George Soros donated $147,000 to Georgia Safety and Justice, 100 percent of their funding.[2] [3]

Georgia Safety and Justice PAC is led by its chairman, Whitney Tymas, who serves as the head of the widely dispersed “Safety and Justice” network. Tymas also served on the board of the Civic Participation Action Fund (CPAF).
