Soros group fined $775,000

The biggest threat to freedom in America just had his group fined 3/4 of a million bucks. That threat is the gazillionaire leftist and anti-freedom advocate George Soros. It's not nearly enough of a fine in my opinion, but at least he got nailed.

From the Politico
The Federal Election Commission has fined one of the last cycle’s biggest liberal political action committees $775,000 for using unregulated soft money to boost John Kerry and other Democratic candidates during the 2004 elections.

America Coming Together (ACT) raised $137 million for its get-out-the-vote effort in 2004, but the FEC found most of that cash came through contributions that violated federal limits.

The group’s big donors included George Soros, Progressive Corp. chairman Peter Lewis and the Service Employees International Union.

The settlement, which the FEC approved unanimously, is the third largest enforcement penalty in the commission’s 33-year history

It wouldn't be the first criminal related action George Soros would be involved in. He was convicted of Inside trading in France. Say what you will about the French, but they'll always have a little respect from me for actually going after this guy.

Irony of ironies is that Soros spent 12 million bucks on the anti-free speech McCain/Feingold bill in an astroturf operation. He's also a major league gun grabber (Criminals support gun control, and he's no different) and hates capitalism. Maybe he's worried about competition and that one of the people he steps on may do something about it....

Add that to Fieger-time's illegal $127,000 money laundering operation for John Edwards and the Dems aren't having a good week on the "ethics" front.

Notice how little coverage it gets though when they can instead run an alleged homosexual through the mud.

I guess the whole compassion thing only extends to fellow Ds and the whole consistency thing only to their opponents running as Rs.

What a load of crap. The biggest threat to freedom in America is in the White House, and the only crime George Soros ever committed that you hate him for is trying to unseat him via the election. The only person who has restricted the personal freedoms of Americans is George Bush, and that’s a fact. This obsession with George Soros is ridiculous, especially when you ignore the biggest threat to freedom in America – behind bush of course - Richard Mellon Scaife. Nowhere does it say Soros did anything illegal, unethical or out of order.

Unlike Scaife, Soros is a Hungarian immigrant who fled the Nazi Holocaust with nothing but the clothes on his back and made his own fortune on his own with his own wits. Scaife, meanwhile, like Bush inherited his fortune, and he engages in the politics of personal destruction funding slimy stunts like the so-called Arkansas Project where he paid state troopers to make up stories about the President.

You also failed to mention the fine the most slimily of all the 527s received: the Smear boats vets that slimed me and every veteran who ever earned a medal in the armed forces.

Democrats had a bad week? Can you say Larry Craig?

Thanks KevinS. Your fiction is always very entertaining.

Really? If it’s fiction it should be pretty easy to spot and debunk. I noticed you did neither.
