Senator Jeff Flake was accosted by a victim. Or was that what really happened... a CNN camera just happened to be there. Sure.


Here are some other things the FBI might look into. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) was confronted in an elevator by a woman named Ana Maria Archila. She claimed to have been sexually abused as a child but never told her parents. A CNN camera just happened to broadcast the moment live.

Archila is the executive director for the Center for Popular Democracy, a liberal nonprofit advocacy group, which has received funding from the Open Society Foundations, underwritten by liberal activist George Soros, and the Democracy Alliance in which Soros is a member. Could Soros be behind this smear of Kavanaugh?

The Center for Popular Democracy (CPD) was originally established in 2012. On January 1, 2014 the Leadership Center for the Common Good merged with, and became part of, CPD. A leading backer of that merger was AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, who said at the time: “The new, expanded Center for Popular Democracy is a vitally important addition to the social justice landscape … aggressively innovating and replicating public policies that expand rights and opportunities for workers, for immigrants, and for people of color.”

Composed, in part, of old local chapters of the now-defunct national community organization ACORN, CPD views the United States as a nation “suffering an acute crisis of democracy, opportunity and equality”; a country where “workers are earning less and are increasingly insecure”; where “wage theft is rampant”; where “too many workers must cobble together irregular, part-time jobs without benefits”; and where the decline of private-sector unionization has left “workers and their broader economic opportunity in jeopardy.”

Among CPD’s more noteworthy partner organizations are the AFL-CIO, the American Federation of Teachers, the American Friends Service Committee, CASA de Maryland, the Center for Community Change, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, Demos, the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, the Progressive States Network, and the Service Employees International Union.

Key funders of CPD’s work include the Bauman Family Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Mertz Gilmore Foudation, the New York Community Trust, the Public Welfare Foundation, and the Surdna Foundation.

As of mid-2014, CPD had 38 staffers on its payroll and maintained offices in New York City and Washington, DC.

CPD derives the bulk of its funding from the billionaire philanthropist George Soros.


They funded the travel of 9 Bowdoin Students to Washington last week to "show solidarity" and get arrested. 7 were pliable freshmen.
