Soros-linked group to spend $5 million to defeat Kavanaugh nomination

A liberal advocacy group that has received significant funding from George Soros has pledged to spend $5 million to defeat the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

The web of organizations spearheading the effort known as Demand Justice, which is financed by a 501(c)(4) called the Sixteen Thirty Fund, includes the Open Society Policy Center (OSPC), “one of Soros’ primary donation vehicles, between 2012 and 2016.”

Daily Caller:

The Fund is largely financed by a handful of donors. Financial statements filed with state oversight officials in 2014 show just three contributors accounted for 70 percent – or some $11.5 million – of the Fund’s total donations and grant revenue.  Disclosure forms filed with the same agency in 2016 present similar facts.  Fewer than five donors gave $13.3 million to the Fund, representing 63 percent of their donations.

One of those donors is the OSPC.  The Center’s tax forms show the Soros group gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Fund each year between 2012 and 2016, the last year in which records are publicly accessible.  The Center gave the Fund $350,000 in 2012; $772,000 in 2013; $125,000 in 2014; $550,000 in 2015; and $481,483 in 2016.
