Staff provides van to transport undocumented migrants; “I hope they don’t get in an accident.”
11/2/18 – Even MORE illegal campaign activity uncovered, this time in Robert O’Rourke’s camp.
So you wanna help the poor. Great! There are many thousands of Americans who desperately need your help!
While I love it when someone is moved to assist those struggling for any number of reasons, you are not allowed to commit campaign fraud by using donor money for anything other than what they donated that money for in order to do it. And you are not allowed to break the law either. The vast majority of laws in this country are written for a very good reason. While we work to change the laws that are not helpful we must obey them whether we agree with them or not. This is yet another display of those who either seem to think it is cool to break the law or that they don’t care that they are doing things that would outrage others. As typical, it’s all about how they “feel”. No, children, life is not all about how you feel; your feelings are actually only a small part of life.
Video footage captures staffers from the campaign plotting to illegally spend the money, hide the expenditures, and even pay for methods of transportation to help these illegal aliens.
Here are just some of the gems in this new undercover video:
- “I just hope nobody that’s the wrong person finds out about this.”
- “It’s f***ing happening.” O’Rourke Campaign Staff Uses Pre-Paid Cards for Honduran Alien Supplies
- “Don’t ever repeat this…” Campaign Staffers Explain How to Hide Campaign Expenditures for Aliens
- “If you get caught in some sort of violation that’s like a $50,000 fine,” “For me I can just ignore the rules and I’m like f**k it.”
- Transporting Aliens to “airports… bus stations,” “None of this is like sh*t there is a rulebook for”
- Staffer Says She Sent Confirming Texts to Director
PROJECT VERITAS writes:
Project Veritas Action Fund has released undercover video from 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. This is the eighth undercover video report Project Veritas has released in a series revealing secrets and lies from political campaigns in 2018.
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.”
