‘Menace to society’: DeSantis SLAMS Soros-backed prosecutors

Published in Blog on March 21, 2023 by Jakob Fay

Gov. Ron DeSantis minced no words describing the soft-on-crime, George Soros-backed prosecutor who reportedly may arrest former President Donald Trump over what DeSantis called a “manufactured circus.”

Late last week, Mr. Trump announced he believed he would be locked up on Tuesday in connection with an ongoing investigation into his hush-money payment to Stormy Daniels, a porn star with whom Trump allegedly had an affair in 2006. The District Attorney behind the investigation, Alvin Bragg, has been criticized for politicizing the case, which many see as an extension of the multi-year witch hunt against the former president and 2024 presidential candidate.

On Monday, Gov. DeSantis joined the public disapproval, bashing Bragg (who The Washington Post reports received money from George Soros during his 2021 campaign) for his politically-motivated prosecution.

“I’ve seen rumors swirl. I have not seen any facts yet,” DeSantis explained. “And so I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I do know this, the Manhattan district attorney, is a Soros-funded prosecutor. And so he, like other Soros-funded prosecutors, they weaponize their office to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety. He has downgraded over 50% of the felonies to misdemeanors. He says he doesn’t want to even have jail time for the vast, vast majority of crimes. And what we’ve seen in Manhattan, is we’ve seen the crime rate go up, and we’ve seen citizens become less safe.”

He pointed out that “the real victims are ordinary New Yorkers, ordinary Americans” who suffer in soft-on-crimes cities while the government chases after politically-profitable indictments. 

“They ignore crime, and they empower criminals…. And that hurts a lot of people every single day.”

“These Soros district attorneys are a menace to society,” the governor continued, “and I’m just glad that I’m the only governor in the country that’s actually removed one from office during my tenure.”

As the nation holds its breath, waiting to see how the Trump-Daniels case will unfold, one thing is clear: the level of partisanship in our government systems of justice today is simply unsustainable. The American people’s collective frustration is understandably high. They fear we now live in a nation that persecutes political opponents.

Thankfully, we know the peaceful solution to getting our government back on track. With an Article V Convention we can restore proper balance to the American system of governance and defuse the bitter tensions.

To join us in our efforts to save our Republic using the Constitution, sign the Convention of States petition below.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:
