Virginia AG-elect Miyares seeks legal way to override 'social justice' DAs and 'do their job for them'

At a conferencia de prensa el jueves, Miyares presentado “una de nuestras principales iniciativas legislativas” que Youngkin “ya ha indicado que firmaría… convirtiéndose en ley.”

Bajo la ley actual, the AG’s office can prosecute a case on behalf of a commonwealth’s attorney – Virginia’s version of a district attorney (DA) – so long as the DA requests it.


The new billwould essentially say, if the chief law enforcement officer in a jurisdiction – either the chief of police or the sheriff – makes a request because a commonwealth’s attorney is not doing their job, then I’m going to do their job for them,” Miyares said. “I’m thinking specifically, some of the so-called ‘social justice’ commonwealth’s attorneys that have been elected particularly in Northern Virginia. We’re obviously aware of some pretty horrific caseswhere these DAs have not pursued justice.

Liberal billionaire George Soros has repeatedly poured thousands into prosecutor’s races in Virginia. En 2019, Soros provided a significant cash infusion to three winning progressive candidatos, Parisa Dehghani-Tafti in Arlington County (por poco $ 1 million from Soros); Buta Biberaj in Loudon County ($ 850,000 from Soros); and Steve Descano in Fairfax County ($ 600,000 from Soros). Soros spent about $ 200,000 in a prosecutor’s race in Norfolk this year. His candidate went on to win the race.

Biberaj sought jail time in the case of Scott Smith, the father of the girl who got sexually assaulted in a girlsrestroom in school. Smith had become enraged at a Loudoun County School Board meeting in which the superintendent denied that the assault had happened. He was convicted of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Soros has bankrolled numerous initiatives intending to overhaul the criminal justice system. Leonard Noisette, head of the Justice Team at Soros’s Open Society Foundations, dicho the network backs communities determiningwhat alternativesto policing make sense for them.

OSF supports the exploration and development of alternatives to current policing practices, and the Hub serves as a clearinghouse of ideas and resources to help advocates determine how best to improve police practices in their communities,” Noisette said. “We defer to communities regarding what alternatives make sense for them, including substantially shifting funding for the current approach to policing/law enforcement into services that address societal challenges while doing less harm.
