Campbell Soup Renounces Company Lobbyist's Unverified Claim About Soros

A company lobbyist with Campbell Soup Company circulated a conspiracy theory on Twitter that prominent Democratic donor George Soros' foundation is supporting a caravan of Central American migrants heading toward the U.S. border.

Kelly Johnston, the executive vice president of government affairs for Campbell, tweeted on Monday night that Soros' Open Society Foundation "planned and is executing" the migrant caravan, "including where they defecate."

The company later distanced itself from Johnston, saying "the opinions Mr. Johnston expresses on Twitter are his individual views and do not represent the position of Campbell Soup Company."

Johnston's Twitter has since been deleted.
