Wouldn't you give $73,800 to Democrats shortly after graduating from college? Alexander Soros did

Alexander Soros “has the means” and he has no hesitation about using it mostly on behalf of liberal Democrats in 2010, according to a new campaign funding analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics.

“In the run up to the 2010 midterm elections, Soros joins a handful of young, emerging political heavyweights, many of whom are related to other prolific political donors,” reports the center's Lauren Hepler in a report posted on the OpenSecrets blog.

“And they’re helping tip the scales toward Democrats in the competition for students’ campaign cash, the Center’s analysis indicates,” Hepler said.

“The Democratic National Committee has obliterated the competition in funding from students this election cycle, accumulating $428,600 from student contributors nationwide.

“The Republican National Committee, the highest-ranking of any GOP-affiliated group, has received only $18,400 from student contributors — roughly one-twentieth of the DNC’s haul.”

Soros, son of the world-famous George Soros, Democratic power-broker extraordinaire and funder of multiple major left-wing organizations, is not quite totally sold on the Democrats this year, though.

“Although I am disappointed in the Democratic Party and with our political process in general, there is no question in my mind that the country — and the world — will be better off if Democrats keep control,” Soros told Helpler.

The young Soros is absolutely appalled by the Tea Party movement, telling Hepler that “for me, the Tea Party is a movement of intolerance … My donations will help to combat this intolerance, I hope.”
