The friends of George Soros

One of the big winners last week wasn't on any ballot: George Soros. He has some very well-placed friends in the forthcoming power structure in America.

The Capital Research Center highlights a 2004 letter on Rep. Barney Frank's website offering support for Soros in the face of "McCarthyite attacks that have been made on you by some American politicians, including colleagues of ours, who have gone far beyond the reasonable bounds of civil discourse in their efforts to discredit you."


The signatories include some very prominent names these days:

Representatives Frank, Rosa DeLauro (D-Connecticut), James McGovern (D-Massachusetts), Howard Berman (D-California), Rahm Emanuel (D-Illinois), John F. Tierney (D-Massachusetts), Edward Markey (D-Massachusetts), Diana DeGette (D-Colorado), George Miller (D-California), William Delahunt (D-Massachusetts), and Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio).

As the CRC notes, this is the same George Soros

"who compared the Bush administration to the Nazis. Soros also implied that President George W. Bush is responsible for killing "thousands of innocent civilians." Soros also funded the sham study that vastly overstated casualties in Iraq."
