(RepublicanNews.org) – A newly-released study revealed patterns of prosecutorial malpractice at the hands of progressive prosecutors. Financed by left-wing billionaire George Soros, these prosecutors’ actions adversely impacted the outcome of felony cases and public safety.
Edwin Meese, III, wrote the foreword to the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund (LELDF) study. As Meese wrote, its findings “should serve as a wake-up call” to the reality of “well-financed activist prosecutors” working to undermine decades of efforts to reduce crime.

The Daily Signal published an article on October 18 relating the LELDF study’s findings to recent events. For instance, a grand jury indicted Mark and Patricia McCloskey on October 6 for protecting their St. Louis home from marauding Blacks Live Matter demonstrators earlier this year.
Kim Gardner, the local prosecutor who pursued the charges, received nearly $200,000 from a Soros-backed PAC. The Daily Signal also discussed Soros’ broader impact, reporting he spent more than $17 million since 2015 backing progressive prosecutors.
Charles Stimson, a Heritage Foundation senior legal fellow, explained “there’s nothing progressive” about what these well-funded prosecutors are doing. Maybe it’s time for states to consider legislation banning the injection of money from out-of-state billionaires into local elections.
