Three progressive Virginia prosecutors won their primary contests Tuesday night thanks to continued financial support from billionaire George Soros.
Arlington-Falls Church Commonwealth Attorney Parisa Dehghani-Tafti won a decisive victory over primary challenger Josh Katcher after running a re-election campaign focused on “restorative justice” principles, such as ending cash bail and drug criminalization.
Fox News Digital reported it month that on June 8, two Soros-backed committees invested a total of more than $350,000 in two Virginia prosecutors, whom he helped elect four years ago, who were in danger of losing their seats in Democrat challengers at the elementary school on June 20.
Dehghani-Tafti received a combined $326,000 for her re-election.
Fairfax County Attorney Steve Descano, a progressive backed by $26,500 in Soros money this cycle, also won Tuesday night after defeating primary challenger Ed Nuttall by more than 10 points.

Descano, a far-left figure who has vowed to oppose any abortion restrictions passed through the legislative process in his state, has faced with criticism for his perceived soft-on-crime policies, including dropping charges against a career criminal who nearly killed a mother and her three children in a road rage incident.
In addition to Dehghani-Tafti and Descano, Loudoun County Prosecutor Buta Biberaj won against her primary opponent, Elizabeth Lancaster, by more than 10 points.

Biberaj, who is also backed by the vast network of George Soros, has slandered again and again since he started work in 2020. Last year, he faced a bar complaint after a circuit court judge booted his office from a criminal case for “intentionally misleading the Court and the public” and for hiring a convicted sex offender as a paralegal.
Biberaj was also booted over concerns about “impartiality” from a high-profile case that drew national attention. That case involved a father in Virginia who spoke at a school board meeting after his daughter was sexually assaulted in a public school bathroom by a male student.
CRIME EXPERTS RESPOND TO SOROS DEFENDING SUPPORT FOR PROGRESSIVE DAS AMID CRIME WAVE: ‘WORRIED’
“The major victories of the three Soros bought and paid for rogue prosecutors in northern Virginia are not surprising given the amount of direct and indirect spending by Soros PACs in these three races,” Cully Stimson, senior legal fellow at Heritage Foundation, told Fox News Digital. “Despite the fact that crime is rising in their counties because of their pro-criminal policies, low voter turnout, Soros bucks and lackluster primary opponents make the difference.”
Stimson, co-author with Heritage legal fellow Zack Smith of the upcoming book “Rogue Prosecutors: How Radical Soros Lawyers Are Destroying America’s Communities,” added that the real winners Tuesday night were the “career criminals .”
“The real losers in these three counties are the residents, who will now continue to suffer as victims, and the police, who are further demoralized because they don’t have a partner in the DA’s office,” he said.
