On Friday, Sen. Jeff Flake was confronted by a woman who claimed she was sexually assaulted, and his support of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh was the equivalent of saying their abuse did not matter. Video of the confrontation is included below.
The incident caused Flake to demand the FBI investigate the sexual assault claims against Kavanaugh before he would vote him out of committee and before the full Senate.
Now, it has been learned that the woman who initially confronted Flake heads an organization funded by George Soros.
Ana María Archila is the co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy Action, a group that is part of Soros’ nationwide anti-Trump efforts, it also has the support of a leading Democrat accused of beating his former girlfriend.
On Monday, I was with the organization that I co-lead, the Center for Popular Democracy Action, and hundreds of people from across the country who came to D.C. to urge their senators to vote no on the Kavanaugh nomination.
I had the opportunity to confront Flake on Friday. I reminded him that I had told my story in front of his office earlier in the week. I asked him how he could live with himself, as a father of a daughter, knowing that Kavanaugh allegedly violated a young girl.
In this time, we need a Supreme Court justice who is truly committed to justice. To the hard work of recognizing, understanding, and then repairing hurt. Someone who is willing to take responsibility for their past actions and do better in the future. That someone is not Brett Kavanaugh.
Through all of our interaction, Jeff Flake was silent. Then, he went missing from the meeting. He came back later and said that he could not vote for Kavanaugh on the Senate floor until after an FBI investigation.
His reaction shows the power that we have, together, when we chose to tell our stories and stand up for our vision of an inclusive society. When we take action, we breathe new life and possibility into our democracy.
The Washington Free Beacon, reports that the organization is a nationwide anti-Trump group that is primarily funded by George Soros’ foundation.
Even worse, one of its primary supporters is Keith Ellison, who has recently been accused of physical abuse by his former girlfriend.
The Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund, the 501(c)(4) sister organization of the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), a New York-based nonprofit that receives the bulk of its funding from George Soros, announced at their spring gala Tuesday that they will be heading up the new $80 million anti-Trump network that will span 32 states and have 48 local partners, CNN reported.
The network will seek to mobilize new voters and fight voter identification laws. It will also focus on gerrymandering and automatic voter registration programs with an eye on the 2018 and 2020 election cycles.
Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, backed the new effort.
“This national network, led by working class people of color and immigrants, will supply the power and the fight we need to resist the Trump administration’s all-out assault on American values,” Ellison told CNN. “I look forward to standing with CPD Action’s leaders in the streets and in Congress to win real progressive change.”
The Center for Popular Democracy, which was founded in 2012, consists of old chapters of ACORN, the community-organizing group that was forced to close after being stripped of its federal funds following controversy in 2010.
