Representative Elaine Luria, who slammed Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin as being anti-Semitic for referencing George Soros, has received tens of thousands of dollars from Soros-linked PACs.
Glenn Youngkin, the Republican gubernatorial candidate for the upcoming election in Virginia, discussed this week the “present chaos” in Virginia schools, with parents standing up against school boards pushing anti-white critical race theory, and other leftist ideologies on children. Youngkin said the blame for this laid “squarely at the feet” of his opponent Terry McAuliffe, but also “George Soros-backed allies” in the “left liberal progressive movement, [who have] inserted political operatives into our school system disguised as school boards.”
Representative Elaine Luria, the Democrat who currently holds Virginia’s 2nd District in the US House, claimed that Youngkin was being anti-Semitic for even bringing up George Soros, despite his clear and obvious funding of leftist political actors.
“I call it out in my own party and I’m calling it out now,” Luria tweeted. “Evoking George Soros as a shadowy funder is an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. This is an unacceptable statement from Glenn Youngkin.”

However, Matt Wolking, the Communications Director for Youngkin, pointed out that Luria had received tens of thousands of dollars from PACs linked to Soros.
Wolking higlighted that Soros himself gave $5,000 to PAC TO THE FUTURE, which later gave $5,000 to Luria’s campaign. For her 2018 campaign, Luria received “tens of thousands of dollars” from the SWING LEFT PAC, after Soros donated $50,000 to the organization.
Youngkin will face former Virginia Gov. and Clinton administration scandal-generator Terry McAuliffe this November to determine the state’s next governor.

“Elaine Luria uses her Jewish heritage like Democrats use blacks when they race bait,” said Jarome Bell, who is running for the Republican nomination as an America First candidate to challenge Luria in 2022.
“Typical Democrat. She’s a Soros puppet. Didn’t Soros help round up the jewels of the Jewish of the Holocaust with the Nazis?” Bell further added that Luria would “do anything to take an intelligent Black Conservative man down like my black life doesn’t matter.”
Bell had previously slammed Luria for joining the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 protests on Capitol Hill, telling National File she needs to be “investigated for treason and participating in a coup against the duly elected President of the United States,” and that “her participation on this committee shows she doesn’t represent the people, but only Nancy Pelosi and her puppet masters.”
