Unbelievable undercover footage released by Project Veritas Thursday raises serious legal and ethical questions surrounding Beto O’Rourke’s senate campaign; revealing top staffers potentially violated federal law by using campaign finances to help undocumented workers traveling with the ‘migrant caravan.’
The bombshell video shows O’Rourke’s field manager and others scheming to help the migrants after crossing into the US; suggesting campaign workers use donations and other official funds and resources to assist Central American migrants entering the United States.
“You know that migrant caravan? A few of them got here already and they’re dropping them off like really close,” said a campaign field manager. “I’m going to get some food right now and some stuff to drop off.”
“Don’t ever repeat this stuff but like, if we just say we’re buying some food for an event, like Halloween events,” suggested another staffer.
“That’s not a horrible idea, but I didn’t hear anything,” said the manager. “I think we can use that with [prepaid campaign debit cards] to buy some food, all that sh*t can be totally masked.”
BETO’S BIG BUCKS: O’Rourke Raises Record $70 MILLION to Topple Ted Cruz
Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke raised a staggering $70 million in his efforts to oust Sen. Ted Cruz in Texas this election cycle; smashing records and outpacing the GOP legislator by a two-to-one margin.
“The cost of a U.S. Senate seat from Texas has never been higher, and Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s insurgent bid to topple Sen. Ted Cruz has now attracted $70 million as the El Paso Democrat keeps setting new national records,” writes the Dallas News.
“The Democrat’s latest campaign report, filed early Friday with the Federal Election Commission, showed he brought in nearly $8.5 million from Oct. 1 to 17, padding a tally that was already the most of for any Senate candidate anywhere, ever,” adds the author.
In contrast, Cruz has raised approximately $30 million since early 2017 according to FEC filings.
Despite O’Rourke’s deep pockets, Sen. Cruz maintains a slight lead in the Texas race; holding a five to seven point advantage in recent polls.
