Re-election campaign for Kim Foxx, the prosecutor that let off Jussie Smollett, scores $2 million backing from George Soros

It’s like a harmonic convergence of progressive villains. Rachel Hinton of the Chicago Sun-Times reports:

A political action committee founded by liberal billionaire philanthropist — and Donald Trump nemesis — George Soros kicked $2 million to a committee supporting Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx in her re-election bid against three Democratic primary challengers.

A mega donor to Democrats and liberal causes, the hedge fund operator’s Democracy PAC transferred $2 million into the Illinois Justice and Public Safety PAC on Wednesday.
