Looks like the cringy feminist dance ads and Village People tribute are the least of Beto O’Rourke’s concerns. Project Veritas released a new video allegedly showing some of his campaign staffers illegally using campaign funds to help Honduran migrants.
(Austin) Project Veritas Action Fund has released undercover videofrom current Congressman and US Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke’s campaign. The video exposes how his campaign staff appear to be illegally using campaign resources to buy supplies and help transport Honduran aliens.
A Project Veritas Action attorney reviewed the footage and assessed:
“The material Project Veritas Action Fund captured shows campaign workers covering up the true nature of spending of campaign funds and intentionally misreporting them. This violates the FEC’s rules against personal use and misreporting. It also violates Section 1001, making a false statement to the federal government. The FEC violations impose civil penalties, including fines of up to $10,000 or 200 percent of the funds involved. Violations of Section 1001 are criminal and include imprisonment of up to five years.”
Possible the campaign staffers thought their actions were gushing with compassion. Don’t you cold-hearted conservatives know they’re just helping poor, suffering migrants with food, supplies and to flitter throughout the United States to go forth and eventually vote Democrat. Allegedly.
Except they’re using campaign dollars to fund their bleeding heart project. That’s illegal. Good intentions or not, taking money from a campaign to fund something other than the campaign is no bueno. You can’t take campaign funds and buy a new car, a new house, or a new set of bodacious ta-tas. Campaign funds are for the campaign. Not for a little something-something on the side.
I can’t wait to hear what Ted Cruz has to say about this.
