A report in the Washington Free Beacon newspaper chronicles a partnership Perez has with one of the top money-men behind the pro-abortion movement in the United States, George Soros.
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 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.
