REMINDER: Beto O’Rourke’s 2018 Campaign Illegally Spent Funds On Supplies For Migrant Caravans

Last November, Project Veritas released a video that revealed Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s 2018 campaign staffers admitting they were illegally spending donations on Honduran migrant caravans.

Watch below:

Some key takeaways from the 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 texts to director; told campaign manager Jody Casey, who says “Don’t Worry.”

Partial transcript:

Dominic Chacon (Field Manager): It’s f**king happening.

Anapaula Themann (Field Organizer): I just hope nobody that’s the wrong person finds out about this.

Chacon: For me I can ignore the rules and I’m like f**k it. I don’t mind breaking the rules and I can defend any position.

Chacon: Yeah, I was going to use the vans too… we could probably use that, get away with using the vans.

Project Veritas Undercover Journalist: Yeah.

Chacon: I’m thinking of like we’re going to use that to give some of those immigrants rides too. Like to the airport, to the bus station, why not, you know?

Chacon: I’m done being nice. I’m done being professional, you know? Cause nothing is professional. None of this is like sh*t there is a rule book for, you know?

Themann: Don’t ever repeat this and stuff but like if we just say that we’re buying food for a campaign event, like the Halloween events, cause there’s block walks coming up for Halloween.

Journalist: Have you been able to go and like, um, help out anymore, with the other people?

Themann: I did yesterday. Um, tonight we get more, so it’s, I don’t know how that’s going to go.

Journalist: Tonight you get more?

Themann: There’s more people coming.

Journalist: More people coming? Oh, wow.

Themann: Yeah. There’s four, three, two hundred more.

Journalist: So, Jody knows that like we use…

Chacon: Well, she doesn’t know that we used the, the prepaid card but, it’s okay. She doesn’t need to know. It’s going to be, it’s going to be…

Journalist: She doesn’t need to know.

Chacon: Yeah, she doesn’t need to know.

Chacon: If you get caught in some sort of like, you know, violation that’s like a $50,000 fine.

Journalist: Damn.

Chacon: Yeah, and if we got caught it’d be $50,000, you know? If that happens more than once, that’s a lot of f**king money you know?

Andrea Reyes (Field Manager): Yeah, I’ll tell her. The thing is yeah, as long as we’re not advertising it. I mean yeah, I don’t really know. They said it was fine so. I mean I don’t know, okay. I told you about it! I have the text messages to prove it, so…

Journalist: So you told like Jody?

Reyes: Yeah. I told Jody and I told my director.

Journalist: I know that we’re using some of the campaign resources to help the migrants and like, I just didn’t want anybody to get in trouble with that… like, I didn’t want them to ask me any questions about people using resources…

Jody Casey (Campaign Manager): Don’t worry.
