Billionaire George Soros again has stepped into the Harris County district attorney’s race with a half-million-dollar advertising buy on behalf of Democratic candidate Kim Ogg.
Last February, the liberal business-philanthropist—and Republican bogeyman—spent $100,000 in support of Ogg’s unsuccessful primary opponent Morris Overstreet.
The latest Soros contribution arrives just days after the Ogg campaign filed a quarterly finance report showing she received nearly $135,000 in campaign contributions from a PAC supported by Steve Mostyn, another major Democratic financier.
Incumbent Republican District Attorney Devon Anderson’s political consultant, Allan Blakemore, trumpeted the Soros ad buy, accusing Ogg of aligning forces seeking to buy the district attorney’s office.
“She has abandoned the values and standards of our community to become a puppet for those whose clear agenda is to corrupt the rule of law in Harris County,” Blakemore said.
