Skeleton Crawls From Beto’s Closet, Exposes His Shady Double Dealing


Behind every “man of the people’ Democrat usually sits a billionaire plutocrat with outsized influence who often controls key decisions for the candidate.

They hide these money men, sometimes in plain sight, and pray the connections cannot be made. Politics is a business, sadly, and you get what you paid for in the Democratic party.

Most people do not know how wealthy Nancy Pelosi really is, nor do most people know about Beto’s giant source of behind the scenes money.

Beto runs like a man who will fight for the poor versus the wealthy but in reality, his father-in-law is a billionaire who has spent lavishly on his campaigns via super PAC’s.

Beto has been under fire for questionable decisions he has made that benefited his financial backer father in law in typical pay to play liberal fashion. All skeletons will come out, that is what the Democrats never learn.

From The Daily Caller:

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke paid roughly $110,000 in campaign funds to a web development company while either he or his wife owned it, public records show.

Beto for Texas paid Stanton Street Technology Group $58,544 during the 2011-12 election cycle, $39,060 during the 2013-14 cycle, $9,290 in the 2015-16 cycle and $32,778 during the 2017-18 cycle, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Either O’Rourke or his wife owned Stanton Street — a small web development firm that O’Rourke founded in 1998 — during the vast majority of those payments. Such payments are legal, so long as the campaign is charged for the actual cost of the services, but ethics watchdogs have criticized the practice as a form of self-dealing.

O’Rourke’s wife, Amy Sanders O’Rourke, took over Stanton Street as the Texas Democrat entered Congress in January 2013. She controlled it until early 2017.

Amy O’Rourke sold her stake in the company on March 31, 2017, according to Beto O’Rourke’s 2017 year-end financial disclosure report. He listed the sale value in the $100,001 to $1 million range.

Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign — his first campaign since Amy O’Rourke sold the company — is not using Stanton Street, according to Wancho. Wancho said he thought there wasn’t anything unethical about a candidate directing campaign funds to a business they own.

“What would be out of bounds is if the candidate abused the process and over-paid for goods and services just to enrich themself or their family. I expect the combination of campaign expenditure reporting and investigative journalism to work together to root out the situations where the candidate is abusing the system,” he said.

Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign acknowledged TheDCNF’s request for comment but declined to respond by press time.

The only other federal candidate to report payments to Stanton Street was Democratic Rep. Veronica Escobar in 2018 as she ran to replace Beto O’Rourke in Texas’s 16th Congressional District, FEC records show.
