Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot’s campaign was boosted across the finish line with the help of over $400,000 of support from far left-wing megadonor George Soros, according to recent campaign finance reports.
In the final campaign finance report released before election day, Creuzot noted three separate “in-kind” donations from the Texas Justice & Public Safety PAC in October alone.
The donations, totaling $408,219, covered the costs for “door-to-door canvassing, staff fees, travel fees,” mailouts, advertising, and polling.
Texas Justice & Public Safety, based in Washington, D.C., received at least $1.75 million from George Soros in 2022, who is functionally their only donor. Soros has poured over $3.6 million into the endeavor throughout the organization’s life.
In recent years, the organization has backed the election of several far-left district attorneys in Texas, including José Garza in Travis County, Brian Middleton in Fort Bend County, Joe Gonzalez in Bexar County, and Creuzot.
Soros defended his massive donations to far-left prosecutors across the county, claiming that “the most rigorous academic study, analyzing data across 35 jurisdictions, shows no connection between the election of reform-minded prosecutors and local crime rates.”
“I have supported the election…of prosecutors who support reform. I have done it transparently, and I have no intention of stopping,” he continued. “The funds I provide enable sensible reform-minded candidates to receive a hearing from the public.”
Others disagree with Soros, and a study, conducted in 2021 by the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund, suggested that crime rates rose significantly in jurisdictions with a Soros-funded district attorney.
Specifically, the study claimed that “In his short tenure, Creuzot has lost or dropped 20% more felony cases than his predecessors and attained a significantly lower conviction rate for violent and serious crimes as well.”
Creuzot was not the only Texas candidate receiving funds from Soros, and the megadonor also recently donated $1.5 million to Robert “Beto” O’Rourke’s campaign against incumbent Greg Abbott.
The unofficial final vote count released by the Dallas County Elections Department showed that the incumbent district attorney received just over 59% of ballots while challenger Faith Johnson earned nearly 41%. Creuzot underperformed other Democrats in the blue stronghold, however, as O’Rourke garnered nearly 63% of the vote.
Creuzot has received significant pushback against several of his policies from activist groups in Dallas, arguing that he is partially responsible for the significant increase in crime during his tenure. For his part, however, Creuzot has brushed off these accusations and instead blamed reporting conducted by The Dallas Express for generating criticism of his policies.
Soros needs to be branded an enemy of America. Emigrees. Not all have our country’s best interest at heart.
You mean like Robert Murdoch? He is an emigree from Australia. Not all have our country’s best interest at heart– he supported Trump and his traitorous insurrection. How about branding him “an enemy of America”?
Wrong again JIM, Murdoch is Fox News an and enemy of Trump, wake up Jim and get your story straight. name is Rupert
So? Rupert supported Trump for a long, long time. Regardless, if Soros, as an emigrant, should somehow be branded “an enemy of America”, then so should Rupert for meddling in our politics, right? Unless it is all about rightwing hypocrisy, of course.
Or the Koch brothers. Soros would be shown in a very different light by this article were he donating to Re”bum”licans. Where is the so called “balanced” reporting. I see no details in this article of where his opponent received her funds.
The high crime rate in Dallas County is entirely due to the lax prosecution of crimes by the ultra liberal Creuzot! But Dallas County deserves who they voted for!
If the citizens want better prosecution of crimes, we must get rid of this liberal icon.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t just affect Dallas. It affects the whole county.
Decent people tried but the criminals really love their $750 freebies!
The radical right wanted Citizens United for all that dark money to flow to political campaigns. Don’t like it when it doesn’t flow your way? I drink your tears. Maybe Creuzot isn’t putting innocent people behind bars just to boost his conviction rate as previous DAs have done.
You mean like refusing to allow the death penalty on a serial killer? That scum murdered 22 helpless, elderly people. The weakest of society. Had the perpetrator been white, I fear his decision would have had a different outcome. Flow our way? Justice needs to be served to protect society. Yup, backed by Soros along with all the thieves and murderers. What a fan base. And I guarantee you, the VAST majority of those behind bars deserve to be there. In today’s dangerous society, a high conviction rate would not be difficult. The hardworking, honest of society deserve to be protected, not the criminals.
God said, “THOU SHALT NOT KILL””. But I suppose you think he’s a right wing also? Well, we have an unbeatable force on our side who will have the final judgement . Soros is but a grain of sand in a world full of beaches.
Don must have read the DA’s report on all those felony cases not brought to court. You are our watchdog!
Great Point! You are so right!
I doubt that many who voted for Creuzot even know who George Soros is. Too many liberals are simply uninformed voters.
So long as the person has “D” next to their name on the ballot, then the vote is cast.
I know candidates with a “D” are not in the party that condones an insurrectionist attack on the Capitol, hates democracy, takes away women’s rights, makes it a policy of being cruel to immigrants and to bully LGBQT kids, and to mindlessly “own the libs”.
Creuzot works for whoever pays the most, in this case Soros. Creuzot even sounds like all district attorneys funded by Soros. Dallas county should offer more than Soros for Creuzot to do the right thing.
Don’t you love how the demofascists cleverly ensconce their agendas in organizations named for what sounds good and righteous but functions in fundamental opposition?
Yes and there are plenty of rich people that support the GOP. Rupert Murdoch and his entire family are good examples. They don’t need to be branded enemies of the state.
Some of you uneducated people shouldn’t be allowed to vote.
Soros is the most EVIL man in the Western Hemisphere bar none!!!!! Criminal Justice will be fleeting as long as this slithering butt wipe remains in office!!! 🤬
So you can put a rightwing butt wipe in office?
If he did not have Soros’ backing I wonder if he would have won anyway?
Dallas , not really a Texas city any longer, more aligned with NYC and LA, what a sham and a sham.
Dallas is a cesspool where the criminals run rampant. Glad we don’t own a store. Of course we’ll pay more at stores where we shop because of the underclass stealing.
Creuzot is a menace to decent society. Criminals: enjoy your $750 discount for theft of merchandise. You can always claim you wanted the clothes or jewelry for your baby, or to fend so you can buy diapers.
[…] don’t need to tell you that Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot is backed by George Soros, do […]
One thing for sure, the fact that Soros has invested in it gives us a clear vision of what the future will be. Examples like NYC, Chicago, San Francisco, LA & Philadelphia all have increasing crime statistics yet significantly lower prosecutions and incarcerations. Maybe we should be calling Soros, Nostradamus!!
Soros is destroying this country city by city with his relentless DA funding.
