Obama Appointee Manages Soros-Backed Election Fund
An Obama administration appointee manages a fund that liberal billionaire George Soros uses to bankroll election-related activities like increasing the number of “voters of color” and “improving odds” of electing preferred candidates, actions that are discussed in recently released hacked documents.
Karen Narasaki, a commissioner of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, manages the Soros-backed Shelby Response Fund. The fund’s objective is “protecting voting rights in states formerly covered under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act.”
A document uncovered by the group DC Leaks reveals the plans of Soros’s Open Society Foundations that are geared primarily toward minority voters.
“The focus of the portfolio, going forward, will be on voters of color—reducing barriers and fighting suppressive measures which impede access to the polls, increasing ease of registration and access to early voting, and improving odds of electing candidates of choice,” the document states. “We will also fund affirmative election reform measures that have been shown to better benefit people of color (i.e. same-day registration and early voting.)”
