I was aware that Dan Maffei had been the beneficiary of radical leftist George Soros, but not Scott Murphy. Then, when looking at a recent press release by Chris Gibson's campaign, I noticed that J Street PAC was Murphy's third largest donor with over $41,000 in donations.
Conservative blogger Yid with Lid released the details last month showing a copy of J Street's tax filing with George Soros as one of the top donors; a third of their revenues to be exact.
Streets leader, Jeremy Ben-Ami has always claimed that Soros gave the group some start-up money, but has not received any money since. That was a lie.
Tax forms I provided to Mr. Lake, reveal that Mr. Soros and his two children, Jonathan and Andrea Soros, contributed a total $245,000 to J Street from one Manhattan address in New York during the fiscal year from July 1, 2008 to June 30, 2009 (see the document embedded below: page 13)
Soro's contributions represent a third of the group's revenue from U.S. sources during the period. Another donor, named Consolacion Esdicul. provided nearly half of J-Streets revenues during the period.
The billionaire George Soros is certainly not representative of NY 20th congressional district, nor their small businesses. In fact, in an interview, George Soros claimed that he was having a wonderful crisis, while the US economy tanked.
What's worse? The other major donor to J Street is China. Last time I checked, China was also not representative of NY-20.
It all fits in line with the fact that Scott Murphy is the number one leadership PAC recipient. So much for your Washington outsider image Scott!
