Would Alvin Bragg be wrecking Manhattan if the voters had known about this before the election?
A disturbing allegation against Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg during the primary led a George Soros-backed political action committee, Color Of Change, to pull a half-million dollars in funding from his campaign last spring, DailyMail.com can now reveal.
The fact that any allegation led them to do that is unexpected. Joe Biden had a serious sexual assault allegation lodged against him and everyone just kept on going. It took multiple allegations to derail Franken and Cuomo. Keith Ellison survived two allegations.
(Soros personally made a point of bemoaning Franken’s resignation and attacking Democrats who urged him to step down.)
Did Color of Change have an attack of conscience or were they assuming that the story would come out and sink Bragg anyway?
The group was just ramping up its efforts in May, reaching out to New York City voters, when a woman on the list made a serious allegation against Bragg, 48, multiple sources told DailyMail.com.
‘It threw a wrench into the PAC that was just gearing up,’ one source said.
The woman shared her allegation via text message, according to a source inside Color Of Change.
‘Color Of Change PAC responded to her initial message, but did not receive any further communications, so had no basis to evaluate the credibility of her allegation,’ that source said.
That’s strange and implausible.
I don’t see COC pulling a big push for Bragg because of a one-time text message that wasn’t even backed up. Unless the woman’s name along invested the allegation with a whole lot of credibility. In other words this wasn’t just “someone” on the list. But “Someone”.
DA Bragg told DailyMail.com, responding the claim, ‘I have held myself to the highest standards my entire life and the suggestion that I did something disturbing is patently false.’
Something “disturbing”. That’s a vague thing to deny unless you know exactly what it is you’re denying.
A source familiar with the allegation told DailyMail.com that he finds it hard to believe the political action committee would cut its funding to Bragg without vetting the allegation, at least a little bit.
‘I think they made a really ugly decision to semi-absolve themselves by dropping him without making any sort of announcement.’
And made sure to keep it quiet, protecting themselves instead of protecting New Yorkers. But isn’t that what pro-crime policies are all about?
