Four years ago the Democratic
Party was in disarray after failing to reclaim
the White House and Congress despite record
contributions by high-dollar donors.
George Soros and other wealthy liberals
decided they had the answer to the party’s
problems. They formed a secretive donors’
collaborative to fund a permanent political
infrastructure of nonprofi t think tanks, media
outlets, leadership schools, and activist
groups to compete with the conservative
movement. Called the Democracy Alliance
(DA), Soros and his colleagues put their imprimatur
on the party and the progressive
movement by steering hundreds of millions
of dollars to liberal nonprofi ts they favored.
The Democracy Alliance helped Democrats
give Republicans a shellacking in November.
Now it’s organizing state-level chapters
in at least 19 states, and once-conservative
Colorado, which hosts the Democracy Alliance’s
most successful state affi liate, has
turned Democrat blue. Moreover, the DAfunded
“Secretary of State Project” has
helped elect the chief electoral offi cials in
nine states. Critics worry that a secretary
of state sympathetic to the aims of ACORN,
the radical community organizing group,
will open to door to vote fraud.
