O’Rourke Campaign Denies Allegations That it Invited Illegals to Vote

Published

on

A Texas candidate for U.S. Senate is embroiled in controversy after reports surfaced that potential volunteers received text messages asking them to transport illegal aliens to polling stations on election day.

“The messages came from within the campaign’s text message operations, reading: ‘Hi, It’s Patsy here w/ Beto for Texas. Our records indicate that you’re a supporter. We are in search of volunteers to help transport undocumented immigrants to polling booths so that they will be able [sic] vote,'” according to The Independent.

Beto O’Rourke is squaring off with Sen. Rafael ‘Ted” Cruz (R-TX) in the general election on November 6.

Then campaign said that the text was “not an approved message by the campaign and it is definitely not something we are doing,” according to Ana Castañón, a communications director for O’Rourke.

The campaign further claimed that an “imposter” infiltrated its ranks to send the messages.

“An imposter signed up to be a volunteer on our texting team and texted you today with a message that was not approved by the campaign,” the campaign said in a follow-up text to volunteers,  according to the Austin American-Statesman. “We’re very sorry about this and have taken the necessary steps to make sure that they do not continue sending text messages with our campaign.”

The message puts the O’Rourke camp in an awkward lose/lose position. If it is lying about the source of the text message and did indeed invite illegals to vote, that is obviously a serious legal issue.

If, on the other hand, the text was actually sent by an imposter, it raises questions about O’Rourke’s fitness for office. If he can be duped into sending a moronic text, is he trustworthy enough to handle classified information as a Senator?

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”

Published

Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
