Billionaire George Soros has increased donations to a progressive group dedicated to packing the Supreme Court.
Soros’ funding indicates progressives remain determined to reshape the high court, The Washington Free Beacon reported.
Open Society Foundations, a nonprofit financed by Soros, gave $4.5 million to Demand Justice to “support policy advocacy on court reform” during fiscal year 2021, tax filings show.
That amount nearly was double the $2.5 million Soros gave to Demand Justice in 2018, when it formed to oppose Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
Demand Justice’s website says the group is “working to restore balance to the courts by reforming the Supreme Court, expanding the circuit and district courts, and championing new judges with experience as public defenders, civil rights lawyers, legal aid lawyers, and labor lawyers who represent working people.”
