    Soros to Give to Obama Super PAC

    BERLIN, GERMANY - SEPTEMBER 10:  Billionaire investor George Soros speaks on "The Tragedy of the European Union" as a guest of The Institute for Media and Communications Policy on September 10, 2012 in Berlin, Germany. Soros said the biggest danger facing Europe through the Eurozone debt crisis is deflation, which the current conservative policies by the Bundesbank that push for austerity in debtor nations will only accelerate.

    A political advisor to George Soros announced Thursday that the billionaire plans to donate $1 million to Priorities USA, the major pro-Obama super PAC. Soros will also give $500,000 to two more super PACs supporting Congressional Democrats. Like many wealthy Democrats, Soros was against super PACs initially, but now Democrats hope his donation will inspire more wealthy donors. The announcement came at a luncheon for the Democracy Alliance, which supports liberal research institutes and grassroots organizations. In all, donors at the event are expected to give $10 million to Democratic super PACs.
