Virginia Prosecutors Backed by Soros to Face Recall Trials

A nonprofit organization has launched an effort to recall three prosecutors in Virginia who were financially backed by George Soros and have implemented policies that favor criminals and reduce law enforcement capabilities, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

The group, Virginians for Safe Communities (VSC), is going after prosecutors in the Northern Virginia suburbs that immediately surround Washington, D.C.: Buta Biberaj in Loudoun County, Parisa Dehghani-Tafti in Arlington County, and Steve Descano in Fairfax County. All three of them were elected in 2020 after the far-left billionaire had spent over $2 million to support all three of their campaigns.

Since taking office, they have all sought to reverse laws that impose harsher penalties on criminal behavior. Descano ordered his office in December to stop seeking cash bail, falsely calling it “racially biased.” As a result, homicides in Fairfax County more than doubled on Descano’s watch. In Arlington, felony aggravated assaults rose by 40 percent, while Biberaj dismissed hundreds of domestic violence cases in Loudoun County.

VSC is currently working on gathering signatures from registered voters for each petition to recall the prosecutors. If the number of signatures matches at least ten percent of the total number of votes cast in the last election, then the prosecutor(s) in question would face a recall trial by jury, rather than an election, to determine if they should be removed from office.

“These rogue prosecutors’ dangerous policies are costing lives, re-victimizing victims, and undermining the public’s faith in our justice system,” said VSC President Sean Kennedy in a statement. “It ends now.”

Soros’ efforts to undermine the United States, particularly by weakening its law enforcement capabilities, have been well-documented. He has previously donated millions to other far-left prosecutors who are subsequently lenient on most crime, including Kim Foxx in Chicago, Kim Gardner in St. Louis, and Larry Krasner in Philadelphia. These and other far-left prosecutors have subsequently refused to prosecute many of the rioters, looters, and other domestic terrorists who ravaged dozens of cities across the country during last year’s race riots.
