AUSTIN, TEXAS — In the wake of his failed bid for U.S. Senate, recently announced 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke confident about his chances, but one thing continues to haunt his political ambitions in every political contest he undertakes: his criminal record.
The “white Barack Obama” — a brand that even barometers of leftist orthodoxy reject, like The Washington Post and New York Times — was arrested in 1995 for breaking and entering, and attempted burglary.
O’Rourke downplayed the serious charge in a Washington Post interview, stating it was a “prank gone awry.”
O’Rourke was arrested again in 1998 for driving under the influence, fact the congressman acknowledged as “stupid,” stating that he regretted his decision.
Robert’s worldview appears to assume that any wrongdoing, any criminal act is second in importance to his belief that he is automatically “the right”
Other compromising video footage was also obtained showing the then-councilman of El Paso publicly intoxicated and dancing with women in a lewd fashion; it appears the congressman is then smacked around by the female while he lay on the floor — seemingly enjoying the activities.
The original video is gone from YouTube, but another video believed to be from the same night, and corroborates the original accounts. It is unknown what happened in between the two videos, nor what is also depicted in the now-deleted “spanking” video.
O’Rourke won the House race despite the evidence put forth, and was sworn into congress in 2013, but he lost his bid for U.S. Senate, and the standard for public conduct and respect for the rule of law are even more rigorous in the race to be the most powerful man in the world.
His criminal record hurt in the 2018 elections, and will likely resurface in the race for president in 2020.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
