Leaked Documents Reveal Expansive Soros Funding to Manipulate Federal Elections

In an article posted to the PJMedia website a case is presented alleging that funding sources by George Soros and his organisations have been used for the purpose of manipulating Federal Elections in the United States of America.


Leaked funding documents reveal an effort by George Soros and his foundations to manipulate election laws and process rules ahead of the federal election far more expansively than has been previously reported.

The billionaire and convicted felon moved hundreds of millions of dollars into often-secret efforts to change election laws, fuel litigation to attack election integrity measures, push public narratives about voter fraud, and to integrate the political ground game of the left with efforts to scare racial minority groups about voting rights threats.

These Soros-funded efforts moved through dozens of 501(c)(3) and (c)(4) charities and involved the active compliance with civil rights groups, government officials, and purportedly non-partisan groups like the League of Women Voters.

The leaked documents also reveal deliberate and successful efforts to manipulate media coverage of election issues in mainstream media outlets like the The New York Times.


The article is more of a narrative than a closely worded analysis, but there are several points raised that certainly raise eyebrows. The question underlying the article is why should a convicted felon like George Soros be allowed to exercise such influence simply because he is wealthy.

S ource

Well no one should be allowed to underhandedly influence elections in contravention of the law, no matter their conviction status or economic-social position.

Thanks for sharing, interested to see what comes of this.

Soros money is funding some of the loudest voices who deny that voter fraud is a serious problem. These voices have produced poorly researched studies that are routinely cited by mainstream media to argue that voter fraud is a myth. Among the groups are the Brennan Center for Justice and the Advancement Project, two organizations that have opposed election integrity laws and have sought to stop the efforts of states to ensure that only citizens are voting. Soros grants also went to "New America Media," which describes itself as "a nationwide association of 3,000 ethnic media organizations representing the development of a more inclusive journalism." This mix of funding for media efforts with non-profit organizations that oppose election integrity was branded as "Broad and Equitable Access to the Ballot" in Soros funding documents.


When looking into Soros funding of the revolution in the Ukraine or in other countries as well as considering his funds being used in the USA's election cycle, one wonders what Soros ultimate goal is apart from undermining governments and the constitutional rule of law in association with destabilisation efforts of the CIA and the State Department of the Executive Branch of the US government.

I agree completely with your statement. In any nation when the wealthy can unduly influence the electoral process there is no such thing as "one man, one vote".

I am glad to see that you do. Any system that privileges the wealthy to exert an unequal influence over an election through the expense of their wealth (compared to a voting member of the society of modest or constrained financial means) is fundamentally anti-democratic and will lead to the destruction of any republic.

Thank Citizens United, a Conservative decision, for why he is able to have such influence.

Right or wrong, it would be nice if for once the Republicans accepted the consequence of their collective decision.

Yes, Citizens United, a Conservative decision, allowed this to happen.

Agreed, but that was happening long before Soros. If you guys are speaking of uber wealthy controlling our politicians, elections, and policies, then this is way beyond Soros. There is a reason many believe we functionally live in an oligarchy now.
