George Soros, the billionaire financier is under an investigation for funneling nearly 3.4 million dollars into a campaign solely aimed at taking down Boris Johnson.
The conservative political party in Britain has called for an urgent Electoral Commission probe into Soro’s American organizations after The Mail revealed that it funneled a large amount of money into a campaign purposely trying to block Brexit when it came to the ballot box.
New York-based Open Society Foundation sent the funds to the Best for Britain group through a London outpost, avoiding the ban of foreign donations to political organizations.
More from Daily Mail:
Best for Britain (BfB) has designed a website telling people how to vote tactically for Remain-backing candidates, which, if successful, would wipe out Mr. Johnson’s hopes of a majority.
The development comes after Liberal Democrats, the Green Party and Plaid Cymru formed a ‘Unite To Remain’ pact not to stand against each other in 60 seats, to give the best chance of a Remain candidate getting in.
BfB describes itself as a ‘fellow traveler’ with the alliance, which is expected to utilize its data.
Since 2017, BfB has received £2.7 million from Mr. Soros’s foundation. The sums have been revealed in the accounts of the foundation’s London branch, which shares an office building in Westminster with other anti-Brexit organizations, including Open Britain and the European Movement.
Both of these groups have played a critical role in the People’s Vote campaign for a second referendum.
