Soros-Backed Virginia Prosecutor Loses After Final Votes Counted

A Virginia prosecutor backed by leftist billionaire George Soros has lost after final votes have been tallied.

Loudoun Country Commonwealth Attorney Buta Biberaj lost to Republican Bob Anderson by 300 votes, according to the end results of the vote.

"This is the closest Commonwealth’s Attorney’s race in Loudoun history. Following the canvass process, Buta trails by just 300 votes out of more than 136,000 votes cast," Shannon Sankey, Biberaj's campaign manager, told Fox 5.

"This 0.22% deficit puts our campaign well within the margin for a recount in Virginia. Our campaign is reviewing the results and we expect to make a decision shortly on our next steps. Buta remains committed to protecting democratic rights and ensuring that every Loudoun resident’s vote is counted," she added.

"Biberaj faced criticism from both parties during her first term as commonwealth’s attorney in Loudoun County, particularly for her decision to divert low-level misdemeanors and nonviolent charges to police for prosecution rather than involving the commonwealth’s attorney’s office," the Virginia Mercury reported.

"While she defended the move as necessary to allow the office to focus on violent crimes, critics accused her of allowing crimes to go unpunished," it continued.

The controversy could continue if the recount moves forward, delaying the certification for an even longer period.

Biberaj has received nearly $1 million in funding from Soros-related organizations since 2019.

The loss shows that even higher funding for a campaign is not always enough to secure a win, especially in the controversial Loudoun County area.

The outcome is seen as good news for conservatives who are excited to see a Republican fill the spot long held by the left.
