Soros, Hungarian billionaire and Democratic megadonor, spent more than $800,000 on a race to keep Sandra Doorley from being elected District Attorney for Monroe County, New York. Doorley still crushed her George Soros-backed challenger Shani Curry Mitchell Tuesday night.
“State BOE (Board of Elections) records show the New York Justice & Public Safety PAC responsible for more than $800,000 worth of television and digital advertisements opposing incumbent Republican DA Sandra Doorley or supporting her challenger Shani Curry Mitchell. Soros is listed as the sole donor for what’s technically classified as an Independent Expenditure Committee in New York,” reported Spectrum News on October 22.

Local radio host Bob Lonsberry commented on the matter weeks before the race: “If you took all the money Democratic Monroe County executive candidate Adam Bello has spent on his campaign, and added all the money Republican incumbent Cheryl DiNolfo has spent, and added in Bello’s money again, you’d have just about as much money as George Soros has spent trying to get Shani Curry Mitchell elected district attorney,” Lonsberry outlined in a column for News Radio Wham 1180, noting that Soros is looking to “decriminalize crime.”
USA Today reporter Jon Campbell deemed the Soros money-dump a complete backfire.
The $800K of Soros-funded ads appear to have backfired in the Monroe County DA race.

During her victory speech, Doorley “thanked” Mr. Soros for her win. “The Republican Party in Monroe Country is not dead, and we are alive and well,” said the DA. “And look at all the great people, here. We still have the energy and we will be back. And I am back for another four more years, so, thank you, George Soros!”
