The 2016 U.S. presidential election proved to be one of the most costly political events in the history of the world. One of the largest donors of that election was George Soros, the famous hedge fund manager and philanthropist who has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to political causes across the globe. Soros had donated more than $25 million to the doomed Hillary Clinton campaign, making him the largest single donor to Mrs. Clinton’s campaign as well as the person who stood to lose the most from Mrs. Clinton’s inability to attain the office of the presidency.
But despite this gigantic loss, Soros has gone on investing strategically in political races across the country. Many people are aware that Soros also lost approximately $25 million donating to the campaign of John Kerry in 2004, in an unsuccessful bid to unseat then incumbent George W Bush. However, all of these spectacular losses hide the fact that Soros has been enjoying huge wins all across the southern United States and elsewhere in his bid to completely overhaul the U.S. criminal justice system.

Through his philanthropic organizations, such as The Open Society Foundations, Soros has been strategically funneling money to the campaigns of progressive candidates throughout the United States. Most of these people are minorities or liberals who are dedicated to the reform of the U.S. criminal justice system and the elimination of disparities in both charging and sensing minorities with crimes. In these races, despite an almost total lack of publicity, Soros has been racking up an almost perfect winning track record, unseating conservatives from coast to coast.
One such example was the case of the Aramis Ayala campaign in Orange County, Florida. Miss Ayala was running as the state first African American female candidate for district attorney. She had long worked in the prosecutor’s office as a public defender. But now, Miss Ayala had her sights set on a larger prize. She wanted to be the state of Florida’s first female black prosecutor.
But she had a steep uphill battle to reach her goal. With virtually no funding, her campaign had little chance of competing with a long entrenched incumbent opponent Jeff Ashton. Ashton’s campaign, on top of having coffers full of cash, also had the considerable tailwinds of his long incumbency as Orange County prosecutor.

George Soros stepped up to the plate with his largesse. Through The Open Society Foundations, Soros infused the Ayala campaign with more than 1.$2 million. This instantaneously gave Ayala a huge edge, allowing her to run 24/7 television advertisements and turn out the vote of the city’s considerable minority population. The strategy worked. Today, Ayala is the orange county prosecutor.
