Who is funding the efforts to get ex-felons registered to vote in Virginia?
Apparently it’s the George Soros-funded Tides Foundation.
The foundation has long supported felony rights restoration by writing large checks to groups that work with states to register former felons.
In the past, the foundation set up the Civic Participation Fund, which was aimed at aiding social-change organizations focused in new-majority communities that “need money, and need it fast,” the Tides website says.
The fund, formerly known as the Voter Action Fund, granted more than $8 million to advocacy groups “working to address the legal, procedural, and technological barriers to electoral participation.”
