Figures! Tom Perez has deep ties to Obama’s puppet master George Soros
It’s no surprise to me that Obama would nominate a left wing radical to a cabinet position like Tom Perez. Now that I’ve read the Washington Free Beacon‘s revelation that Tom Perez has deep ties to Obama’s puppet master George Soros, it makes even more sense.
Prior to running for office, Perez was the president of CASA de Maryland, a Latino advocacy group that admittedly served immigrants regardless of legal status.
The group attracted financial support of George Soros and Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela after Perez’s tenure as president ended. CASA received more than $750,000 from groups linked to the billionaire hedge fund manager, as well as $1.5 million from Citgo, the state-owned oil company that helped make the socialist dictator a billionaire.
Perez’s ties to far-left groups did not surprise labor watchdogs such as Fred Wszolek, spokesman for the Workforce Fairness Institute.
Perez received thousands of dollars in consulting fees for his work with the Public Health Institute, a nonprofit group that has received $260,000 from George Soros’ Open Societies Foundation. Perez consulted for the California Endowment between 2001 and 2009; the group is interested in expanding insurance coverage to low-income earners, including immigrants.
As expected, the GOP is starting out with it’s big talk from David Vitter threatening to hold up Perez’s confirmation. But as we’ve seen with Hagel, Brennan and Lew, that’s all the GOP is. They may talk a good game, but always cave in the end. I suspect Perez will be confirmed with at least 80 votes.
