Contact InfluenceWatch with suggested edits or tips for additional profiles.

The Law & Justice PAC is a left-of-center PAC that primarily supported Democrat Max Wall’s unsuccessful 2018 campaign for Washington County, Oregon’s District Attorney Office.1 The organization is a federal PAC that works closely with the Oregon branch of the vast “Safety and Justice” network, a project of left-leaning billionaire George Soros which has used a network of similarly named state-level PACs to finance the campaigns of progressive Democratic candidates for district attorney in more than a dozen of America’s cities.


In 2018, the Law and Justice PAC received $2,000,000 from the Accountable Justice Action Fund, a 501(c)(4) organization created by the Open Philanthropy Project Fund, as a separate fund for supporting criminal justice reform. 2 3 During 2018, the Accountable Justice Action Fund received largescale support from just two organizations; the Open Philanthropy Action Fund contributed $6.3 million, and Chan Zuckerberg Advocacy contributed $10 million. 4 5

FEC records show that in 2020 Law & Justice PAC received $690,000 from Vote Liberation, another left-0f-center PAC with financial ties to the “Safety and Justice” network.6 7 Law & Justice PAC also received $15,000 from George Soros, and $13,000 from Democracy PAC, another PAC funded by Soros.8

Political Activities

Though Law & Justice PAC is a federal PAC its activities exclusively support the failed campaign of Max Wall for District Attorney of Washington County, Oregon. Oregon campaign finance records show that the organization contributed $680,000 to the Oregon Law and Justice PAC, another member of the “Safety and Justice” network which in-turn spent nearly all of that money paying Berlin Rosen, a left-leaning campaign communications firm, for advertising that supported Wall.9


Law & Justice PAC is led by its treasurer, 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).
