Left-wing billionaire George Soros has provided an additional $1 million to support Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, Fox News reported, citing campaign finance records. Soros is notorious for using his massive fortune to advance radical leftist ideology.
Fox News reported that according to state filings, the liberal megadonor's Democracy PAC II directed the funds to One Georgia Inc. on September 30 — the outlet described One Georgia Inc. as a leadership committee, which Abrams chairs, and which is utilized to boost her run for office.
The recent infusion of money came on top of the $2.5 million Soros' Democracy PAC II had already funneled into the committee in the months of March and June, according to Fox News. Earlier this year, Fox News cited Federal Election Commission records to report that Democracy PAC II had donated $1 million to One Georgia on March 11. The outlet has also reported that the Soros-funded Democracy PAC II gave $1.5 million to One Georgia on June 23, according to a One Georgia contribution disclosure report — that report also notes the $1 million contribution from March.
Fox News also reported that the wealthy left-wing donor's daughter, Andrea Soros Colombel, gave One Georgia $100,000 in August, and that his daughter-in-law, Jennifer Allan Soros, gave $500 last month.
Soros has also given money directly to Abrams' campaign, according to Fox News, which earlier this year pointed to a campaign filing to report that Soros and two of his children had each given three donations to the campaign in January, which added up to $19,700 apiece.
Abrams lost the Peach State's 2018 gubernatorial election to Republican Brian Kemp, but the two are competing again during the 2022 contest as Abrams challenges the incumbent GOP governor.
Abrams has claimed that being pro-choice is part of her faith — Abrams said that "the decision to be pro-choice is exactly part of my faith. I cannot strike down another person's rights simply because I don't agree." She said that according to her faith, "you protect the vulnerable and you wrap them in your love."
In a 2018 campaign ad, Abrams said that according to her reading of scripture, "Jesus Christ was a progressive."
\u201cAs a woman of faith, I know that my faith should never be used as a sword to strike down others but instead as a shield to protect.\n\nI cannot strike down another person\u2019s rights simply because I don\u2019t agree.\u201d— Stacey Abrams (@Stacey Abrams) 1656847800
