On Wednesday, the prominent End Citizens United group made a crucial decision concerning the endorsement of the Senate seat to Doug Jones. The Democratic candidate has initially served the nation as an attorney. Doug is running against Roy Moore, and the election is scheduled for 12th December.
According to the PAC, Moore does not deserve the seat because he is selfish with ill intentions that do not guarantee his service to the nation. In a statement, the group stated valid reasons for standing by Doug. Describing Moore as an extremist, they were displeased by his track record of performance.
Tiffany Muller of End Citizens United cited that Moore has a radical agenda that does not fit the needs of Americans. Plainly stated, Tiffany went ahead to explain that he has an extreme ideology that poses as a contradiction to the values of Alabama and America. Tiffany explained that Moore would use big money in Washington to win the interests of the people politically. Having been an embarrassment to the people of Alabama, Moore and the wife have illegally pocketed about $ 1 million. These funds were made for a charity organization. Unlike Moore, Doug Jones was more of a straightforward person. His integrity speaks volumes about his intentions for Americans. For an attorney, Doug has an excellent track record as a prosecutor and a man who upholds character and value. He is not shaken by doing what is right for the people. He is likely to take the same stand as Congress.
On the same issue, Jones cited that the people of Alabama want to be on the same track with the people of Washington. To be able to bring the reforms about, Jones will dedicate himself to prioritizing their interests. The policies he will inject into the system after being elected will upend that broken system. Closely working with End Citizens United to ensure that this happens, Jones looks forward to curbing the corrosive and corrupt influence of big money in politics. End Citizens United added that Moore is directly linked to shady mega-donors whose dark money cannot be traced.

End Citizens United is a political action committee that seeks to stop the dark money era that runs politics in America. The organization was formed in 2015 after the ruling by the Supreme Court. That decision paved the way for this group as from that day, the court declared corporations as being of sound mind to stand for their rights just like humans. Since then, End Citizens United has worked diligently to attract more donors who support the great cause of put a stop to the dark money era. To this political activist group, Americans are defined by the quality of life their leaders present to them. To this end, it is a do or die situation to elect the right leaders for finance reforms.
George Soros, the 84-year old international philanthropist and business magnate, (net worth of $24.9 billion) has made a heavy financial investment in support of a pro-Hilary Clinton PAC. The eight million dollar grant, solidifies the fact that he has long been an advocate and supporter of the left- wing democratic ethos.
Born in Hungary and fleeing the his communist mother land for the United Kingdom in 1947, Soros educated himself at LSE (London School of Economics). In 1956, after numerous attempts to find good compensatory work, the young George Soros emigrated to the USA and started working as an arbitrage trader. His specialty was trading European stocks for US investors. Soros never looked back and grew multi million dollar investments from strength to strength finally setting up Soros Fund Management in 1970, and subsequently the Open Fund Society.
An avid believer in democracy and equality for all, where all people are entitled to have the freedoms and access to democracy, The Open Fund Society was founded to help people make the transition from communism to democracy. Today it is a network organisations working in over 100 nations worldwide. According to a latinofoxnews statement by George Soros he said “My success in the financial markets has given me a greater degree of independence than most other people. This allows me to take a stand on controversial issues: In fact, it obliges me to do so because others cannot.”
While the support of the Clinton campaign is not surprising, what is surprising is that Soros has also supported the Republican party candidate Kasich. According to the FEC (Federal Election Commission), Kasich has received in excess of four hundred thousand US dollars for his “New Day For America” PAC fund. Moreover, it has been further reported that the funds were received by the “New Day For America” campaign through two of Soro’s former employees Scott Bessent and Stanley Druckenmiller.
With all the world’s eyes on the 2016 presidential campaign, Soro’s vicarious support of Republican candidate Kasich has more raised more than a few right-wing conservative eyebrows. With the burning question: Why this turn from George Soros who has characteristically always supported the ilk of the democratic party and those with progressive mind-sets. The pattern has been interrupted by this open support of the Republican party candidate Kasich. Soros was recently quoted by NY books saying:
“We must reaffirm our commitment to the principles of open society and resist the siren song of the likes of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, however hard that may be”.
Looking at the current trend, the theory to thwart Trump winning more delegates may well be at the forefront of the Soro support. With Kasich looking strong in Ohio, Rubio’s campaign has been slated to realign his supporters to Kasich in an attempt to deny Trump winning more delegates.
