Sarah Elfreth to Raise Money with Soros-backed DC Group
Democratic State Senate Candidate Sarah Elfreth will be raising money this Thursday at an event hosted by the founder of a group closely linked with radical left-wing billionaire George Soros.
Elfreth will hold her fundraiser this Thursday, January 4th in Washington, DC and it will be keynoted by Jimmy Dahman, the founder of the Town Hall Project. That group pushes for members of Congress to hold town hall meetings with their constituents.
The Town Hall Group, however, is not just a group of “concerned citizens.” It is part of the interconnected web of organizations that all lead back to George Soros, as the Free Beacon reported last year:
A group serving as a central hub of information for congressional town halls was founded by a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer and its parent company is located at the same address as an organization funded by liberal billionaire George Soros….
….The Town Hall Project, a group that serves as a one-stop shop of information for town hall protests across the country, is connected to a former Clinton staffer and is also closely affiliated with a number of liberal groups.
The group, which has been referenced by media outlets on numerous occasions, bills itself as a “volunteer-powered, grassroots effort that empowers constituents across the country to have face-to-face conversations with their elected representatives.”
Jimmy Dahman, a former field organizer for the Clinton campaign in Iowa, founded the Town Hall Project. Dahman claimed on CNN that the town hall events are “all organic and happening at the grassroots level.”
Dahman’s group is closely involved with MoveOn.org, a major progressive activist group that recently launched a website, called ResistanceRecess.com, to encourage activists to attend town hall events.
The Town Hall Project’s parent company is The Action Network, which was involved in demonstrations against Walmart and the protests in Ferguson.
The Action Network’s board of directors includes Mark Fleischman, a former vice president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU); Brian Young, who worked on campaigns for Howard Dean and John Kerry; Jeffrey Dugas, who worked for John Podesta’s Center for American Progress and Elizabeth Warren’s 2012 Senate campaign; and Rich Clayton, who worked for the SEIU and the shareholder activism arm of Change to Win, a labor group that describes itself as a “strategic organizing center.”
The Action Network is located at the same Washington, D.C., address as United We Dream, the “largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation.” United We Dream has received funding from liberal billionaire George Soros. It began organizing “sanctuary campus” anti-Trump protests shortly after the election.
Elfreth is running as a Democratic candidate for State Senate in District 30, running to replace State Senator John Astle.
Elfreth is hardly the first candidate to run for the General Assembly in District 30 with counting on out-of-state, Soros connected money to elect them to office. In 2010, Judd Legum raised tens of thousands of dollars from Soros-connected donors outside of Maryland in his run for the House of Delegates. Legum ultimately finished dead last in that race of six candidates.
It is unknown if Elfreth will follow Legum’s lead in being a Maryland candidate bought and paid for by left-wing Washington insiders. The campaign finance reports are due January 17th.
