The Pennsylvania House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to impeach George Soros-funded Philadelphia district attorney Larry Krasner.
Krasner, who was first elected in 2017, won reelection in 2021 with the help of a $1.7 million boost from billionaire leftist financier Soros’s Justice and Public Safety PAC. During his tenure as district attorney, he has reformed Philadelphia’s bail laws, overseen fewer convictions, and seen higher recidivism rates. Crime is skyrocketing in the city.
The Republican-led state House passed seven articles of impeachment against Krasner, advancing his impeachment trial to the GOP-led state Senate. The GOP will need six additional Democrat votes to reach the two-thirds vote required to convict Krasner.
Pennsylvania Rep. Martina White, a Philadelphia-based Republican who introduced the articles of impeachment, criticized Krasner for his “dereliction of duty”: “Larry Krasner is the top law enforcement official who is supposed to be representing the interests of our Commonwealth in Philadelphia criminal cases. His dereliction of duty and despicable behavior is unacceptable and cannot be tolerated. No public official is above accountability.”
