Andrea Soros Colombel, the daughter of liberal billionaire financier George Soros, recently cut a $500,000 check to the political action arm of Planned Parenthood, according to Federal Election Commission records.
Andrea made the $500,000 donation on Aug. 1 to Planned Parenthood Votes, the New York-based Super PAC affiliated with Planned Parenthood, filings show. The donation accounts for more than a quarter of the money that the group has raised so far this year, which shows $1.7 million in contributions between January and the end of August.
Andrea also gave $50,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising effort between Clinton's campaign, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and more than 30 state Democratic parties, records show. She added $33,400 to the DNC and $25,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC). Andrea also gave tens of thousands to a number of Democratic campaigns and state parties.
Other Soros family members have also provided a steady stream of cash to the group in recent years.
In addition to Andrea, George Soros gave a $1 million to Planned Parenthood votes last year. Jonathan Soros, the chief executive officer of JS Capital Management LLC and George's son, gave two donations for a combined $2 million to the group.
The Soros family was among the top funders to Planned Parenthood Votes throughout the entire 2016 cycle.
