included $127,800 to the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee and $133,400 to the Democratic National Committee Services Corporation.
Additionally, Alexander gave the maximum allowance of $5,400 to several Democratic politicians, including Hillary Clinton, Russ Feingold, Chuck Schumer, and Keith Ellison.
He also gave $10,000 checks to several individual state Democratic parties, including Illinois, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Nevada, Texas, Oregon, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
