Soros fundraiser being held for 'independent' Kansas Senate candidate Greg Orman

There are some serious people, including the normally insightful Pat Caddell, who see Greg Orman as a breath of fresh air, a truly independent man who will take us beyond the dysfunction of the current two parties. Enough Kansas voters tell pollsters they are supporting him that he may win.

But others (including me) see him as a faux independent. The Democratic Party persuaded its own candidate top step aside, in order to concentrate anti-Pat Roberts sentiment behind Orman. That’s pretty persuasive in itself. But now comes further evidence that big money insiders don’t believe that Orman is anything other than a reliable source of support for the progressive agenda. The  Washington Free Beacon reports:

Jonathan Soros, son of billionaire Democratic donor George Soros, will host a New York City fundraiser this week for Orman, who is running as an independent candidate, according to an invitation obtained by America Rising.

Though he is less famous than his billionaire father, the acorn has not fallen far from the tree:

In addition to the $3.7 million the younger Soros has donated to Democratic candidates, committees, and interest groups, Jonathan is a highly active member of the secretive Democracy Alliance, a hub of Democratic fundraising.

The fundraising consultancy managing the event, the Katz Watson Group, represents a who’s-who of Democratic organizations and individuals, including the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Hillary Clinton for President Exploratory Committee.
